a bit o' background
So the story is: Deanna is a super-good college friend. When I moved to Appleton, she was already living here, so we became roommates. Which doesn't always work out (the whole friends being roommates schtick), but for us it really did. After she and Ben got married, she bashed about the 'States teaching French in sketchy places and distracting him from his medical studies (I made that last bit up, but I'm guessing it would be way too fun not to do...). They moved to Heidelberg in the summer of '06, once Ben had completed his residency, and this past August he was deployed. So Dee and I talked about me coming for a visit, and this is what came of it! I'll only stay a week, but dang! all sorts of things can happen in a single minute. And a week has heaps of those!
This is a picture of us with some friends at our last school reunion; Deanna, me, Tushar, Archana, & Santosh!
