I’m leaving Wantagh for Milford, Connecticut, at 11:00 this morning (Eastern Time) and should be there between 12:30 and 1:00.  My check-in at Hampton Inn Milford isn’t until 3:00, but I’ll pass the time somehow.  I’ll probably end up having lunch with my parents, who are graciously driving me to and from Milford, before they drive back home.  My mom is driving by herself to pick me up tomorrow.

I’m hoping I have a good time at Smooth Jazz for Scholars tonight.  I’ll be taking pictures on my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ8 digital camera, without the flash and on a tripod.  And, of course, there will be some great music.

I’ll post select pictures by tomorrow at the earliest, Wednesday at the latest.

In other news, I attended WCWP Alumni Day on Thursday at Long Island University-C.W. Post Campus (henceforth, C.W. Post).  Barbecue food was served by Aramark with the barbecuing (or as they said in the Old West, barbecuin’) already completed.  So, there was no grill.  Alumni present included myself, Larry Brodsky, John Mullen, Mike Ferrari, Joe Sacco, Christine Curiel, Peter Bellotti, Milan Nevidomsky, Beverly Koondel, current Station Manager Dan Cox, and Professor [Maura] Bernie Bernard.  There were moments where I felt aloof and antisocial, especially with the current students or those about to graduate.  But overall, I had a good time.

Most of the pictures I took were candid shots and pictures of Dan’s two dogs: George, a golden retriever, and Seamus, an American bulldog.  So, I won’t share those, at least not yet.  However, I will share a picture of myself with Lawrence (or, I guess, Larry) Garfinkel, my Public Speaking professor in Fall 2001:

I learned a lot from him in the three months I took that course.  I carry that information with me to this day.

I’ll be away from the computer until I return home tomorrow afternoon.  So, until the next post, so long.
