1/6/11 Just cleaning off my desk and found where I jotted a quote as I watched the Kennedy Center Honors show: "Paul was born with the gift of song, he gave it to us to sing forever." Kind of defines our lives doesn't it?

As a 'get well wish' to Georgann, I've uploaded some gorgeous photos she sent me this summer that I never got around to posting...and I have MORE 'stuff' from her too! Time, my mortal enemy! Check out the links below to see the gorgeous surroundings where Georgann is spending her recuperation - but George, it's hard to enjoy all this beauty one-handed!!!!! This is Georgann and Steve's condo at The Landings, in Dunnellon, FL, on the Gulf Coast between Ocala & Crystal
River. Lately it's better known as the Georgann Recuperative Center! They are only 5 minutes away from Rainbowl River State Park. Sounds like a great place for a winter vacation to me!
Check out these links for more of a beautiful part of the west coast of Florida!
The third bit of history [sold at auction recently] was the document that listed the 13 rules for the game of basketball invented by James Naismith in 1891. It sold for the highest price of all, $4,338,500. The money from the sale will go to the Naismith International Basketball Foundation.
The auction results were big news on TV and really caught my attention. My only connection to basketball is that my daughter played it well in high school, lettered I think, and at KHS I broke a finger playing it, thus ending what surely wouldn't have been a stellar career anyway! But I do have lots of KU pals and am just thinking this is really a wonderful thing to have happened for the Basketball Foundation, lots of good will come from that money. Jayhawks Rock!
