Woke up as usual 3:30am Thursday morning, worked all day, came home, helped pack and arrange, left home about 8pm, flew all night, landed near Hartford, CT, drove around 4-5 hours to Middlebury, VT, checked in, showered, attended my daughter's graduation ceremony, walked around the 32478503984-acre campus, returned to the B&B, went to bed, slept a little longer than usual (6.5 hours instead of <6).
And I feel great!
So it's been a whirlwind, but all-good. We read all about threatening thunderstorms, and feared a flight would be delay. As you can see, delay would have been disastrous: missing the ceremony. I wasn't able to get Thursday off; my work was generous to let me have Friday (short-staffed). So it was a tight schedule, ad we're grateful to God that we made it at all.
So now my oldest and only daughter has a Master's in French from Middlebury. Great job, Rachael. We're very proud of her and her dogged, hard work. Now we're off to tour the area for a few days. I think we go to Fort Ticonderoga today. Hope they give us a pencil or something.
And Dunkin' Donuts! They actually have them out here. Had my first coffee in too long from a DD, and dude, it was good.
What a beautiful area it is: green, rolling hills; huge rivers, streams. Would love to see Fall colors. We did a too-quick walk-through of the Yankee candle store. Perhaps I'll post some pix later.
And I just caught up on my Bible reading. Man, you miss one day with that For the Love of God schedule, and you've got some serious catching-up to do.
