Our last student day was Tuesday, and our turn-in-your-key day was Thursday.  I guess the school calendar shows this as a holiday weekend for the sake of the year-round employees.

Memorial Day is tomorrow.  I suppose I’ll relax like most folks, but my mind can’t help but drift for a moment toward a friend that I lost on November 29, 2003.  I was well into my first real semester of college as I was retiring from the Army; he was in a convoy in Iraq.

Thank you, Tony.
