Yes, I did say entertaining. This may surprise many of you, if you have only experienced long and boring, lofty intellectual speeches full of self-importance and advice. Last year's keynote address at my daughter's graduation was anything but!
Our key note speaker was an alumni of the high school. I had to look up his name before writing this, because we all just referred to him as "the bear guy." Casey Anderson, "the bear guy," grew up in Montana, and is now an author, wildlife naturalist, actor, National Geographic TV host - and best friend to Brutus the Bear. There was much speculation leading up to the ceremony as to whether Brutus would accompany him - and many of us were disappointed that he did not.

The screen-saver I keep on my phone is a quote. Not something said by Casey Anderson, but I think he would approve:
“The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.”
Congratulations Graduates, 2014.
