Abstract: When I received the unexpected but attractive suggestion to write something about Gregory (Grisha) Margulis I began to wonder what I could communicate to the reader. I wanted to avoid a stereotypical anniversary article of the kind seen for example in Russian Mathematical Surveys or Physics Uspechi that lists some biographical dates of the honoree as well as his titles and honors and reviews his scientific results. I will instead tell some episodes of my many years of acquaintance with Grisha. Perhaps, it is better to say that these are some observations on our life, based on our lasting friendship.
