Boston University 1996


Gretchen graduated from BU in the spring, 1996.  Pat, Peter and I went to Boston for her graduation.  Here is a pictorial record of that graduation.

After the festivities, we need to pack up Gretchen and move her to California.  She has been accepted to do graduate work in chemistry at Stanford.  We get a Penske truck and begin packing.  Peter leaves to fly back to California.  Pat, Gretchen and I will drive first to our home in Texas, where we will have a two week break before continuing on to California.   Since Gretchen also had a car, we will be driving 2 vehicles.  And since we have a two week break, we will need to unpack return the truck and get another truck before continuing to California - the expense you know.
