Hi everyone. Happy T day. Hope everyone is well and staying safe. Here in the US the virus is getting out of control in some places, or so the news is reporting. I think people are having isolation rebellion, especially with summer weather here. I live in a tourist area, and it is a little scary to me to see how many people are back at their camps or who are visiting. Not that I blame these people for coming, but our population triples in the summer and those much higher numbers are scary.
This is the time to share your drink related post over at Bleubeard and Elizabeth''s blog
So my drink related photo today is this mug I received as a retirement gift from a friend. My friend Deb was the one who was going to have my retirement party at her house. Her son is studying graphic arts so he made a custom design that was for both myself and my friend Jo who also retired this June. If it wasn't for Covid 19 and there could have been a retirement party, this design was suppose to be the napkins and paper plates, but since Covid caused the cancellation of the event, Deb used the images to make us both a mug.
And my face side are some biology images, and on my friend Jo's side are some chemistry images as her background was that science.
It's a fun mug with a fun story, and I like how it celebrates both of us retirees.
And this past Friday evening the school finally was able to have graduation. I had a lot of connections with kids in this class. These were connections that went back for 2 years when I had them as sophomores. So I wanted to go for that reason, plus I was curious about how graduation would be run with this virus and social distancing.
So here I am with my mask and my robe. The school orders teacher's robes to wear as it give an air of formality to the event.
Normally the staff and student march in but this year they had names on the seats for the kids so they could just go sit down. The staff seating was all around the edge of the kids, and it was open seating for staff on those seats.
And I like this photo a parent took and sent to my friend Deb (whose son designed the mug). That's her on the right and me on the left.
I think the school did a fantastic job keeping everyone separated and being sure masks were worn. They only allowed 1 car for each student, with only 2 guests (they all had to be in the 1 car) per student. The ceremony was recorded and also shown live on the local cable network channel. After the ceremony ended, each graduates car participated in a car parade through the city.
That's my post for today. I hope everyone has a great T day!
And thanks for visiting.
