If someone in the class needs help, all one has to do is raise your hand and help arrives. Would that all our problems could be solved like that! All of the students we have met are polite and helpful. If we approach a door, someone is usually there to open it for us. One of these kids was my great-great nephew, Matt Sharp. OSU can be proud of its students. Our instructor is very good. I say that now, I haven't looked at the first assignment yet. If I fail at this, it won't be his fault, it will be because I'm eaten up with dumb. We sat on the front steps of the building where the class is held because we were early and we ",people watched." We noticed that there is a bus system on campus. Someone said it was free. That's a plus. Back home, trying to decide what to eat for lunch without cooking anything, I settled for a cottage cheese and fruit salad, and if I'm still tired this evening it will be pizza for supper.
