wierd as it gets
Alan returned from his mission a few months before I did. The year was 1978 and we were both headed to BYU in Provo. He found an apartment and started school a semester before me. We had been best friends for a long time and wanted to room together. However, he was already settled and had a contract with the King Henry apartment complex for the school year. I moved into the King Henry complex a few apartments away with some friends of his that had an opening for a roommate. This was during the early years of Sunstone Magazine, which held it's first annual symposium the next year. I roomed with some guys who went on to become leaders of the Sunstone organization so I was exposed to new ways of thinking about LDS scholarship. It was a fun time and there was a lot of energy around.
Speaking of King Henry...more about the BYU story later ... now I'm going to watch the first episode of the 4th season of "The Tudors".
