9. Brent is in Kentucky with one of his students at a conference. There, he happened to discover that one of the researchers used to work in the same lab he did in the late 90s. That guy's boss happened to work with his old boss and his PhD mentor at another time. The spinal cord injury group of scientists is tight knit. I think it was fun for him to be back with them again.
10. We're going to be going on some Oklahoma adventures and some Dallas ones too this week. Anyone have recommendations in Southern Oklahoma or Dallas? So far, during our Oklahoma adventure, we're planning on -- the Stratford Peach Festival, The Toy & Action Figure Museum, Bedre Chocolate Factory, The GW Zoo (not related to "my" GW), Turner Falls, and probably some wanderings in Chickasaw Country including the heritage center and national park/lake. I've made no similar plans for Dallas yet so send some ideas our way. We'll be staying with friends near the airport if that helps.
I hope you are having a wonderful summer!
