    Headed down to Louisiana this Columbus Day weekend...

    Finally getting myself back home for a belated wedding celebration with the family...me and the wife got hitched in April but didn't invite anyone to the wedding...hence the delayed reception!

    As an added bonus that I didn't find out about until last week, I will be also be able to attend something on Friday regarding my old high school playing days. I got an invitation for a tribute to my old high school football coach...and since I will actually be home to attend my belated wedding reception that my family is putting on for me and my wife, I will actually be able to attend the tribute. They invited all of the former players to participate in a halftime ceremony on the field followed by a party after the game...I haven't seen some of these guys in over 20 years...it should be pretty cool...extra special because it isn't just my graduating class but also all the guys from when I was a freshman, sophomore and junior...plus the younger guys that I knew that played right after me. My coach won two state championships (I was on the first championship team) plus one runnerup and numerous district championships. He is also in the Louisiana High School Athletic Association Hall of Fame, so it should be a huge deal....a once-in-a-lifetime event.

    Gonna fly into Houston and drive to my hometown in Louisiana...not gonna go anywhere near New Orleans, that's for sure!

    Re: Headed down to Louisiana this Columbus Day weekend...

    Oh, I will...and BOTH of you know what I mean!!!

    The tribute to Coach was outstanding...and I got to see some old teammates that I hadn't seen in over 20 years! Everyone seems to be doing well...one of my old teammates is a track coach in Florida who coached Justin Gatlin (the 100 meter Olympic champ) in high school...pretty cool.

    We got plenty of presents...even though I didn't request them. The family made the reception a big hit...my uncle who used to live in Minnesota has a group that performs in local clubs using a karaoke sound system...he used to do this in MN over at the Blue Fox near St. Paul about 10 years ago. Anyway, yours truly was actually induced to get up and sing a song for my new bride...I was not too shabby for my first time...only got a few ripe tomatoes thrown at me! LOL
