Last week we invited an old friend to dinner who flew in to attend a wedding. I live in Illinois, he is from Maryland, where I am from. We keep in touch, even though I haven't lived there since 1982. He brought his parents, and they asked if it would be okay to bring a neice of the mom. Sure! We never met them, and they live in a town about 30 miles from me and my family. At the dinner we found out that the neice worked at the same place my wife worked at before she married. Stranger still, my wife and daughter took a tour of the US Weather Service in Romeoville Illinois last week. At the dinner was the husband of the neice, who works at the Weather Service, and was not 10 feet from my girls during the tour. I've heard of stranger coincidences... like the time a friend of mine who took a trip on the Trans-Siberian Railway. During a stop in the middle of nowhere, she turned a corner and literally ran into her first love, whom she hadn't seen since 1965. Got any better ones?
