Playing "Tag" is just not for kids...........

The fellows in the photo could have started a 50 year tradition by playing tag in the back yard.

This is a must read article stolen from the Wall Street Journal:

"Earlier this month, Brian Dennehy started a new job as chief marketing officer of Nordstrom Inc.  In his first week, he pulled aside a colleague to ask a question: How hard it is for a nonemployee to enter the building? Mr. Dennehy doesn't have a particular interest in corporate security. He just doesn't want to be "It. "Mr. Dennehy and nine of his friends have spent the past 23 years locked in a game of "Tag." It started in high school when they spent their morning break darting around the campus of Gonzaga Preparatory School in Spokane, Wash. Then they moved on—to college, careers, families and new cities. But because of a reunion, a contract and someone's unusual idea to stay in touch, tag keeps pulling them closer. Much closer."

I wish we would have been clever enough to start this 50+ years ago. Except I think I'd always be proclaimed "it" when I come to visit.

What a fun idea. It's always great to connect with old friends but this gives such a "randomness to the connections."

Just to see some of my ol' buddies who I haven't seen in years, I wouldn't mind being "it"
