(15) Wed Jan 03 2007 20:59: After a wild four months preparing nearly thirty job applications, sending Dave to interview at six universities, and weighing three offers, we have made a final decision. We have accepted an assistant professor appointment in the Reubin O'D. Askew School of Public Adminstration and Policy at Florida State University. Yay, Dave! Way to go! It really is a fabulous opportunity. I am very pleased. Tallahassee, here we come!

Neato! Wow, three offers out of six interviews sounds like a darn good yield. When's the move? Should we try to visit you before?

There are some who plant seed that takes longer to bear fruit, and others who plant short-season seed. You and Dave are examples to Louise and I of the faith it takes to plant that type of seed which requires long-term care, but which bears enduring fruit. As Dumas said, the enduring experiences of human existance can be summed up in two words; wait and hope. It was wonderful to be with you during Christmas.
