Food For Thought

That’s what most of my high school classmates wrote after they received their invitations to our class reunion this month. Last February, I sent the usual Valentines to over 70 classmates to remind them to write something to put in the annual newsletter I put together for them. About 15 of them still live in our hometown, several married to classmates, and a good many of them are the ones who have traditionally done the lion’s share of the work in planning our reunions at five year intervals.

I was in my parents’ garage helping them do a little spring cleaning.
Dad is out of the hospital after a long stay recovering from a fall that broke his hip. He was almost back to his old self when his heart started acting up, setting him back significantly. He gets around with a walker, but not very far or fast.

Last week, we looked at the regular season and talked about how good an all around player Matt Gatens was. This week we’ll look at the Big Ten Tournament, the NIT, returning players and the new recruits.
