Eugene, Oregon

Had lunch at the Starbuck’s on 13th Avenue at the opposite corner of “O”- The Duck Store.

Eugene, Oregon, besides being home to the University of Oregon, is also known as Track Town USA.

After lunch and a quick visit to the bookstore for a “Stop Pre” t-shirt, it was off to Hayward Field.

As soon as I stepped onto the track, a siren blared from the firehouse across the street. When my son and I hear a siren, without fail, we say a prayer for the driver, the helpers, and the family or families that are involved.

It was then the realization became conscious, I hadn’t started the day, in my hotel room, on my knees. Right there on the spot, I got down on my knees (in Lane 8 actually) and said the “morning” prayers.

Funny how a 20-hour travel day can throw you a curve. Funny how just abut anything can throw you a curve. Batter up.

And now for something completely different

jeff noel.org proudly offers something completely different than the past nine days.

It’s still about Florida birds, but completely different.

By the way, no You Tube video of Little Dovey yesterday. That was done on purpose.

Just wanted to take a break and see what happens.

Sometimes, little changes can make a big difference. The difference can be positive or not positive. This is why humans have a tough time with life. We don’t want to fail, so we don’t do anything.

Like I always say, “I’d rather try and fail, than not ry at all”. Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
