Tomorrow, Tuesday, is Flag Day. That's when we get a little flag of the country we're going to. Everyone's pretty nervous about it. Even worse, we're spending the morning slogging around the muddy, snowy Mount Vernon in order to "take our mind off" it. Right.
Tomorrow it'll be a little more real. We'll know where we're going and when, so we can start thinking about what to buy, projects to finish before we leave, renting out the house..
There are a couple of contests among the class. One is who gets their lowest-most bid. Most of the class kicked in two dollars, so the lucky "winner" gets the pot. That's the pity pot.
Another is more of a March Madness sort of thing, where we guess where each person is going to. Whoever gets the most right wins. The best strategy for this, I think, is to throw darts. The same way the State Department chooses.
Stay tuned.. we're just as interested as you are to see where this takes us.
