On the road again....

This gave us some transportation!

Did you miss me?:-)  Last week was time for More Than A Vacation again, a yearly event sponsored by my college Alumni Office. 

There were many activities that filled the days - and even into the evening - so the next several days have been provided with many blogging topics.

While Internet service was handy, time to take full advantage of it was not as we kept quite a busy schedule.  So - keeping up with blogs that I follow was just not part of my day.  Hopefully I will be able to assume a better schedule now that I am home again.

Those of  you who have been following this blog for awhile know that I am a graduate of Emory and Henry College, a small liberal arts college with connections to the United Methodist Church, located in Emory, VA in Southwest Virginia.  I am always anxious to return to campus for various activities, so I had been waiting for this opportunity with great anticipation. 

The theme for this one followed the "Wizard of Oz."  Our Alumni Director - and the committee - used great creativity in planning the program, which even included attending a play!  So - you will learn some things about the area in this blog this week.  I hope you will return.

Incidentally, the blueberries/shopping featured in Saturday's blog were from the PAST Saturday.  The more recent Saturday was definitely NOT unscheduled.:-)

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate your comments.


  1. I'm so glad you get the opportunity to return to that lovely campus at various time during the year! You have done a great job of keeping up with your college classmates, and these times bring much joy to you, I'm sure! I'll look forward to the next several days, as we learn more about your alma mater. Have a marvelous Monday, Sister!

  2. Sounds like such a fun time returning to your Alma Mater. I look forward to more. xo

  3. Welcome home Nellie, you never sit still for very long.
    It sounds like you have been having a great time with your college friends.
    We just attended my husband 50th High School graduation this weekend.


  4. Sounds like a great time. The Wizard of Oz sounds like a fun theme. Can't wait to see more of your "more than a vacation"!

  7. Nice that you are out enjoying life. : )

  8. Sounds like a wonderful visit. I am fortunate to live within a few miles of the college I attended and I often get to meet up with old friends.

  9. Yes I have missed you lately! I think I remember you going there last year too, to a football game right??

  10. How very nice, yes as a matter of fact I did miss you, very much. I am glad you had a nice time.
