4244 - 4442
I used the Beach Boys tune as the title of this entry as I have spent several days in Louisville, the scene of my adolescence and consequently my high school days at Ballard High School. I have had the distinct pleasure of seeing several of my high school friends who are still in the area. I add a life philosophy to my journey: Be true to your friends and family. That is what is important to me.
It seems that they carry a bit of the life philosophy I had already picked up along Ted's Excellent Adventure: do what you love. That can either be in your work or in your passion. Sometimes work just supports your passion.
I am sorry I did not get pics of everyone; I located these on the internet.
Denny Cornett is somehow keeping younguns healthy in his pediatric practice, and has a passion for vintage motorcycles and race cars (and the garages to prove it!).
Walter Tunis works in a hospital by day to support his "real" job; he has been writing freelance music reviews since 1980 for the Lexington Tribune, and has a column and a blog: The Musical Box.
Sloane Graff is making the world a better place, particularily through Habitat for Humanity.
Christy Kayse Farrier is just out of a cast for ankle ligament damage and is an avid University of Kentucky fan (and is loving the Pitinio incident).
The pic I did get is of my BFF Bill Harting. I think we are twin sons of different mothers, to borrow the Dan Fogelberg album title. In fact I called his mother "Other Mother." While his work is unfulfilling, he has found a passion in photograhy/videography and has started doin weddings. Bill lives in Greenwood, Indiana; I travelled up there today from Louisville.
Two additions: first is a pic of Watterson Elementary School in Louisville, where my officemate Angela's sister works. I am sure the crossing guard thought I was some kind of creepy interstate stalker taking photos.
Finally a beer: I had another Odell Brewing Company (Fort Collins, CO) offering: an IPA. Again nothing special.
Next I will blue highway across Indiana and Ohio, spending the night with another high school buddy near Cincy.
