The other evening I was talking to a young man that I have known since his was in middle school. He will be a senior this year. He is an
outstanding bowler and is on his way to a National Championship
tournament in two weeks. So I was curious what his plans for the
future are. I kiddingly asked if he was going to go pro, then I asked
if he was going to bowl at the collegiate level. I was very pleased to
hear that he’s looking at a few schools that have top notch bowling
programs, Nebraska, FSU, Moorehead State. Then I asked what he was
considering for a major – Engineering – good. I suggested he consider
Chemical Engineer, he said he really likes Chemistry. On to his
grades, what courses he will be taking as a senior, test scores… I
remembered he had had a bad year at school, but he turned himself
around – he’s carrying a solid B average. I was a little concerned
that he was taking Algebra II and Trig this coming year. I warned him
he was heading into an advanced math intensive zone and that his
freshman year in college would be even more intense. But he’s a good
kid and loves bowling.
On the home front, we are getting ready for the 4th of July weekend –
heading up to Morristown, TN to spend the holiday with Jeff’s best
friend and his family. I’m gearing up to do my BBQ’d ribs and potato
skins. Think I’ll do a pecan pound cake too.
Seems like people want to send me work just as I’m getting ready to
try and take some time away from the computer…oh well.
