University of Kentucky

October 28th, 2009


On the way to my favorite spot on campus I saw an area with a lot of students, so I thought, “what the heck,” and I parked and got out of the bus.  It must have been a change of class time, I spoke to about 40-50 students in about 15 minutes then everyone seemed to disappear.

I drove to my favorite spot on campus, Bogart was wanting to get back out of the bus so I thought it would be a good time to take him for a walk, so I left about 100 stickers at the bus and went for some exercise.  I might have only walked a mile, but the way Bogart was racing around at the end of the leash, I think he went triple that.  The squirrels were driving him nutty. Hehe.   It looked to me that once the squirrel commander figured out Bogie was on a leash, he ordered all of them to taunt him.  Poor little guy.  Time to go.  When I got back to the bus, all the stickers were gone.  That’s good.

This is a beautiful school, a great campus, I’d love to stay longer, but I must keep going.  I think I was on borrowed time as far as the bus was concerned anyway. Thank you to Megan and Scott for a great article in the Kernel.

I got a great email from Samantha, a nursing student, she and some of her friends read the article in the Kernel about One Million Acts of Kindness and they discussed how nursing and kindness fit well together, and I agree. Samantha said she was sorry to have missed The Kindness Bus and agreed to pass fifty stickers out to friends on campus which I mailed to her. Later, I received an email from Linda who lives in Oregon.  She heard about the Kindness Project and she said she is on a similar path.  Her dad passed away recently and she has decided to honor him by performing 1000 mitzvahs, or acts of kindness.  They are listed on her web site,  My favorite is mitzvah  #640.  On to Eastern Kentucky University

    It was so great to speak with you today, Bob. Thanks for your call. I had to go back to my blog and find Mitzvah #640. I nodded in agreement with you. Asking forgiveness when he have behaved badly as I had with this gym employee can be humbling but very rewarding. Make it a wonderful week and keep in touch on your journey!

  2. This is really interesting. This is one of the reasons that I love surfing. You’ll never know what you’ll find.
