Many years ago, when I was in training at Keesler AFB, we had exercise time each morning.
We had to complete 4 exercises and run a mile in under 15 min.
For most of us, it was relatively easy.
I was finished in under 9 minutes each day.

However, there was ONE man who beat me on the mile run EVERY day!
Finally, on the last day, I determined to outrun him.
I strained with every nerve.
Just as we finished the 3rd lap, I put all I had into it!

Forty by Fives

February 20 of next month will mark the fortieth anniversary of my liscensure as a pharmacist. I’ve been counting tablets and capsules by fives, for four decades.Counting Tray

I earned a B.S. in pharmacy at Northeast Louisiana University [now known as the University of Louisiana–Monroe] and graduated in December of 1974.

It’s been an interesting forty years, including a seven year hiatus in which I left pharmacy for Dale Carnegie Training and New York Life. I returned to pharmacy in 1992.  For “About Me” descriptions in the social media, this is what I list: “Husband, father, grandfather, pharmacist, photographer, and published author.”

Over the next twelve months I’ll post a few blogs with reflections on my career along with some guest blogs by other pharmacists and health care folks I’ve met along the way. In addition, there will be a few blogs to chronicle the my evolution from small town farm boy to small town pharmacist.

Maybe someone will find them of interest.
