Gary’s favorite Tango moment… ”My favorite Tango moment was when my wife’s sister was visiting us and accidentally hit my 2-month old son’s head on the corner of a wood table. Gave him a bloody scratch and he was crying. My wife freaked out, and thought we had to run to emergency. Instead I Tangoed my neighbor Enoch who is an urgent care doctor – he was somewhere camping in the woods, but I was able to reach him via Tango, and showed him the baby and the scratch and had my wife ask him questions… and we were able to determine that the baby was alright, and everyone soon calmed down. Tango saved us from near heart-attack!.
