fter a lifetime of doing this and that, going here and there and just plain burning the candle at both ends, I feel like sitting down for a while. But I’m not at all disappointed as my status in life has been raised to the next level. I have recently been promoted to the position of “Chief Assistant Gardener” with an internship under the authority of “The Armchair Gardener”, who also happens to be my wife of 44 years. And I think we make a pretty good team. She has an almost encyclopedic knowledge of trees and shrubs, and especially flowers, while I’m real good at digging a hole. At least I thought I was until I was told there are different kinds of holes for different plants. (Sorry, I thought a hole was just that – a hole in the ground.) Anyway, my new position is not so much a passion for gardening as it is learning how to take time to enjoy simple things. A plant will not be rushed, so I’m having to learn patience. And along with patience has come a new contentment which is somewhat foreign to me. Most of my life has been an exercise in “Chasing the Wind”, going from one “adventure” to another, doing it as hard as I could. I raced sports cars for ten years and rode motorcycles, on and off, for over 50. I’ve captained a sailing vessel in the ocean as well as competing in sailboat races in large lakes. And I have enjoyed a lot of (too many, in fact) interesting automobiles and have restored a few classics. And with all that I had a family and was trying to build a business. You can understand why I want to sit down for a while. These things, however, (my family notwithstanding) have been “empty pursuits”. I’m feeling a little older now and without the inexhaustible energy I once had, and much of my disposable income has been “disposed of”. So I’m now just beginning to learn how to be content where I am and with what I have. Gardening is inexpensive, allows me fresh air and exercise, teaches me patience and certainly makes my yard look better. And it’s a hobby which the Armchair Gardener and I can enjoy together, perhaps for the first time in 44 years. There is nothing wrong with wanting more than we have – going to the next level, financially or intellectually, or pursuing our dreams and goals. But, perhaps contentment is being happy where we are until we get to where we want to be. In Philippians, Paul says, “I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and all circumstances, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.” And he goes on to say, “I can do all this through Him who gives me strength.” Perhaps Paul was a gardener.

Post Script: I certainly can’t call myself a gardener. I’m still just a weed puller and hole digger. But I was so proud of “my” first bloom last week, I took a picture of it. I’m also learning by experience. When I accidentally pull a plant apart thinking it’s a weed, I pull up the whole plant and throw it away, thereby destroying all evidence of the mistake! That’s cause I’m a smart gardener.

Gary Sikes With Mid-Summer coming up and the temps rising, so is the hype about who is going to be the team to beat the Crimson Tide of Alabama this year. We may have the sleeper in the SEC East in the Georgia Bulldogs. Things are quietly going about business in the Athens camp as head coach Mark Richt is getting his group together for the Summer practice sessions and the Fall Campaign. The Bulldogs just may have the most potent offense they have had in the past several years. With 2 of the best backs in Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall the young offense will have time to develop and get up to speed. These 2 young men will, in my opinion, both be in the running for the Heisman trophy before they finish at UGA. With the backfield set, coach Richt does not have to worry about his quarterback position as Aaron Murray made his decision to stay at Georgia vs declaring for the NFL draft early. These are some of the factors which lead me to think that the Dawgs are going to be hard to keep out of the end zone this year. On the flip side of the line I am not so sure. When a defense loses players like Ogletree, Jones, and the huge nose tackle Jennings they

tend to take more time circling the wagons than the offense does. However we will know soon enough as the Georgia Dogs travel to Death Valley Jr. to be hosted by the Tigers of Clemson. The Tigers did not lose the talent and speed they are known for and they will have a healthy receiver in Watkins back. (Arguably the best wide-out in college football.) Plus the strong running and passing quarterback Tajh Boyd will be on the field for the Tigers as well. The environment the Dogs are riding into will be hostile and un-friendly so we can look for them to be tested early in the season, the first game in fact. August 31st is when the Bulldogs will make the trek from Athens to Clemson. And to throw mud in the eyes, then they will have to face the old ball coach Steve Spurrier and the South Carolina Gamecocks. If this Georgia teams gets through the first 4 games without a loss, then we just may have the team which can take the SEC title away from the Tide of Alabama. Right now, I don’t see any team in the West that can knock them off. But who knows, that is why they line up and play the game, time will tell.
