Since graduation, I've lived in Lincoln, Omaha, Great Falls, MT, Harlan, IA, back to Great Falls, then to Knoxville, TN and now in The Big Apple, on the upper east side. What a ride! I love visiting Lincoln, and often do since my younger bother still lives and teaches there. Recently all my sibs and I had a reunion back home and we spent a little time in the halls of NE. Wow! The memories! Thanks to the folks there who were so nice to let us roam the halls for a few minutes. We just needed the flavor again. It was sweet.
All The Best to the Rocket family! GO ROCKETS!
