Writer’s Note – I’ve been on an extended hiatus for about three months. So, I first want to say “Thank You” to all of you who continue to stop by and check out my blog. This blog and several to follow have been accumulating in my head for quite a while.
Late September 2014 – Family Weekend at Georgia Tech was terrific! Vicki and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, plus we got to see our “baby boy” after he has been in college for just a few weeks. I’ve already seen a transformation of Zach from this summer to now. He seems much more confident and content, and we both think he has made a great choice of schools.
I’ve talked before of my love – like many of you – of college campuses. There’s just something about the feel of being on campus, the vibe given off by the students, and the evolution of large universities from faceless institutions to something akin to that popular corner of a small town. “Intimate” is the word I’m thinking works quite well. Colleges now have shopping, dining, entertainment, technology, and exercise right there on campus. Or, in GaTech’s case, adjacent to campus. It’s amazing to be both on Tech’s campus and to be milling around Tech Square – right across I-85 – enjoying the sights of downtown Atlanta.

Given the ups and downs of the past several weeks, visiting Zach and enjoying a “football weekend” on campus was our vacation for this year. My hope is to be back next year to “feel” that collegiate world.
Go Yellow Jackets!
