My good friend (and benefactor) always planned vacation time, and took his son to Florida. At Spring Training Time, I think of them!

This was a family tradition — a guy thing. I know that they both looked forward to it, basked in the time there, remembered it fondly forever.

Time passes, boys grow into men. My friend’s boy followed him into the family trade — but not with his Dad. Probably a wise decision — that kinda arrangement can get intense! They still did whatever they had to do, to get their spring trip together. Eventually, the son got a great professional opportunity and moved to another city.

It’s Spring Training Time — can they still go? Can they still make it happen? Hope so! So hope so!
