This past Saturday I took some students on a trip to Fort Fisher. Things didn’t quite go according to plan. It rained on and off during the drive there, and then we had about 40 minutes of windy, overcast partial sunshine before it began to pour. We waited for a while to see if things cleared up, but eventually had to cancel the rest of our planned tour. All the trip participants were very good sports about it, but it was a huge disappointment. I did get one group picture in relative sunshine.
I guess we can’t have huge successes at all times. I had a great turnout for Dr. Jacqueline Campbell’s guest lecture last Tuesday, and then History Movie Night was packed, so two very successful events out of three in a week isn’t a bad record.
