Kodak Moments #2

I got hundreds to thousands of photos through my life.  A lot of which would match up to stories here on Cowabunga Corner, but for one reason or another they are not chosen.  This does not mean that these photos are not worth sharing and do not hold stories of their own.  I would like to keep sharing what I can here on the site, so whenever I can I will share a photo and a story to go along with the photo.  If it’s a part of events that have been shared here, we will link back to the stories of the events themselves as well.  Hope everyone enjoys.  Today’s photo is a shot of Ernie Reyes Jr, my mom and I in June 2013.

Erine was teaching a class at a local dojo.  He surprised me that day and called up asking if I would come out to see.  This was the first time that my mom and dad got to meet Ernie.  We all traveled out to the Dojo and spent the evening there.  The next day Miki and I went to DLUX Karate for a day with Ernie.  I'm showing Ernie somemthing on my phone, as I have a ton of photos on the phone I got no clue which one I am showing him in this photo.

I talk about this day often to my friends, because Ernie did surprise me that he was in Michigan.  It was his first time coming to Michigan, making the full weekend a real honor to be there for.  He will be back in Michigan for DLux Entertainment Expo on March 28th, 2014. 

Have you had the chance to meet Ernie Reyes Jr.?  Would you want to meet him if he was in your area?  Please share memories, dreams, comments and questions below!
