Ground-Breaking for the New Seminary Building, February 17 - on a damp, cold winter day (cold for SC), just before Ruth got here. This would be Ruth's worksite for the next week, grinding back the mortar between the bricks on the face of the building, and cleaning bricks that had been torn off the front of the building, which would be used to make the window openings smaller.
We took Ruth out for an afternoon to experience the downtown area of our beautiful city, Greenville. At the end of our walk downtown, we came to Reedy River Park.
What the writer was thinking of with the song, "Somewhere Over the Rainbow..." (actually, it was some of Ruth's hair in front of the lens)

The day before Ruth left, we went to J. Verne Smith Park (on John A. Robinson Lake) for a picnic. We didn't realize the park closed at 6PM, but the kind rangers left it open a little bit longer. We had a good bbq and a wonderful time.
Phillip is ready to chauffeur Ruth back to Canada...
