What’s this? Is this Jayne Pynes come calling at this weblog, commenting in this post? Yes, it is. And thus some background.
Jayne (and correct me if this is true–are you done with the Rhet/Comp Ph.D?) is one of my oldest and best friends back in El Paso, along with her husband, Pat, a potent historian and Ph.D candidate at the University of Texas at El Paso. The history goes farther back to Catholic church and other familiarities. All of us were very close in undergraduate and grad school and had lots of adventures. My wife and I still cringe at the image of a heavy ladder almost taking off Jayne’s legs during a paint job at our old house.
Moves have separated us and yet while separated we’ve maintained contact (somewhat) and hope to hook up again for more games in the future. It’s tough with children on both sides and growing families and lots of work to keep everyone busy. And now Jayne tells me she’ll be hitting the classroom at Coronado, one of our nemeses in high school.
Thanks for stopping by, Jayne. Come back and often.
