Sorry for my tardiness in writing. Things have been crazy here. My daughter Ileana graduated from Medical University of South Carolina Medical School on Friday the 15 of May and we had a houseful of company, mainly relatives, which was wonderful, but I had to go back to work to recover. Ileana’s great uncle was having his 50th anniversary of his graduation from MUSC this year as well, so it was a double celebration. Ileana is now in Athens, Greece,with two women friends before she begins her three years of medical residency in Internal Medicine here at MUSC.
And, not to leave my son Raymond,and his wife, Lindsay, and grandson Trifon (he is nearly 16 months old and talking up a storm — can even say grandmother in Greek — yiayia), are visiting for the Memorial Day weekend. Trifon is taking a nap right now so I am able to get some time on the computer.
Meanwhile back at the Library, the budget looks the same but maybe slightly better. Fingers crossed.
Also, be glad that you are not visiting Charleston right now. The weather has been cold and rainy. I mean, it was 64 degrees (the high) the middle of this week. Must be some sort of record! The good news is that we are getting rain which we really need but the beaches are not the best place to be in this kind of weather.
Plus, I saw that Savannah has now been voted the most hospitable city. Over Charleston which has won for many years. I wonder if it’s the weather?
