Annual Dinner Honoring Distinguished Professors of Duke University

Our table at the Dinner.
Each year in April, Duke University honors its Distinguished Professors with a dinner--usually held at the Washington Duke Inn.  Dan and I enjoy this event---the food is always delicious, we treasure seeing old friends, and we like to meet the new inductees.  Dan was inducted as a James B. Duke Professor of Zoology in 1980, and that year the inductees were actually presented with a physical chair. 
Dan's JBD chair.
Before dinner I was admiring CT's beautiful and unusual necklace.
Lovely lady with lovely necklace.
Lump Crab Louis with Grilled Romaine, Golden Beet Puree & Grapefruit Caviar

Grilled Spiced Filet Mignon, Yukon Gold Potato, Local Asparagus
White Chocolate Pistachio Cheesecake with Raspberry Coulis and Pistachio Brittle

My distinguished professor and me.
Glad to have a reason to carry my favorite clutch.


  1. Very good picture of you and your distinguished
    Like your clutch too!
    But not as much as I like your professor.

    Love you both!

  2. Yes, I like my professor better than my clutch too.

  3. What a handsome and happy couple the two of you make! I miss you both and can't wait to see you!
