Kentucky Morning
I'd intended to devote a page to Kentucky right after the University of Kentucky won the
NCAA Men's Basketball Championship but, as often happens, I got sidetracked.  Now,
since it's almost time for the Kentucky Derby, I offer this page in honor of both that
esteemed race and the Kentucky Wildcats, the winningest team in college basketball
history.  (Though it hurts the feelings of an LSU fan to admit such a thing.
Photos on this page were all taken in the beautiful Commonwealth of Kentucky.
History has demonstrated that the most notable winners usually encountered
heartbreaking obstacles before they triumphed.  They won because they
refused to become discouraged by their defeats.

I've made so many mistakes that if I don't make the same mistakes twice, we'll have

To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the esteem of honest critics
and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty and to find the best in others; to leave the world
a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one
life has breathed easier because you have lived.  This is to have lived a successful life.
