Hi. B and G returned home safe and sound from Italy last evening, so I brought little Maxie back and we caught up. They attended a wedding and it seems to be the time of year for congratulations in many respects. D accepted a wonderful job offer so the clan is moving to Boston. EW will be starting her senior year soon thus the Lily furniture delivery on Sunday. My nephew finishes Kindergarten next week and tonight is his last T-Ball game of the season. So much change and good news! On this day in 1854 the first class of the United States Naval Academy students graduated. The United States Naval Academy is an undergraduate college in Annapolis, MD that educates and commissions officers of the Navy and Marine Corps. The Academy often is referred to simply as "Annapolis." It is also called "The Academy," "The Boat School," or "Canoe U." Sports media refer to the Academy as Navy; this usage is officially endorsed. The U.S. Naval Academy was established 10 October 1845.
Their motto is Ex Scientia Tridens, which is Latin for "from knowledge, sea power" (the trident, emblem of the Roman god Neptune, represents sea power). Joan Rivers, in her career prime was guest speaker, looking resplendent in a navy and white skirt and blazer. Her contract read 'no usage of bad language' and thirteen seconds into her commencement speech was escorted off of the stage. This may or may not have happened. The needlepoint pillows have finally arrived, at least a few of them and another order will be shipping soon. Get it, shipping! I also placed another accessory order and am continually thankful for the business that I get. Enjoy this time of year everyone, with all of the weddings, graduations and positive changes. Have a great day. Today's photo is 'Large Sailboat Summerhouse Accessory', in case you don't have your own 'Boat To Sail'. Chips ahoy! (waves enthusiastically to KM, off on vacation)
