Day 248, University of Delaware

Go Fighting Blue Hens!  I am so glad Maureen and Nancy both talked Dan into driving down to University of Delaware! I could not convince him, but they did, thank you both very much!

It was only 44 miles down back roads from our campsite, and I was going to take the kids on my own if Dan wanted a day off. He reconsidered, so we all piled in.  The drive was beautiful!  Green, our favorite.

We happened to drive right by my old dorm area, and I recognized it, so we pulled in. They have replaced our ugly, concrete dorm with 4 beautiful high rises. Of course! I leave and they build nice rooms! I bet they even get hot water! I took a few pictures, reminisced about the excellent stromboli Linda and I ate, and we went to find the visitor center. It was new, too, of course, and not exactly where I left it 30 years before.

We walked around the campus for a couple hours, and I couldn’t talk either of the kids into coming to college here. It just wasn’t doing anything for either of them, and the fact that I kept telling them silly stories probably didn’t help. I had one of the best years of my life at this school. Harder than OSU by leaps and bounds; I enjoyed the challenge. Linda and I travelled all but one weekend while we were here. I made 3 friends who I am still in touch with, and who have made my life so much richer by knowing them. I was so happy here.
