No camera--sorry!  I decided to walk over to see what the new MSC looked like today, and stopped by here on the way over.

I'm logging this today even though I "found" it many days ago, but I was in CS today and saw it again...

Talk about memories!  Mrs T. and I came back to a very familiar place to take the picture----we first met many years ago just a very short distance from here and the rest was history, so to speak.  I even had a class in this building!  Thanks for the Virtual that has so much meaning for us!

Not too many people around on a Sunday afternoon.  I stopped in the middle of the road and grabbed a couple of pictures.  Thanks for bringing us here.
