All the way to Spiderman
Today the gates are closed and cars come to the "rear". But pedestrians can walk in and out.
Under the Dome - He stands to welcome, reassure, and comfort the sick.
People still leave flowers and write notes of thanks and sadness in a journal near-by.
Jim and I arrived on Wednesday to attend the Bi-annual medical meetings and Hopkins Medical School Class Reunion. We started with a dinner with his class at the Black Olive Inn, a relatively new restaurant, suggested by a local classmate (because they wanted to test the food). Well, the food was mediocre, over-priced and disappointing but the company was superb and we were so glad to be there.
Thursday was the Grand Class Lunch at the elegant Monaco Hotel - a classic building built in 1905 - which reeked of the elegance of the period. Salmon was delicious. More good conversations and the bi-annual report on the State of the Hospital by the Dean and CEO. Impressive.
Friday was a full day of medical lectures, food, and fun. My dear friend Kay and I once again talked the day away between other conversations and meals. Hopkins always out does itself with the cocktail "snacks" - which I just love - shrimp , crab cakes, poached salmon and a delicious pasta dish, pasta in Alfredo sauce with sauteed shrimp on top. Oh, my. Along with conversations and music. Met a woman doctor, Class of 1949, who practiced as a general practitioner while she raised 9 children - one son was with her, now a doctor.
Ofcourse we came back on Saturday.
It was a great few days.
