Gary Meikle and Mary Lloyd, or as many refer to them as The Ary’s. Jack of all traits, master of all traits. I have known Gary for well over a decade now. (Neither of us has aged a bit.) Mary, his bride of only a few years, feels like she’s been in my life as long. They are such good people with infectious personalities and hobbies. Surfing, beach clean-ups, music festivals, pizza making, beer and wine drinking/making, gardening, volunteering, and the list can go on for days. Gary is single handedly lowering the average age at the Ballard Elks club – one of the best kept secrets in the area! Mary is as smart as a whip with a consulting business in education www.marylloydconsulting.com and Gary is following her entrepreneurial spirit with a new business constructing pizza ovens (website coming soon at redgrotto.com). Their generous pennies were exchanged over a pizza fest in their backyard and I wish I would have snapped a shot of one of those amazing pies. All the more reason for scratch & sniff!
