With the Thanksgiving holiday, the press of my day job and a trip to Georgia last week for my dad's 70th birthday, I have been unable to post anything of late. I apologize.
After over 300 posts and 6+ years of purely business-related features, I thought I'd take a moment to post something personal and recognize my dad, pictured below on the left, who turned 70 in October. Dad is a retired attorney from Washington, Indiana, where I grew up, and is very dear to me. My little brother Matt, pictured on the right - with me in between - had the privilege of playing Augusta National this past Wednesday. Matt, who works in the golf industry in Atlanta, was able to get us on the course through his contact, Danny Yates, pictured in the center.
For those who may be a fans of The Masters, you'll recognize #12 green in the background, as we stand on Hogan Bridge over Rae's Creek. My dad, a life-long average golfer at best, birdied this hole. Needless to say, it was a special day. Kudos to Matt and Mr. Yates for making this dream come true.
Happy holidays, and thanks to all who read my blog. Back to work next week.....
