4 Spring to a Break

Imagine, if you will, four college friends. All are successful, each with individual talents. Each is fun loving, bright, ambitious and very well mannered, even around their elders like me. They share a love of all things Wisconsin and cheered as the badgers recently took down their Kentucky rivals. In addition, they share a common love of music. No, they are not rappers or leftovers from a past hair-band era. Our musical friends are, dare I say, far more talented. They have all been part of the award winning A Cappella singing group, Fundamentally Sound.

The harsh Wisconsin winter finally subsided enough to allow our nephew Vinnie, and three of his good friends, to fold themselves in a single small car for their Spring Break 2015 Adventure! With plenty capable drivers on board, they quickly drove to the promised land – a land of sun, sand and surf – South Florida! Over their almost week-long foray into the paradise we call home, they sunned on the beach, walked in the sand, kayaked among alligators, and most importantly, lived a little of the SoBe (South Beach) nightlife.  In short, they generally had a great time! We were excited to spend a few precious moments with such wonderful young men.  After we said our good-byes and they once again headed to the northern tundra, I am happy to say that I would call them each my friend.

Here’s to celebrating Spring Break, even if we are a few years past our 20’s. And most importantly, here’s to spending time with wonderful family members and the fun people they add to our lives!

Check out Fundamentally Sound’s recent video (picked up by Sports Illustrated) with star Wisconsin basketball star Frank Kaminsky. Vinnie is screen right with the laptop and David faces off with Frank!  http://bit.ly/1xEha7l

The Joker is Wildly Wet


The Joker is Wet - Chip Bunnell Photography

A deck has 52 unique, identifiable cards. Kings, Crazy 8s, a few Deuces and even a Queen of Hearts. Each has their place, but the most wile isn’t part of the 52. Like Batman’s nemeses, the one to really watch is the Joker!

Rather than flying through the air, this joker took to the water to play her tricks below the waves. Laura’s coy smile lures all in to her circle where light-hearted hijinx can be played on the unsuspecting. Her captivating gaze makes all want to join in the fun!
