My Sabbatical

My son Tre is getting married to Jennifer on the 21st of this month and I have been in Gainesville Florida since the 13th for the wedding.  I will be returning to Houston on the 24th or 25th.

We are packing a lot of “stuff” into each day here, and having lots of fun with my kids and granddaughter Mia (I make her call me “Uncle” Bill…hahaha).  Since I don’t see my kids often, when I visit them like this I have to work hard to embarrass them as much as possible because I may not have another chance for a year or so…hahaha.

I graduated from the University of Florida so enjoying visiting old friends and co-workers in the departments of Anatomy & Cell Biology, Pathology, Diagnostic Histology Referral Laboratories, Florida State Anatomical Director’s Office, Environmental Sciences & Engineering Diagnostic Electron Microscopy Referral Lab, and BurgerKing (never worked there but did eat there often when I was a student here).  The Medical Center is a sprawling complex and has changed a lot since I was here last, but so far I have not gotten lost, wandering around looking up friends from the past.

trailbee, not sure which comment I didn't get?  But because of the “whirlwind” tour, I am only checking in to my laptop every few days.  I probably won’t have the time to post another serious blog until I get back to Houston.  I certainly will post a couple of wedding pics – I am literally taking more than 1000 pics here with my new camera.


  1. This is not a serious post? Well, shame on you! How wonderful that you can be there, embarrass your kids and see old friends. Note the changes, at least men don't get as many wrinkles as we do as we get older ... hahaha! Looking forward to seeing your heart when you are ready.

  2. Thats one of my shortcomings - didn't you notice my heart is always out there, whether I am ready or not!.....hahaha.
