    Blog Break

    This will be my last posting for a couple of weeks. Not that I’ve run out of items to write about. You’ll be hearing a lot from me in the near future about the “We Day” event I attended yesterday and the potential ways that fraternals can partner with this unique organization to actually “grow younger.”

    yellow rose of Texas   But before that, my wife and I will be driving to Dallas for the wedding of our younger son. Should be quite an event and it will be nice to have an official “Texan” in the family.

    Following the wedding we’re taking a few extra days to wander back to Chicago through Arkansas and Missouri. We’ve never really explored that part of the country, so any suggestions for places to visit (i.e. “World’s Largest Ball of Yarn” attractions) would be appreciated.

    In the meantime, the Alliance staff will handle these blog postings and I’m hoping I don’t meet the fate of Wally Pipp ($5.00 to the first person who can tell me who he is) while I’m away.

    See you soon…jja

    1. Wally Pipp was the Yankees 1st basemen who was replaced by Lou Gehrig. If I remember he took a day, Lou Gehrig replaced him and Gehrig went on to set record for most consecutive games played.

      Joe, enjoy

    2. Congratulations and blessings on your family,

      Stan

    3. Have a great time in TX and congrats on your son’s wedding! Wally Pipp was the Yankees 1st baseman who was replaced by Lou Gehrig because he took the day off due to a headache. I don’t think you have to worry!

    4. In MIssouri you have many attractions near Branson, potential playoff baseball games in St. Louis, wine country near Hermann, and America’s Home Town, Hannibal MO, which is the home of Mark Twain. With many fun things all over the state.

    5. He was the ball player who was replaced by Lou Gehrig who then played in a record number of consecutive games

    6. I think he should be remembered just for having a great name.

    7. Did you know that Pipp was a ghost writer for Babe Ruth and wrote on the staff of Sports Illustrated and still holds the Yankee record for sacrifices in a single season?

    8. Joe:

      Nice Blog site. Congrats on your son’s wedding. Have a great trip!
