As you can see, the tulips in front of the university have started to bloom in large numbers. Not all of them, but you get the idea. This is really pretty. I think that I am much more cognizant of changes to the trees and flowers as I walk to work every day than I am normally.
Next, I asked Ann to bring the hair clippers with her when she came back to Russia, so I am no longer the cool guy with hair well below the ears. Now I look more like a basic training recruit than a rock star. Yes, with my flowing (grey) locks, I believe that women wanted to date me and guys wanted to be me. 🙂 Now, not so much. Actually, my middle son Joey — 20 years old — had all of his hair fall out over the last 2 months. No idea why it happened, but I thought I would cut my hair in solidarity with him.
