A couple of very different shooting mornings: Yesterday’s 1,500 in the perfect stillness of a sunny Epsom morning took about an hour and 44 minutes. Today was a little wetter, a little windier, and a little wilder (Wow!) … and took a solid nine minutes longer. But as the kids today say, it’s all good. (I’m so hip it’s scary. Although, now that I think of it, just using the word “hip” is probably pretty dorky. Then again, I’m pretty sure that my recognition of the fact that “hip” is pretty dorky makes me pretty hip. Or gnarly. Or something.)
Today, The Beautiful Heth and I are heading south to Bethesda, Md., for tomorrow’s dedication of the National Intrepid Center of Excellence, a 72,000-square-foot medical facility dedicated to research, diagnosis and treatment of military personnel and veterans suffering from traumatic brain injury and psychological health issues … brought to you by the amazing folks at the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund — which is where these Hoops For Heroes dollars are going.
Thanks to Ghee-Ghee (my mom, the Dreamweaver) for taking over kid duty for the next couple of days. (Good luck with Rosie at bedtime.)
And if I may, a special hello and thanks to one of my oldest friends on the planet, Jim Gleason, who is working like crazy in the background to do some pretty cool things for the cause, to be announced. I can’t tell you how much it’s appreciated, Jim.
Looking forward to Bethesda!
Oh, and we’re now at 315,507 down, 684,493 to go to 1 million made foul shots.
