WOW.

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.

  2. Congratulations my friend!! Long overdue and well deserved. I’m just catching up after my similar week from hell schedule. I’m enjoying your daily posting and thinking about joining you somehow in this 365 thing. Right now I’m completely lost in the best book I’ve read in a long time: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. By a Swedish writer who wrote a trilogy, then died while working on a fourth. This is the first. Almost done. Staying up too late to read and not processing or posting photos, but oh well.
