Two weekends ago my granddaughter and her parents loaded their vehicles and left very early Friday morning for the annual pilgrimage to the other side of the state where granddaughter was to begin her sophomore year at WSU. This morning I received a set of jpgs (see, I’m using the lingo) showing how her suite and bedroom were are arranged.
