The Time of Our Lives

"Bless The Beasts and The Children..." -- Karen Carpenter

Hey Everyone,
Hope all is well in your worlds. Our past 3 talks have been wonderful. We were in Jersey yesterday with Mrs. Hurley's kids then had a few talks today in Baltimore and Bethesda. The energy at each school is enthralling. Not only from the students but teachers as well. One teacher at our school in Baltimore actually began tap dancing upon petting Mr. Bill. The kids in Bethseda were stalking me everywhere in search of an autograph. Jersey's students kept inquiring, "Do you know so and so?" "What's Lance Mackey like?" Well, I used to hang out with him a bit but not much lately. Hopefully one of these days we'll be able to rectify this situation.
The last few nights we've been staying in a trailer at Cherry Hill Park in College Park, Maryland. Our friends John and Susan stay here as a manager. It's one of the nicest facilities in the U.S.-swimming pools, sauna, jacuzzi, etc. We gave these guys a sledride up on Godwin Glacier a few years back. He's an ex marine and pro rugby player while she ran an environmental awareness program. (as well as once dating legendary QB Billy Kilmer of the Redskins) Had a great B-B-Q tonite met one of their workers who is the uncle of former DePaul and NBA b-ball player Rod Strickland. Wonderful meeting new folks along the way each day, our list of friends continues to grow.
On to Charlotte, North Carolina in the morning, will be staying at my cousin Bob's this weekend- then on to Atlanta on Sunday. A well deserved break for Wild Bill, believe it or not some times a dog can get too much love and petting- animals need their privacy too! He's snoring away next to me as I write these words. Thanks to all of the people at the various schools for helping us organize things these past few days. Especially my assistant Susan who chaperoned us around town today. Will be seeing all you folks down in the Peach Tree state soon!
