October 17, 2016

Life is too short to be bored by dinner….


This is a week of recovery.  Last weekend we drove to Ohio to attend the 50th anniversary of my graduation from Marietta College.  This weekend also was the inauguration of Dr. William Rudd as the new president.
A dear friend of mine talked me into working on “The Committee”.  I was skeptical at first, but as my husband said, “you can’t say no to Chris”.  And I am ever so glad that I did.
The work on the committee was a fair bit of work, but it was a wonderful experience as I came across and connected with so many names from so long ago. Once there, it was as though we had never left – except of course for the gray hair, the extra pounds and the comfortable shoes.
We were, and still are, a great group of people. I am privileged to be a part of it.
