How does one misplace an entire season? From Halloween to New Year’s and then some seems to be gone — one blur of activity, then illness, then celebration, then a new era is upon us. The missing time also coincides with the time that Laura’s mother was with us. I mean to draw no parallels … Continue reading
Hard to believe another month has come and gone. I somehow managed to forget Mom’s birthday last Friday during all the homecoming stuff. Oh well. I called to beg forgiveness. I don’t think she will disown me. We got a major surprise on Monday. Our superintendent, Sid Crumpton, announced that he is retiring effective December 31. … Continue reading Halloween – booo!
My how quickly the years have passed… This weekend was my 20th reunion at Furman. I had lots of conflicting thoughts as to how I wanted to spend the weekend. Should I spend the 100 bucks for reunion dinner at the Commerce Club with people I may or may not want to see, or do … Continue reading Furman 20th
NOTE: This restaurant is now closed Happy Birthday to Laura! We had a nice birthday meal at La Boheme this evening. Seated at the table next to ours were Charlotte and Lindsey Smith, retired music faculty from Furman. I caught myself trying to be on my best behaviour. Amazing how they can have that effect … Continue reading La Boheme
My last day in this hell hole. Did I say I hate Myrtle Beach? Once again, I’m at my favorite Greek breakfast nook. It’s relatively cheap, and the service is good. How about that – a geek at a Greek restaurant. Last night we went to the CSI bash at House of Blues. I actually … Continue reading Edtech 2003 2
Once again, I’m sitting in the restaurant, acting like a geek. I’m also noticing that my Palm batteries are getting lower and I didn’t bring a charger. I’m just hoping it holds out until tomorrow. Last night I stood up a free dinner with a vendor, Trillion, to eat with my tech team. Most of … Continue reading Edtech-2003
OK, I’ve just identified myself as a geek. I’ve opened up my keyboard to update this blog in a pancake house in Myrtle Beach. September just disappeared on me. It marked the start of Furman football games, cooler temperatures, awful new TV shows, and a deluge of leaves. We still haven’t gotten everything thing cleaned … Continue reading Edtech 2003 3
I haven’t even gotten all the leaves from last fall raked, and the new deluge has started. The change in season also means that it’s football time. We had our first home game against Elon on Saturday. This is the earliest game on record, partly since Labor Day is as early as it can get. … Continue reading It’s September.
I was almost arrested as a terrorist this morning. I was at the airport in the waiting area outside the security area waiting for Laura’s flight to get in. Since I had a few minutes, I pulled out my Palm Pilot and keyboard and started typing some notes for my tech meeting. I got up … Continue reading Busted for being a Geek…
NOTE: This restaurant is now closed August 28 – I’m sitting outside of the Bourbon Street Bordello. Not in the Big Easy, but in lovely downtown Greenville. It isn’t a real bordello, in the commonly accepted sense of the word, but a New Orleans-themed restaurant that used to be called Betty Pearle’s Bordello. I had … Continue reading Bourbon Street Bordello
