I don't always rush, but when I do...

College of Charleston, Charleston, S.C.
I was finishing my walk yesterday by popping into Caviar & Bananas on George St. for their extra scrumptious Duck Confit sandwich when I heard such a roar of activity at the college cistern that I had to check it out.

I probably wasn't supposed to be there but couldn't resist spying for a few minutes on the fraternity pledge announcements. Wow! Each fraternity group wore identifying shirts. Someone with a megaphone walked out with each candidate and to announce what fraternity they now belonged to. There were shouts of excitement and as group rushed up to escort/carry their new member down the steps. Each group had loud celebratory sound effects and what I had heard were the engines of motorcycles roaring.

I believe the college year is now in session.

What a glorious day! Yesterday it was gray and raining as I walked and this morning I opened my windows and doors to the fresh cool air. We must get outside and enjoy this unusual August gift.
