Joe explained that Bill had been trying to talk him into joining him on a trip to Russia.
The goal, that Bill would find true love in the former USSR and bring his "beauty" back to the U. I am sure I gave Joe a look that communicated that I thought his friend was desperately pursuing a pipe dream. Skeptical, I asked if he was really going to go through with it.
At the time I had never heard of Russian dating or Russian brides. However, keeping to his plan, Bill did visit Russia and came back with pictures of a lady named Olya, a lady to whom he had promised to bring back to the U. But it was clear from the way his face lit up when he spoke of her that he was indeed going to marry the lady.
He explained that he had intended to meet four other ladies but he dropped that plan when he met the first lady, Olya. I can't say his story was entirely illogical because after seeing her photos and listening to his description of his time with her, it was quite possible that he'd found a high quality lady, if not his soul mate.
However, I still remained skeptical and soon forgot about Bill and his hopes for starting a family with his exotic Russian bride, Olya.
That is, until one day in January 2011 I bumped into Bill and Olya at the health club restaurant and ended up joining them for dinner.
Let me say, I was breath taken and for a number of reasons.
For starters, she looked even more beautiful than the photos Bill had shown me three years ago.
And with all due respect to Bill, he is an average looking man at best.
Even more surprising than her beauty was that she was all over Bill, holding his arm, hugging him, giving him little kisses on the cheek from time to time.
To use a baseball metaphor, it appeared that Bill had hit himself a grand slam.
