Thank you to all who helped make the party go off,and to the Wicked Smart Horn Band for providing the music on Saturday. My wife bought a CD, and I think got it autographed. It was the first chance for us to dance together all summer. Usually I'm playing. She and I had the best time. She felt at home, and although not an alumni, she was recognized way more often than I. Someone asked her if she was in the movies or TV. The price of my soul wouldn't buy as good a compliment.
What they did to the campus sucked at first glance. It magnified the dreaminess of my memories of Franconia because Franconia wasn't there. Maybe it gets better if you own a chunk of the hill.
But, splendid over all. And at the night's end, an old friend had fine whiskey and fine reminisces.
Best wishes from Susan and me to everyone, I hope the feeling lingers.
