Thursday in St. Paul was another mellow day. Started off with breakfast and touring the Univ. of Minnesota campus with Philip. Then I drove around St. Paul some more - I really like the neighborhoods quite a bit. Much playing with the dopey doggie occured. Corresponded with colleagues and students. The day concluded with dinner and a walk along the river with Philip and his new girlfriend, whom I liked quite a bit. She bought me excellent chocolate ice cream, so we're friends for life. ;)
My time here in St. Paul was relaxing...just what I needed...and that was thanks to Philip. I have no clue how we became friends, but I'm grateful for him.
In a few minutes...back on the road! Yay!
