To author a best-selling book! One day Ike would like to start playing golf. One day, he will sky-dive and fly in a fighter jet. One day he will take his wife, Robin, to Malta.
I would start my day by sleeping in a little later than normal, reading a couple of newspapers, then go to breakfast with Robin and Abigail. Then go shopping with them, catch a movie, and then stop by Houston’s on the way home for dinner. Then kick back with a good book, great music, and a legal pad to take notes on good ideas. Then maybe surf the Internet for new ideas and information (Ike is an information junkie.)
