03:01 pm - I'm older than I thought
Today, I received an invitation to a celebration of my fiftieth anniversary of my graduation from Ohio State. Yep, the good ol' days, when Woody was coaching and I was but a mere pup of a lad. . .

Indeed, you read that right: somehow, Ohio State thinks I've graduated for 50 years ago and that I still have the same e-mail address they had on file.

About ten minutes later, I received what appears to be a correction (though it didn't acknowledge the previous mistake) inviting me to the same celebration in honor of my tenth anniversary of graduating from OSU.

In other news, both the trees I mentioned in a previous post are now gone from me; the tree that was in the power lines has been cut, with only about a one inch stump left in its place (and a gigantic pile of wood), and I've now moved offices and so cannot see the tree I used to see outside my window. Still, there are hopes that the willow will grow back, and the sweetgum remains standing, of course.

About a month after I graduated high school I got a letter asking me to renew my contact info for substitute teaching. A week later I got another letting saying "oops, we see you aren't actually a sub."

I'd have responded that it was nice of our alma mater that they were able to place you in a low-paying, un-appreciated job so soon after graduation, but that they should really look for college graduates for substitute teachers.

Then again, I had a few subs who might have started right after high school there. . .

If you need any willow, I have a young sapling that needs to be cut back for its own good. Too many branches at the base.

I didn't realize that it had been 10 years since you graduated. Damn I feel old now. I meet you right after you graduated I thought.
