Spreading smiles, one compliment at a time

I started out on the Purdue website this morning headed for my own webpage, when I caught sight of “the compliment guys” on one of the headline banners cycling through. I have no idea how much local publicity these guys got before national media got wind of them, but whatever it was, it wasn’t nearly enough!

I am so completely impressed by Brett Westcott and Cameron Brown, and so completely bummed that none of the classes I taught last term took me between what looks like Weatheral and Stanley Coulter Hall on Wednesdays. But you can bet I’m going to make it a point to walk past them Wednesdays this fall. I think we can use all the smiles we can get.

Thanks, Brett and Cameron ~ you go, guys.

Massachusetts must be close to heaven

’cause I don’t think I’ve ever seen the full moon so close to me before. It has accompanied me home (back to Ruth and Jed’s) the last two nights, a warm golden tinge to the orb when it set low in the sky last night, just over my left shoulder as I headed down 95 from Burlington, and high, bright-squint-white tonight (as I was returning considerably later!), heart-warming companion on the night dark highway.
