Ten Years Ago Today

On March 26, 2002, the undergraduate-level Jazz History class I was taking to fulfill a graduate requirement was unexpectedly cancelled, leaving the entire afternoon free. Rather than waste the opportunity, we piled into Kathy's RAV-4 with Mike's new dog, Ginger, and hit the nearest beach, which was only 20 minutes away from Tallahassee. Marsh Sands Beach was more of a nature spot than a sunbathing spot, and had a small sandy island, dubbed Briland, that was only accessible at low tide.

The beach that day was swarming with humping horseshoe crabs, and I built a turtle out of sand. That was also the day that Ginger learned that it was fun to run away from Mike. The LL Bean backpack shown in the upper right lasted me all the way through seven years of college and grad school, and is currently gainfully employed by Rebecca for her physical therapy schooling.

There will be no update tomorrow, as I'll be on a business trip to sunny Norfolk (pronounced "Nuffuck" by the local weatherman).
