I went to my college homecoming today. I spent some time with 3 women I knew in college. I realized, as I was driving home, that all 4 of us have the same hair style we had in college. Our styles are very different, but they are identical to what we had 30+ years ago. It was really good to see them, and to be back on campus.
The campus has changed since I graduated. It is a very different place. They've gone from 3 dining halls to 1. They recently remodeled my favorite dining room, and I think it lost some of its coziness. The house I lived in senior year has been torn down. It was a beautiful day. I managed to find a few things I could eat at the lunch on the quad. I think the band was better 30+ years ago when I was in it. I understand that enrollment is down over all, which is sad. I bought a lanyard for my church and pantry keys. It replaces one I got at a conference at another college I've been using for a number of years.
Perhaps the best thing is that Daughter didn't call and bug me all day. That was truly a gift. She's here now, as I picked her up this evening.
It was a very pleasant day.
