Jeff Suchanek and his sweet wife Jeanne made my day. I was feeling a little down this morning when suddenly Jeff sprang into my office with a totally unexpected gift. They’d gone to a reading by poet F. Keith Wahle at Brier Books. They thought I would enjoy his work. They were right! It’s hilarious and just what the doctor ordered. I don’t know what I did to deserve having thoughtful friends, but I’m sure glad I did it, whatever it was.

The quote sounds like something Jeff would say. This is Jeff Suchanek and his wife, Jeanne. I’ve worked with Jeff for over 15 years. He’s one of the finest people I know, and one of the best oral history interviewers in the world. Years ago, when he was director of the Nunn Center, we worked so well together that I hesitated when the chance came along to take over NDNP. Fast-forward all these years and we’re in the same department again enjoying one another’s company. He and Jeanne invited Stacy Yelton and I to their beautiful home for a cookout this evening. We were greeted with tons of dog love from their boy Grady; the biggest Aussie I’ve ever seen. We walked, we ate, we laughed, we talked. Jeff and Jeanne are two bright stars in my world and I see more dinners in our future.
