Oops They Did It Again …

It’s been a busy couple of weeks in the Felix household and the coming months look like they will be busy as well.
My personal highlight (you’ll have to indulge me here) was being installed as the President of the South Florida Healthcare Executive Forum (SFHEF), an amazing organization dedicated to providing educational and networking opportunities for the professional development of South Florida healthcare execs. It’s been a decade since I last held the position of President and for some reason, the SFHEF members decided to give this old guy another shot. I like to think they couldn’t resist what little pepper and salt hair I have left, although Carol is quick to point out the possibility I was the only who raised my hand! Or perhaps it was my imminent birthday and the SFHEF Board just figured it was cheaper to make me President than give me a birthday gift?
Carol’s greatest fear, of course, is my already sizable ego not to mention my tendency to lapse into what she likes to call the “presidential” syndrome — thinking the world actually does revolve around me.
But even more exciting than my installation, my Chief of Staff (Carol) actually gave me the nod to purchase new computers for the office! So I’ve spent several days drooling over different configurations, numbers of gigs, and screen sizes all while keeping our budget in mind (of course, actually it’s Carol’s budget!) And since she firmly believes a legal pad and abacus can solve any problem, this purchase may take a while. Stay tuned …
Now you’ll have to excuse me, the First Lady wants me to walk the First Dog.
