Indoors with Hitty Geneva Grace

Earlier this week, I escorted Geneva Grace to visit the two schools where my Person teaches Advanced Composition and Research & Rhetoric courses. First we went to the University of Richmond. This semster’s Advanced Composition class is quite small. It began with six, but dwindled to only five, and on the night we were there, the only female class member was absent. However, Person lined up the fellows and made them (er, invited them) to hold us. It took a couple of shots to even get one suitable for publication.

Then we went to visit the Research & Rhetoric II class at Virginia Commonwealth University. First, though, we held office hours. It was a bit boring since nobody came. However, instead of having to sit still and behave the entire time, we could explore some.
Here we are, being good and proper little Hittys in the office.

Oh my - there are no words to describe what Hitty Geneva found on the bookshelf.  Person denies any knowledge of the find.

Fortunately, the hour passed quickly enough and we walked a few more blocks from the office to another building for class. This class was much bigger than Person’s night class at the other university, and the people here were friendly and curious.
Here we are surrounded by our admirers.  However, we noticed that several students seem to have ducked out the door before the picture was taken.  Hmm.

Going to class is fun, particularly when we are not the ones who must study or teach.

Today, Saturday, Person’s daughter, Miss Legal Eagle, wrote to say that Wild Child had spotted a picture of Hitty Geneva on this blog. She immediately retrieved her dear friend, Hitty Rose, and the two listened raptly to Miss LE explain about Travel Hittys. Learning that Hitty Geneva was in town for only a short time, Wild Child and Hitty Rose immediately asserted that Hitty Geneva and Hitty Rose MUST meet. Could it be arranged? Certainly. Hitty Geneva was most obliging and agreed to stay on simply to meet up with this littlest fan. Stay tuned for the meet-and-greet.
