It’s All Good But Some Is Even Better
Nobody asked but …
I am inspired by Skyler’s column for this week, A Great Year, A Better Year, which caused me to think about real accomplishments on the home front. I think the best thing that happened was that I discovered Skyler and EVC, and Skyler discovered me. This happened in a year in which no small amount of positives occurred for yours truly and his loved ones — my lovely bride Kilgorette’s retirement and far greater happiness, a new great-grandson, a fine new sunroom, a trip to Spain, my Dad celebrated his 93rd year, I got a new (to me) farm truck, we had three great get-togethers with our oldest and best friends, I listened to hundreds of hours of freedom-oriented podcasts, I joined the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Kentucky, and lots of other joys too numerous to mention. But the event that stands out, because it was unpredictable and perpendicular to my life up to now, was getting the opportunity to become a columnist (as Verbal Vol — here) and a blogger (as Kilgore Forelle — here and here) at EVC. Thank you, Skyler, and thank you fellow voluntaryists.
