OOh, OOOh! OOOHH! ARGHHHH!!! Two weeks ago I sold my prized Super-duty F250 4x4 and now drive a little Honda Civic to make the Low Rider happen so you were closer than you knew with that statemdnt. So put away the green. St. Patti's day is over.Hey that's a nice Honda you have there!
Yup! And you?Are you going to go to Laconia
I remember sitting on the rolled-up tarp and conversing with you. It is always a pleasure to do so. I was also was having a bad day and in some kind of hurt [probably the weather or the cold floor], which also bent my mind a little, like the tiger with a splinter in his paw. I wasn't going to work out, fact I was contemplating leaving. But I looked at everyone lining up facing me. I looked into all their faces and said to myself "I don't belong sitting here, I belong working out with them." ...And then I got up and worked out. When class was over I felt much better both internally and externally.You were so bothered by your inability, that you jumped up and went down stairs and donned your Gi.
Before my accident I figured I was a fighter, but used all my fight to walk again, with nothing left. When I had my good legs, I used to say "You can take the dog out of the fight but you can't take the fight out of the dog." When I read words like yours or hear similar talk, I feel there might be a little fight left in this old dog, yet. Thanx.Your determination was amazing, and with the advent of Jay, sensei, I am most happy that you will progress.
I hate it when I feel challenged like that. Dang! Now I've got to get up off my butt and return to the Hut as well.At last, I now feel that I will commence my activity in Uechi Ryu with GEM,
I remember that your determination was right there, and you earned it.I also remember your support when I went up for promotion at Summer Camp.
