A 25th Anniversary

It was 25 years ago this weekend that Laura and I met. Hard to believe how fast time flies. It was Furman Homecoming Friday night, and we were both there under unusual circumstances. Here’s the story… The Friday night of Homecoming Weekend students begin constructing floats on the mall. Well, not really “floats” in the … Continue reading A 25th Anniversary

Marching Band Season

As my friend Duck Hunter pointed out on his blog, not only is it football season, but it’s also marching band season. The Furman Band has really been sounding good the last several years, and this year continues this trend.

There were weeds everywhere and the place looked badly overgrown. This was most noticeable around several of the park benches and picnic tables around the lake. Furman usually keeps immaculate grounds. Not a blade … Continue reading Sustainability, Greenability, and Misunderstandings

Disc Golf at Furman

Back last spring Furman University put up an official disc golf course. Sunday was a beautiful (albeit, hot) day, so I decided to spend the afternoon playing a round. Background As a student here a quarter of a century ago we played quite a lot of Frisbee golf. We used standard-sized Frisbees (there was no … Continue reading Disc Golf at Furman
