Anyone that needs inspiration to live a full life has to keep this picture in mind.  Howard and Jean also bike with their family to town from the resort every morning while on vacation for breakfast at the Island Cafe.  Jean’s new knee has slowed her down a little this year and she drives to Blue Lake Road to pick up the bike trail there.  Howard gave his family and all of us something to shoot for.  Here is to water skiing again at 79 and beyond!
