Week 11: Books, Books, Books

I love books. I have loved them my entire life. For me, they are a magic portal into times long ago, and galaxies far, far away. However, I didn’t know anything about managing a bookstore, which had always been a high on my list of future careers. Thankfully, today I received the privilege of meeting with Gene Browning, manager of White Wing bookstore and businessman extraordinaire.

If my Dad had told me that I would be meeting with a man who: is an ex-marine used to have a really bad temper could at one time bench press 425 pounds I would have turned tail and ran. However, because God worked a miracle in his life, I actually had a very pleasant day with Bill Stockham.

Week 7: Down… Set… HUT!

If I asked ten average rabid football fans if they would like to spend a day with a coach who had worked on a high school and collegiate level for 44 years, probably all ten would have said yes, and they might be drooling.
