December 2, 2012: ...and the answer is, "I'm going to Disney World."

Saturday was an exhilarating and exhausting day that started at 6 a.m. and ended at 5:30 p.m. Louisa Middle School hosted the Sixth Grade Showcase for Lawrence and Boyd counties. For the first time in the history of the school we came in first place in quick recall and first place overall in the showcase. Our kids have worked so hard and we are so proud of them. This is the reward for work that started at Louisa Elementary School and continued when these students advanced to our school where they have competed against older, more experienced teams all year long. Saturday they performed like seasoned professionals, unshakable, unstoppable against excellent competition among some of the nicest, most sportsmanlike schools in the state of Kentucky. God bless you all.

My co-worker, Donna West, texted me and said, “What are you gonna do now? Go to Disney World?” Wow, a new excuse to go, as if I needed one. Do you?

In 1981, the doctor hit the baby one more time, or at least smacked her butt, when Britney Spears was born. Now I was 20 when she was born so I was never a huge Britney Spears fan but we need never forget that at one time she was a Mouseketeer back in the days when Disney-MGM Studios was a working production facility. So hit Hollywood Studios and relive those glory days and make a few new memories.

One of our questions in quick recall Saturday was about the artificial heart and on this day in 1982, the first permanent artificial heart was successfully implanted in Barney Clark. The Jarvic-7 heart kept Clark alive for 112 days and was a modern marvel of medicine and engineering. Now we all know that a dream is a wish your heart makes and…

Your best excuse is always: waiting for your dreams to come true.
