During orientation, we had a sort-of crash course in Spanish – they taught us how to hail a cab, order coffee, etc. At the start of the class, one of the instructors called the roll.

When he got to me, he pronounced my name – Charles – as any Spanish speaker would. Char – LES (as opposed to CHAR – uls).

It stuck and it might just be my favorite nickname. I’ve even got the head administrator calling me CharLES. I’m bringing it back to the States.

    Hi Charlie, thinking about you having a nice spring (?) season while we are digging out our sweaters, and getting in a wood supply.
    Now we have 14 grandchildren 0-20!
    Courses going well?
    Any place to sing?
    Love, Gramma
