These moments we're left with
In the spring of 1999, as I was frantically trying to secure tickets for the Final Four in Tampa, I was concurrently bidding on a boat. I had looked at the boat before leaving town and had set a limit for my proxy bidder. When I learned I was the high bidder, I wasn't sure if I was the winner or the loser!
This is the story of that boat and the ten great summers on Lake Francis Case on the Missouri River that followed.
