Etchings in the Sand…

Thoughts and Photos from the Desert…

He Beat The Old, Old Man…

I was a country fair miler back in high school and college days. For years I’ve mentally strutted a bit when I remembered the day my coach told me I had broken the Connecticut state high school track record for the mile. 4:48. Whether or not that was true I can’t swear to, but it has made me feel pretty good – even now.

Now, this upstart kid:

Guy named Michael Bourland from Neenah, Wisconsin tells me he did a 4:44! I guess it’s OK since he’s my grandson. And from Wisconsin. Two definite plusses.

I’m proud…
