Ann Arbor

What an apt time to begin this blog!  Dad and I are in Ann Arbor, Michigan -- our first home as a family.  Today we went to the Institute building where we attended church and where I lived for a couple of weeks.  The exterior was exactly as we remembered it, but the interior had changed.  Mosher-Jordan Residence Hall where Dad lived for two years was disappointing because we couldn't visit his room.  Oddly enough, someone else was living in it! The kitchen where he ran the dish machine was, sadly,  no longer there.  As you know, Dad graduated from the School of Natural Resources, which has now added "and the Environment" to its official name.  We visited its home in The Samuel Trask Dana Building, and attended the annual SNRE Campfire, bringing chocolate chip picnic bars.  We won the alumni division of the annual log-sawing contest, with a time of 2 minutes, 58 second!.  Of course, we were the only alumni to enter the contest, but no matter.  We ended up with a better time than far younger folks.  

We did it!


  1. I love this!! I so wish I could have been there to see all of that stuff with you. I'm such a sucker for nostalgia. And I'm also so impressed by your log-sawing skills. You guys are awesome!

  2. Actually, we were impressed too -- as well as surprised.
