Location: Okoboji, SD
Description: Continuing Ed event for healthcare professionals. Registration required.
Start Time: 8:30
Had a great time at this event today, even if I almost did have a heartattack when I arrived into Sioux Falls thinking that I should have flown into Sioux City instead because those were the driving directions that my office had given me. It was stressful and freaky for about 2 minutes while I tried to figure out where I was and where I was supposed to be. In the end, I was at the right place and two hours later, I was checking into Arrowwood Resort in Okoboji. It would have been a long drive except that I was fascinated by all those electrical windmill thingies. Almost drove off the road a couple of times from staring at them for too long – they’re huge!! Major distraction too. I kept thinking about alien abductions and bees in a cornfield…don’t ask me why. ANYway, that there was what I like to refer to as an ADD Moment – total detour from my original thought which was to say how much I enjoyed the event and meeting all the fine people who made it possible.
A huge thank you to Marilyn and Rosie for putting it all together and for having the faith to book someone based on a recommendation and no first-hand experience – I’m glad that you guys were so brave! Massive kudos to Brendan Frasier…oh wait! I meant Nate, who took care of all of my A/V needs, going above and beyond! (Nate, man, I’m going to be watching The Mummy tonight – you inspired me!) My gratitude also to Peg and Berny, who were amazingly efficient at my table – they sold everything out!! Speaking off: I’ve had the office add the bundle I made available today to the store. Twenty five bucks including shipping…and if you leave me a nice comment, I will throw in an additional print as a thank you gift for stopping by!
It is always a pleasure to address health professionals from all different discplines and today was no exception! I hope that you guys remember the encouragement and take it to heart. Life is all about making a difference and you all certainly do that! Keep on, keepin’ on!
