March 31 New Hope Middle School

Jerry Byrd and David worked together in Kemper County last year; Jerry moved home to New Hope High School where he teaches math and coaches soccer and tennis. David had come to the middle school to give me a hand setting up my new computer.

March 29 Transportation

Dad working on getting the station wagon operational again; it started after being jumped off, but when Dad tried to start it again, no luck. We are going to take it to check the starting mechanism, and if that is ok, buy a new battery. It's always something, isn't it?

Kaite and I at Peppers on Saturday for Lunch; it was Jesters' Parent/Daughter Day! This usually happens after Songfest. However, Songfest was pushed back on the calendar and so many of the social clubs had already scheduled their Parent/Daughter events several weeks ago; we did the one for Rogues the weekend before the week before spring break....the weekend Kaite was coming down with the flu.

Patti and Norman welcomed us with a crawfish feast friday night; it conjured up memories of my childhood visits to my family in New Orleans who would always treat us to a table covered in newspaper and piled high with crawfish!

March 16

Kaite's first outing since she got the flu was a trip to the dorm to pick up a few things and then on to The Grapevine to get her art pieces framed for the student show. A few shots of her room in Callaway Hall.

Still Life of Stuff

We had a little problem after we got Kaite's stuff out of the dorm; she left her keys in the room; the room was locked and we couldn't get into the car. She had to call Nicole to let her back into the room and I guarded the stuff that we had deposited on the top of the car. Oh, college days...
