Wow. I've been in Philadelphia all week in training for my new position. I'll be there a couple more weeks to boot. I can tell you this, though, that town is bone chilling cold. As I walk each morning from the Soffitel Hotel to GSK, the frigid air cuts right through me. The coat, which I thought was wind proof is obviously not. With no adequate winter hat, my ears begin to feel like frozen flowers, delicate and brittle. Poetic, don't you think?
On the bright side, I enjoyed spending some time with my brother, Scott, in the big city. I plan to have dinner with him when I fly back on Sunday afternoon. Leslie and I are not happy with the current arrangement (her in Cary, me in Philly) but it is a small investment in the position for which I am very happy to have. Especially considering other's situation at the moment.
By the way, for you dirty minded readers, that's William Penn's cane. Shame on you!
