Today, after we finished with the doctor’s appointment, we drove by the Seminary just for the heck of it. It was fun to remember “those days”!!
Here is Watts Hall, the main administration building and the building most associated with UTS.
The Gargoyle on Watts Hall keeps close watch over the Seminary.
Here is the new Library. The building was not quite finished when Ken was working there.
This building is a dorm for the students. Our really good friend, Millie, ran the Mail Room in this building. She and Ken used to laugh about getting each other in the closet during “those days”!! Millie has now retired to the country with her husband, BJ.
Notice the “Quad” with the buildings on three of the four sides. This was so lush and green when Ken was in charge of the grounds. Ken said, “Look at all those trees I planted! I planted those, and those, and those and …” I used to bring a picnic and make Ken eat lunch with me in the Quad. He hated it!!
Here is Ken standing in front of the Chapel where we were MARRIED almost thirty years ago by a Seminary professor.
And the inside of the Chapel where we were pronounced Man and Wife!
These are the tennis courts with the Physical Plant in the background (that is where Ken worked). Believe it or not, we played tennis on these courts against the wife of the Seminary President and her guest, Patricia Cornwell!! Yes, that’s right! The Patricia Cornwell, the bestselling crime writer (although she was not so well known in “those days”!!
And here is Mike. Mike worked with Ken for about twenty years before Ken retired. He said he was like a little kid following Ken all around the Seminary, absorbing the knowledge of the Master; following him to the dump, and sometimes even to the liquor store!!
Mike is so funny! Every time we see him he tells a tale on my son, Barry, who worked at UTS a summer or two. Mike would start, “How’s Barry? Then he would start laughing until he had tears in his eyes. That Barry Hee Hee I’ll never forget Ha Ha Barry comes into the shop one day and says Ha Ha Ha I was a Good Samaritan today! I helped a blind lady back her car out of the cul de sac. Ha Ha Ha Ha Why do you think she was blind, Barry? Well because, she had those push buttons on her dash instead of a gear shift! Ha Ha Ha Well, Barry. If she was blind, do you think she would be driving??!! Ha Ha Ha
