We had a ball with my work colleagues Friday night; it is a real treat to be welcomed into someone’s home here and to meet the family! Pam Eddy and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves with Mike and Mai Murphy, their boys Sean and Patrick, and the soon-to-wed Brian and Theresa (Hedderman???? or perhaps Bowe???? Only time and a golf tournament will tell for certain). Regardless of uncertainty on the name front, the meal and the conversation were outstanding! I so enjoy spending time with the folks at this table.
By the way, Mike and Brian are my Fulbright hosts. Pam and I are Fulbright scholars; she worked as a Fulbright at DIT in 2009 and I have been since August 2012. Lots of brilliant people around the table below… my colleagues’ families are amazingly skilled, talented, and educated, and they are loads of fun to boot.
