Sunshine Family News
June 9, 2008 Edition

A Note From Randal 

I was able to do some things around my parent’s house that will be a big help to them.  Additionally, I was able to see lots of family and my high school friends that I still keep in contact with.  I even was able to play some tennis and claim my first one set victory ever, over my son’s, great tennis playing friend, Jake.  I asked how fast he served and he said it was in excess of 100 mph.  Needless to say, he aced me many times because of that speed.  I have been elated ever since.

One of the highlights was my high school friend, Kim Parrish, and  I went back to our old Alma Mater, Oklahoma State University, and walked the campus and saw the new changes that have been brought about.  This was particularly appealing to me because I hadn’t been back to OSU for over 30 years.  It has really changed since I was last there.  During my time in college I had a scholarship as an student athletic trainer so I lived and traveled with the football and wrestling team.  So I was particularly interested in all the athletic department changes and the old locations I once worked.

Kim wrote a book on the unsurpassed wrestling season called "Cowboy Up".  I wrote a review on it that you can read.

If you like inspiring books based on real life events this is one you might want to consider.  Having been the trainer for the wrestlers I really appreciated Kim’s writing style and how it paints a picture that you can almost see through the book pages.

Remember to take the Nature’s Sunshine survey. 

Donna and I appreciate all you do and hope your summer goes well for you.

Until next time,
