Nieces are Nice

Monica Z. is coming to join Shirl and me for lunch here at Casa Victor,  As followers of my Fulbright Year blog will recall, Moni is a doctoral candidate at UBB-Cluj, and was our friend and my teaching assistant in that Fulbright year.  She has come to Bucharest for a friend's wedding.  Learning of this, we have stayed an extra couple of nights here in B-town, so that we can give her a ride home, something any uncle and aunt would do for a chance to spend a whole day with such a dear niece!

I have just spoken on the phone with Melinda P.  Again, the world-hopping, multi-lingual Melinda is one of my former teaching assistants at UBB and also an honorary niece, much-mentioned in last year's blog.  On Monday, we will see Meli for lunch.

I have just chatted in Yahoo Messenger with Teodora (Dora) F., still another star of the prior blog, adopted niece, and a UBB graduate now working in Cluj.  Dora has offered to help me get my HP Laptop repaired, and I will also see her on Monday at Iulius Mall.  I hope that she will be able to join us for dinner.

Dear nieces, you are all among my favorite people.  I look forward to seeing you again.
