Just a tremendous day today, culminating a wonderful week of celebrations with the senior class of 2009, and now with my wonderful rising seniors, the class of 2010 (WE ARE ’10!!!).
Today was the Farewell Assembly, and I was shocked to receive the PTSA’s Commitment To Excellence Award for this year. Being honored is an absolute understatement. I don’t think I have ever been so overwhelmed with emotion and with surprise. I don’t know if any pictures exist of me receiving the award, but if I can find them, I’ll update this page and post them.
We just returned from my old friend’s liquor store, Swan Song Liquors, in Perry Hall. Remo and I were friends in high school, and we lost touch with each other over the years. Thank God for Facebook, the ever-reunion maker of long lost friends. We bought a bottle of Chocolate Zin from St. Michael’s Winery, among a few other things. It was great to see Remo and his wife Mary Kay, and we’ll be back. I’d much rather travel a few extra miles to support the small businesses than save a buck or two (if that) at the chains that drive out the smaller shops.
Here’s a pic of Remo and me at his store. I’m glad we’re back in touch with each other.
