If I had known that floating on a $5 innertube in a $10 inflatable kiddie pool would be so relaxing, I would have done it years ago.

Waking up in a foreign land

Waking up in a foreign land

I received an email Thursday morning from apple.com that suggested I might have recently downloaded an app while I was in mainland China. Since I had just woken up, and my eyes were still a bit blurry, and the words in the email seemed extra tiny, I had to squint a bit to reread the message and did reconfirm what was written – that I had indeed been to China. Wow!

What a man!

What a man!

My first memory of Mr. Willie Williams is meeting him when I was nine years old. My dad was a teacher and a coach, and we had just moved to Paris, Texas, where my dad had gotten a new coaching job. I met Coach Williams during the fall of that year. Mr. Williams was coaching at Mount Pleasant High School and they were playing basketball at Paris High School. I remember my dad introducing me to Coach Williams that night, and I remember watching the Mt. Pleasant Tigers whip up on the Paris Wildcats. I was what you might call a “gym rat,” and I had a basketball in my hand all of the time. I had no idea that my relationship with Willie Williams was just beginning.
