If Florida weren’t a land of sand and limestone I’d need oars to get home today.
I find it interesting how much of the four years I spent at the University of Florida that I can replay in my mind. Perhaps my brain was more fertile and receptive to remembering things at that time? I can replay situations that occurred here from 1987-1991 better than I can most of the life that I have experienced over the past twenty years. On Wednesday afternoon I took a walk and looked for the outdoor racquetball courts on which my friend Tom and I used to play. I retraced my steps from my time here only to encounter buildings which I don’t believe existed back then. I found an article placing the construction of the indoor basketball training facility, which sits where I recall the racquetball courts being, staring in 1999.
Sadly I didn’t get to wander campus as I wanted to do. The rain finally let up for an hour around 5:30pm. By that time I made it out to a brewery, ate a decent curry at a restaurant, and later started Night One of my “Making New Memories” tour. (details coming Monday)
You know life is weird, right? I am considering stopping to eat lunch at a Mennonite cafe in Montezuma GA on my drive home today. Why? Because it was mentioned in an email I received this week. I am fascinated by Mennonites (as well as the Amish), but more than that, the reviews of the cafe are really good.
I solved today’s Wordle in three attempts; my starter today was STONE.
