Except for not being able to access Google, we have had the best weekend you could imagine. For example, the United states government, in its infinite wisdom, has put economic sanctions in place against the Sudan in an attempt to stop the gun running and the violence against the people in Darfur. Not a perfect solution, but at least someone is watching. Wouldn't it make you feel warm and fuzzy all over to think that a life was saved by an American Foreign Policy? Couldn't you just chant USA USA USA?
Then, there was the First Annual Jacob N. Perkins Annual Memorial Golf Tournament at the Bretton Woods Golf Course. The Tournament will be put on every year by the Poolsville High Boosters with the proceeds going to a scholarship fund in Jake's name. This year, the Fund gave two scholarships of $1000 each to students going to college. The family and friends have been donating, and the money will be invested. Each year, the scholarship will be larger.
And the piece d'resistance was Sunday, when I got to play with a whole bunch of kids. I got to do a little cooking on a grill with a young man who turns out to be a spectacular chef, he really didn't need me at all, and spent the day laughing so much I wore myself out. I left feeling rejuvenated, yet exhausted. I really owe my friend for a fabulous day. Everything was possible now. Even a vaccine for common sense, which isn't so common, just ask Dave Barry.
So the lesson I have learned from the weekend is this, I need to look to see how to make the World a better place, and do my little thing to make it a better place. And then hope that I set a good example. By the way, if you live anywhere close to Utah, could you stop in and see how MJ is doing? Thanks.
