Jonathon and I attended the, Polar Plunge, which raises funds for the Special Olympics, at SIUC.
Having been an employee of the Physical Plant for over 32 years…I still have a great affinity for the organization that afforded me so many opportunities.
I think that the PSO Director, Brad Dillard, is the finest team leader that I have had the opportunity to know…and that, period of time is, now over 40 years!
This year is especially significant to me, as my friend, Elizabeth, who I, initially hired …many years ago….was, once again, participating in the event…even after undergoing, significant challenges, over the past year.
Elizabeth has an indomitable spirit!
I thought that I would get a little closer to the, plunge action, this year and I saw a nice and close spot that was on the edge of the lake.
I noticed that there were several people taking photos on both my left and right…and so I, gingerly, stepped on the large stones…and began to take photos of what is a, perhaps, a minute event. I could hear shouting in the background, and when I looked around a lady, screamed at me to, move!
My apologies to the upset photographer…as it was clear to me that she could not tolerate a giant…even a, stooping one.
Next year I will bring my camera with the zoom!
