After reading a post like yesterdays, I shouldn’t have to remind all of you that life is short. So it shouldn’t surprise any of my readers that I believe sometimes you need to be spontaneous—to try or do the unexpected. I do find myself clinging to the familiar in an attempt to control something—anything in an otherwise out-of-control life.
Pattie and I both graduated from the University of Wisconsin. Having just moved to Florida, we both miss the Midwest. (OK—maybe not the winter weather!) The UW Badger men’s basketball team won their first round NCAA tournament game Friday. Today (Sunday morning) after attending a wedding in Orlando last night, we find ourselves a short two hour drive from Jacksonville, where UW is playing Cornell in the second round of the tournament. As my wife stated emphatically: “We must go!” “Really?” I replied. “Absolutely” she responded. That was good enough for me… So we are leaving Orlando in twenty minutes. Next stop: Jacksonville!
Hope we can find tickets—hope we win! I will let you know how our adventure plays-out.
Feel good and keep smiling! Pat
