  • not a joke just time to be a kid again!

    Last Thursday I was not working hard here at the HCMA office... this I admit. I was out "playing" with my daughter at a local water/amusement park. She won the tickets at a golf outing back in June (YES SHE REALLY WON THEM!)
    I took her on her 1st "big" rollar coaster...Yes you heard me I went on a coaster...an old "woody" with a rather small drop in relationship to the 210 foot drop on the REALLY big coaster!
    My point is it was fun to get out and play for the day! AND I did go on all the rides I wanted..I was careful to look at them and I knew what would make my heart race...so I avoided them... the rest were a BLAST!

    My point... Have some fun before the summer runs away!
