Honors for Mary

Hello everyone - please see attached. I am being honored for getting tenured and promoted to full Professor in a hot 45-minute ceremony with a reception afterwards. It's similar to a graduation as they call my name and I walk up and get something - I think a medal and plaque.

Our worker bees.....

Marie and Michael have been coming over once a week to work for us and clean things up.
They (plus Martin) moved all the furniture out of our bedroom before the floors were laid, plus they moved the stuff back.  As you know everything looks beautiful.
Marie does a fantastic job on our closets.  5 down and 3 to go.  I am so pleased with what she has done that I go in several times a day just to look.  Over 40 years of pile up.
thank you thank you thank you

I also bought a used zip drive and have been looking at the pictures I have stored on them. 
This darling little girl is not Julie!!!!  Look at those dimples......
