I do love surprises. Everything I like, I like even better when it’s a surprise. Last Friday, waiting for my passengers to gather for the trip up to Gainesville, I noticed a couple text messages from my brother Gary. He was actually in Tampa inquiring whether we could get together the next day. My weekend away was already keeping me from a couple fun things happening at home and this would have been the third “not to miss” thing that I would be missing. Fortunately we figured out a way to get together for supper since that was about the time we were planning to go through Tampa. Gary’s friend Gus dropped him off at the restaurant where we were waiting and we had a short visit over a good meal. We had another vet student along with us, Kevin, and he was kind enough to take this picture of us as we blocked traffic out in the parking lot afterwards.
