1. Mike has wanted a Border Collie for some time now. He wanted a Frisbee dog and agility dog really-- not necessarily a working Border Collie.
2. When Mike was in high school there was a business card machine in a restaurant he and his friends hung out at. He made himself a business card that said Michael Akey, Shepherd.
3. One of Mike's first email addresses in high school was poultryman. He thought chickenman was funny but thought poultry was even funnier.
I remember Mike showing me that business card when we were dating and thought it was pretty goofy. It's in a line in some Chevy Chase movie-- could be Caddy Shack- I have no idea.
Did I ever imagine that he'd actually turn out to BE a SHEPHERD or the POULTRYMAN?
So that's my philosophical question of the day. Was it fate or can you go back in your life and always find 2-3 things that pointed you in the direction your life headed?
Wow-- lots out there on-line on Fate or Coincidence. If I find anything worth passing on, I'll link it in.
