I must have received a dozen or more birthday greetings for the big three-one yesterday on my Facebook wall. I heard from Milligan alums, UGA colleagues, former students, and all sorts of folks. And I thank all of ’em.
I also got, as far as I know, the first ever Conservative Reformed Mafia birthday greeting. See? Those Republican types ain’t all bad! 😉
And just in case someone entertained the hope that I could get through a post without griping about grading papers, I’ve got six to go in this set. I could reasonably finish them before noon today, assign grades to the ones I hurried through for the sake of portfolio requests by early afternoon, and have until next Wednesday to study for comps before portfolios come in. (Then a few more days after that before double-grading starts.)
