It’s a saying for a reason

East Glacier from ridge
From this high ridge, looking west, you can see St Mary Lake and Two Dog Flats.

The early bird gets the worm. You can get a lot done early before most people wake up. While others are crawling out of bed, you can be on the road to adventure. This applies to life, not just a conference.

.

PS. 08.04 Thursday Leave @ 730am for Two Medicine…no dining available so we drove to East Glacier and the Glacier Park Lodge but they stopped breakfast at 10am and no lunch until 1130am, so we took Hwy 2 to Apgar and ate at Eddie’s, shopped. Hiked Hidden Lake trail. Dinner at Logan Pass of chips & salsa and cheese & crackers. Bear hunting at Two Dog Flats and saw about 30 elk at 815pm. Desserts at Rising Sun.

Honey, It's For You

The winningest women’s college basketball coach died recently

Sanibel sunset
Family. We think and hope all our Family members will live to a ripe old age. Photo last night.

 

Pine Island Southern tip
We visited Pine Island’s northern and southern tip (above) yesterday. Pine Island is Florida’s largest at 18 miles x 2 miles. It ends here. Everything eventually comes to an end. It was an hour drive from Sanibel.

 

The winningest women’s college basketball coach died recently.

Article snippet:

 

She was diagnosed with early onset dementia in 2011 at the age of 59. Summit decided to retire in 2012, taking the role of “head coach emeritus.”

 

Above average physical health means nothing.

This is so easy to forget.

So we do.

Each day i fight the battle that begins with, “Your crazy idea that you want to live like your 60th birthday is your end day is overreacting.”

Says who?

Overreacting is an easy finger to point.

Live like you mean it.

PS. In 1996 my Dad, 58 years old, was diagnosed with early onset, rapid-progression Alzheimer’s disease.  My 57th birthday was a couple weeks ago.

1st month of retirement

Blurry midlife celebration moments like a Disney retirement party

Orlando's Best Keynote Speaker jeff noel

 

(photo: Last night at the top of Disney’s Contemporary Resort… jeff noel, Lori and Joe McColgan)

His colleagues from the past 30 years had a couple recurring themes in their stories and memories:

  • Optimism
  • Positivity
  • Creativity
  • Courage
  • Encouragement
  • Fun

Last night was the final, official moment as a Disney Cast Member.

It kills him to leave. He IS Disney. He’s not running from something. He’s running to something, and has been for the past six years.

The other theme, shared over and over last night with his wife? Because of his intentionality he’s going to be incredible successful.
