The fist great thing is that my daughter, Megan, completed a PhD in Clinical Counseling. It really is an awesome accomplishment, and I am very proud! Here she is at graduation with me and my parents. She will be teaching at Heidelberg University (Tiffin, OH, not Germany) starting this Fall. I can’t tell you how much it warms my heart to know the world is a better place because of my children. I know I’m a biased observer, but they are really great!
The next is merely “good” in comparison to Megan’s graduation, but it was fun. I had a good friend staying in Greensboro for a couple of days on business. The first night, we caught dinner at a wonderful restaurant, the Green Valley Grill, at the O’Henry Hotel. BTW, we went there on the recommendation of a good blog friend of mine. It’s nice to know people in ePlaces. Here’s a picture of the cool outdoor terrace at the Green Valley Grill.
The next night, which was a beautiful spring/summer night, we caught a Greensboro Grasshoppers baseball game.
It was fun actually doing something in my new locale! I have been working in nearby Winston-Salem since Jan 1, but leave to go back to Toledo right after my working stints. This was actually the first time I have done anything outside of work.
Also great is spending time with my son, Kevin. I picked him up at Detroit Metro airport after a trip to Big Sky, Montana. I love picking up my kids at the airport because it gives us some solid time to just sit and chat on the ride home, one on one.
Here’s Kevin and me, while driving back from the airport. I was taking the picture with my left hand, working the radio with my right, driving with my thigh, while looking at his pictures on his camera. Hey! Did you hear about the laws they are trying to pass about not allowing cell phones while driving!?! What!?!
