We Interrupt the Currently Scheduled Program


This entry is not part of the countdown series. I just turned in the last paper of my 33 year pursuit of a bachelor’s degree. The actual commencement ceremony is tomorrow but I’m having a dinner party with family and friends tonight to celebrate the end of this long journey.

We’re drinking a few bottles of wine that I’ve been saving. Jon and I are making a rolled pork tenderloin roast, stuffed with mushrooms, rosemary, and cheese. We’re roasting some potatoes and service an arugula salad. The kids (by which I mean everyone in attendance) may also scarf a little housemade macaroni and cheese.

Cheers! And thanks to everyone for the support as I’ve struggled along this path.
