7 days and counting
Hard to believe it's only 7 days before the Broncos start the preseason schedule. This has always been one of my favorite times of the year. The football preview magazines are out, and I love to devour them. Camps are opening and the excitement of a new season is right around the corner. I love football. I grew up in west Texas, and football was pretty much the only game around. I'm looking forward to seeing how Gary Kubiak does with the Texans almost as much as seeing how the Broncos season will unfold. This cartoon was inspired by some signs around our newsroom. We have only one day left until we move into our new building at 101 W. Colfax. Today will be the last time I will draw in the old building and at the drawing board that I have created win, lose & Drew cartoons for 24 years. Monday, I'll be in a new building at a new drawing board and a much improved window view of Civic Center Park. Life is changing and it feels so great. In September, I'll hopefully be moving into a new home in another part of the metro area, having spent the last 18 years in Littleton. I recently remarried after losing my wife to cancer several years ago. The book of Ecclesiastes says there is a time for everything and a season for every thing. I have known, on a personal level, a time to mourn, having lost both my wife and father in just the past few years. Now is a time, it seems, for renewal. With these changes, I'm moving into a new phase. These moves will give me a fresh start and a chance to grow in new ways. I couldn't be more excited about the days ahead. If you've had some times in your life where you've experienced some great changes, I'd love for you to leave a comment. Or if it's just the Broncos season that has you revved up, please feel free to leave a note. I love the conversations that are part of this blog.
