Happy Birthday, Annie!

My first grandchild was born this morning up here in Omaha, a little girl named Ann. Mother and beautiful baby are doing great; I’m a bit shaky.  Still, although I’m less coherent than usual, I can manage to put up some more of Dr. Davies’s lovely campus photographs. But here’s fair warning: things might be ever so slightly erratic around here for a while.

Here’s a sequence showing the blossoming of the geology and biology buildings. These pictures had to have been taken from the top of the chemistry building, I would guess from the balcony off the west side of the second floor. There’s a lot to look at in these–hedges, trees, roads–but I really enjoy that lone tree.


Bonus: Here’s the balcony I mean. It’s only accessible by walking through someone’s lab. (I don’t recommend this, by the way.)

And here’s the view to the west from there:

Extra bonus: Someone asked about this photo from yesterday. I really struggled to orient myself with this one too. It’s the beginning of construction of the RMC. The building in the background is the side of the gym.

    Congratulations to you and your family, Melissa. We look forward to seeing her photo (in front of a Rice building, of course!).

    Congrats!! Now we know that you’ve been in Omaha so often lately for reasons other than researching the baseball Owls’ appearances there. 🙂 Best wishes to all on this momentous occasion.
