My earlier post told of catching up with Glenn at Daytona Beach. As Paul Harvey would say, "And now the rest of the story."
It was just about this spot where Glenn took my photo with the rainbow in my hand. The other end of the rainbow (in the middle of the shot). That’s not why this photo matters, however.
Look to the right on the photo and you’ll see two red and white "cranes" protruding into the air with a small black dot suspended in mid-air between them. That, my friends, is The Sling Shot.
Glenn said to me, "One time in my life, I would like to do something like that before I die." Oh my gosh, that’s all I needed to hear. "Let’s do it then, Glenn," I said. It is like the movie, The Bucket List, grab opportunities when you can. And so on June 24, 2008 around 7:30 PM, Glenn scratched one item off of his "Bucket List." What a privilege to be able to participate in such a simple request.
What about you? Do you have a bucket list – a list of things you would like to do, see, achieve before you die? Who do you know that has a dream that you can contribute to making it happen? Seize the moment and give it your best shot!
