I ventured out yesterday on campus with the camera – first time I was able to get a good shot of the senior bench since the snowstorm.

One measure of a person’s impact on this campus is how long their name remains on the bench.  Mike Bachner’s name has been on there for over three months – and that’s on a bench that can be painted several times a week.  A fitting tribute to Some Little Giant.

I stopped by the Bookstore after taking the photos and was surprised to see Mike’s desk empty.  Somehow I just knew he’d be sitting there…

Bet they didn’t get 17" of snow in heaven!
