Elvis has not left the building
Elvis had dropped by the campus to help some students in the Writing Center. Now personally, I think he was a bit overdressed for college, but then, it is Elvis. A guy who went to a gig in 1955 wearing orange pants and a lilac shirt is definitely a little over the top. As Pete and I were leaving, he swung by Elvis' house, which is just down from the campus. They are preparing to make some additions to the museum, but I don't know what they are at this time. It was very quiet and deserted looking, as it typically is this time of the year, at least in mid-week.
We got back to campus--after driving through a thunderstorm--just in time for me to make my 4:30 meeting in the dean's office. The meeting was scheduled for 4:30-5:00. At 6:00, Randy finally gave up waiting for me to finish (we are down to one vehicle this week) and went to get gas and go to the pharmacy. Of course, that is when I finished, and it was dark, cold, raining, and I was 2 blocks from my office. My friend who was also at the meeting generously drove me to the pharmacy to meet Randy. It is good to have generous people in your life, isn't it?
