Preparations Continue


As our work week has come to an end, we will spend the bulk of the weekend packing and preparing for our departure. Tomorrow my wife and I will begin the doses of coumadin our doctor prescribed to help prevent blood clots during our 15.5 hour flight. It's interesting that this component of rat poison in small doses will thin the blood.

We're really looking forward to meeting our students at the university where we'll be teaching and to getting to know people there. We have heard from many how graciously guests are received there. I checked the weather online today and learned that, if for no other reason, our welcome will be warm. The day of our arrival on the island the temp will rise to 96 F with thunderstorms.

This coming Monday, as always, our celebration of the 4th of July will include celebrating my wife's birthday.

Strangers in Paradise?


I thought you might like to see several images of where we'll be in July. The first one shows some local scenery.

We'll be teaching at a university - my wife will be teaching Interior Decorating and I will be teaching French culture.
