Just got back from a weekend in Madison, Wisconsin. I was making some instructional wrestling videos with my favorite ex-teammate Barry, celebrating his 50th birthday, and watching his daughter run a great high school cross-country race. Heck, I even went to church this morning, and lightning didn't strike me.

I hadn't been on a wrestling mat in 20 years, so I'm a little sore. The bad news: Barry politely suggested that I not wear my circa-1990 wrestling shoes. I guess it would be like an old football player walking onto the field with a leather helmet. The good news: he said I could probably sell them on eBay for $100.

Here's to good friends, fond memories, and all the really important things we didn't have in our lives 20 years ago.

  1. All that corn reminds me of the years we lived in Nebraska. Never before or since have I seen such immense fields of corn. It sounds like you had a great trip. I also am thankful for the blessings of the last 20 years. The things I've learned, often the hard way, are included on that list. A friend asked me once if I could trade everything I've learned through experience to go back and be young again would I do it. Not a chance. =) Some things are way more important than others. Have a great week.
