Countdown To Fun and More Good Memories

September 4, 2015

How many times have you wanted to do or go someplace but didn’t and later regretted it? My son and I had this conversion last week as we reminisced about all the fun things we did together when he was kid.  “A lot of good memories,” he said.

Later after thinking about it, I sent him this text message.

There is a lesson to be learned from this conversation. Do fun things and you will have good memories.”

His reply: “That is a good lesson.”

Check the flights, scan the train schedules, book your hotel suite and join us for this fabulous event!

Create good memories!

Time is going quickly and the hotel discount expires soon, so make your plans now to join us for a fun and fabulous weekend.

Post Note: After my son and I had that conversation we booked a fishing trip and bought tickets to an up coming Chargers football game. We decided to create more good memories together and see if going forward we can’t drop all the reasons why we can’t.

What I have found in life is there are always reasons why one can’t or shouldn’t do something, but if you want to have good memories you just do them anyway. See you in Minneapolis.

    Carlos, I will be in Canada as all you nice folks are gathering to commemorate the incredible experience you made possible for us. I hope that there are plenty of pictures with names from the past. Also, as I recall, you have a great deal of pull with a certain young man who is extremely talented at videography. Perhaps he could be persuaded to make a video of the fun for those of us who can’t be there? ☜(©v©)☞
