Rodney Murphy and Paul Gilbert
In November 2000 we met in a neighborhood bar in San Francisco halfway between where we each lived. We agreed to meet for coffee later in the week to continue the conversation without friends present. On the agreed night I was at one café and he was at the other, about a half a mile away. Both cafes shared the same name and each of us went to the one that was closer to our respective apartments. We each sat alone waiting for the other. And we each felt like we had been stood up. Then it dawned on Paul that perhaps I was at the other café. He ran the half-mile to find me waiting – five minutes later and I would have been gone. Even with him sweaty and out of breath, the chemistry was still there. We talked for hours that evening. Thanks to his perseverance and my patience we have been together for almost eleven years. Though we still disagree about which café was the correct meeting place. We married in California in July 2008 with our families present.

Proud to say I'm related to you even if it's slightly removed by my former marriage. Good Paul & Rodney and may your life be filled with many debates of which coffee shop is best!
