Today, March 14, 2017, I thought of Gordon Barnes as the CNN Daybreak weatherman in the CNN Washington, D.C. on Wisconsin Ave., Washington, D.C. today.. I am not sure why Gordon came to my mind. Except I can tell you - I was 23 years young in 1983 when Gordon was anchoring the weather at CNN. I made $8,000.00 a less as a tape supervisor at CNN. Gordon and I had a great friendship - full of early morning jokes, which included weather forecasts. In addition, there was a Greek Mom and Pop breakfast / lunch place near CNN in the alley. Dear Gordon made me a deal...I would get his egg/cheese sandwich and he would buy mine. Such a deal. I was delighted to call Mama and Pop to place the order and pick the sandwiches up for the two of us. A beloved treat and a very grateful treat that I will always thank Gordon for in the beginning of my career. He taught me to pass what you have "Forward." Gordon was a heartfelt man - who shared many of his traveling stories. Which led me to travel to 68 countries thus far in my life. Gordan if you are alive- I thank you...and give you a hug of life for egg/cheese sandwiches. If you have passed on - I thank you for your generously and the heartfelt lessons of "pass it forward!" This is what I am doing today, Gordon, at Elon University, Elon, North Carolina. If anyone knows if Gordon Barnes is alive - please tell Gordon, Linda Lashendock, (Stewart, Florida) said HI. I think of him often and the lovely lessons that he taught me during his time at CNN- Washington, D.C. On March 14, 2017, in Elon, NC the weather is 31 degrees and with winds up to 20 miles per hour. Smiles and egg/cheese sandwich, Linda Lashendock P.S. Thank you everyone for your comments on Gordon. I so appreciate your comments...and reading them. Linda
