Old Friend, Unusual Place

Yesterday evening I went to the Carolina Petro gas station in Burgaw to get gas for the mowers. As I was getting back in the car I heard a car pull up with a heavy metal song playing (turned out to be Pantera). I was thinking the music sounded familiar, but I didn’t pay too much attention. I did look over as I was driving out and suddenly thought I recognzed John Kokinda.

I was right, so I pulled around again and rolled down the window to talk. He’s working in Wilmington, as a mechanic at a RV sales lot near Gordon road. We talked for a while and then I headed back home.
