Harvard University

Well, here we are, two days into our cross-country move (tonight in Tucson, Arizona), and I’ve not had time to shoot a single picture yet.  I probably won’t either, tomorrow, but maybe on Thursday!!!  Tomorrow will be another long day, but Thursday will be pretty brief by comparison.  so, today I’m putting another photo in from 2008.

This photo was taken when we went to visit our son and his family in Boston at Harvard University.  This is one of the main entrances to the campus.  I thought it was interesting that the sign in is Latin.  Of course, everyone who walks by it knows Latin, right???  I mean, what do they think we are, illiterate or something?  Wanna hear something else interesting?  When we were there for the graduation ceremony when our youngest son got his PhD, one of the speeches was given in Latin…and the doctoral diploma is printed in Latin, all except for the name of the recipient!  Oh, am I impressed by that?  Well, not really.  Actually, I thought it was a bit snooty.  But maybe that was because I’m pretty sure that part of the Latin said, “And that’s Tim’s Dad, and he’s a doofus!”

Seriously, though, it’s a great school.  Just a bit aloof…

Harvardianae Latinicus Snooticus

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY: in 1973, Gerald Ford was sworn in as vice president of the United States after Spiro Agnew’s resignation.

TRIVIA FOR TODAY: Judy Garland was only 16 years old in 1939 when she filmed The Wizard of Oz.
