With a suspiciously enthusiastic Dr. Charles Garside of the History Department standing way too close:
As usual I won’t be posting on either Good Friday. Happy Easter to all my friends who celebrate on the Western calendar and once again we’re a week later:
I know none of us will be doing things the way we usually do but if we’ve learned anything at all from How the Grinch Stole Christmas its that no matter what we do it comes anyway.
Bonus: I’ll leave you with a bit of optimism. Back in August I wrote a post with bonus pictures of new grass planted in the shady strip between Rayzor and Sewall–go here for a look. When I was on campus the other day I was astonished to see that the rye grass that they overplanted for the winter had died off in the heat but this zoysia underneath was still alive! I’m not going to claim that it’s lush or anything like that but it is most definitely not dead and it actually looks pretty good as long as you don’t look straight down at it. I’m taking this as a really good sign!
