Many of you know I’m a HUGE football fan so it’s only right that my bucket list includes attending games at some of our Nation’s top venues.  I remember watching Oregon during the Akili Smith days and as of late, their uniforms are out of this world so Autzen Stadium was a must.  I’m a big USC fan as well so naturally that’s the game I picked to see. As an added bonus, Candice loves football so she was down for the trip!

I remember one of the last conversations I had with my Dad before he passed.  He told me to “Work hard but remember to have fun, take trips, goof off and just enjoy life.”  This was weird coming from him because he was always the “show up early, work hard, stay late, save and get ahead” type of guy.  In regards to his health, he knew he didn’t have much time left but he made a point to say this to me.  Some days I get “jokingly” mad when I think about it because he didn’t tell me what was coming, but I get it.  He’s was just a selfless guy that didn’t want me worrying, so I gotta respect that.

Truly wasn’t my intention to get dark with this post but as I was writing, it just came out.  Hopefully it reaches anyone that needed to see it.  Take vacations people, you deserve it.  If you can’t afford to travel, take a few days off and explore your city, do the touristy things that locals often ignore.

Ya’ll keep living! – Bob
