I’ll be honest with you, I wasn’t really too enthusiastic about coming back to work this week. I kind of moped around a little and even toyed with the idea of going back to my office at home and taking a nap in the comfy chair. Then I noticed a small package that had arrived while I was gone. When I open it my whole attitude changed. The contents were absolutely delightful. Check this out:
That is an official Rice Bowling Team shirt from 1956, in mint condition too! It’s the very first Rice bowling shirt we’ve ever gotten and it belonged to Robert Karnei, Jr. ’56. If that doesn’t turn your frown upside down, I don’t know what will.
Here’s young Mr. Karnei as a Rice senior. He definitely looks like he could pick up a 7 – 10 split.
There was also a charming letter from Mrs. Karnei in the package:
I can’t help but notice that she never says if she told him that she was sending in his old bowling shirt.
