Walking The Dog in Longboat Key, Sarasota, Florida

Walking the dog in Longboat Key: Mike in Tucson

~ Walking the dog in Longboat Key, Sarasota, Florida ~

You can't do this in Tucson, Arizona!  I was taking an early morning walk with my three brothers along a bay in Longboat Key, and I saw something none of the four of us had seen in more than 45 years.

People were standing up in tiny watercraft, paddling across the water!

We five boys (we lost one of our gang three years ago) grew up in the rainforest in Suriname, South America.  It wasn't unusual to stand in a canoe.

I'd never seen anyone here in the States do this, not until this early morning's walk. 

Here's a photo from my childhood.  Look closely; the Indian standing in front of the canoe has a bow and arrow.  He's fishing.

Standing in a canoe: Suriname, SA circa 1963.  Mike in Tucson

When I returned to the United States at age 16, and wanted to stand up and paddle a canoe at camp, the counselors kept yelling for me to sit down.  "You'll capsize the canoe!"

There's a Wednesday morning business lesson here, and you don't have to look too far to find it.

I wish you much success in your real estate endeavors today!
