A little over a week ago, my photographer buddy Dean Groover and I drove out to some property his family recently purchased and did a bit of exploring. I met Dean over 20 years ago, when I first worked for my uncle's ad agency, four advertising agencies ago. He was living and working in California and was hired on a few large projects we put together. He's been back in Springfield for a few years, though. Luckily, we kept in touch.
