“Hope For The Best And Plan For The Worst”

You hear that a lot in South Florida every hurricane season.  It, like most slogans and sound bites, is meant for people with simple minds and simple plans.  Since “The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry”poem & translation, real-life planners and leaders need to do more than just hope.  They should routinely have backup plans allowing for success as well as initial failure, and they regularly update those plans as situations unfold.

With that in mind, we just applied for enough art festivals to finish up the season, even as we contemplate the need to cancel another festival next week (this morning’s surgery went pretty well, but it’s too early to know how long the recovery will take).  Stay tuned.

Although I grew up in Garden Grove, California, I have lived here in South Miami longer than I've lived anywhere else in the world. I've been married to my wonderful wife, Nancy, longer than I was ever without her. We were both teachers. Nancy recently retired after 40 years. I have also spent time as an officer in the Coast Guard, a commercial property appraiser, and an electrical engineering student. Now I'm technical support for Bee Happy Graphics. That means I handle this blog, our web page, and all E-mail, I do all post-processing and printing of the images, I cut mats and glass and frames. If you have a technical question, I would be the one trying to answer it.

Your "two cents worth" is welcome (but I don't give change).
