Ken had considered taking me to the TU game at 11:00 am. Ken opted out of that to visit the Hafli at St Antony Orthodox Christian Church.
I looked it up, a Hafli is a Mediterranean food festival meaning Hospitality. This event was advertised as a Lebanese Gourmet festival.
I thought it was to be more than just food -- but it was a meal with deli items to purchase. Basically it was St Antony's annual fund raising event for needy children. The meal consisted of a seasoned boneless chicken breast served over HASHWA (rice, beef and almonds). There was a cabbage roll, hummus, pita bread, tabouli and a greba butter cookie. The meal was very tasty. And because the event was a fund raiser for local needy children, we bought a box of six cookies to take home. I'll tell you about that in a moment.
And Ken got to see some of the TU Game after all as it was playing on the television. TU was playing Marshall College. The score ending up 38 to 10 in favor of TU. Ken was a happy man and I did my usual sorry for the underdog and wishing at least TU could have allowed them to save face by scoring more points than that.
The church is on 6th street west of the TU Track field. TU is where both Ken and I graduated. So we hold some tender feelings for the memories of the days on this campus. Ken's years at TU were in the '60s and mine in the '90s. It has greatly changed and very beautiful. They have added so many new buildings and changed the driving passages throughout the campus.
This is the original entrance to the main administration building. It use to be a "U" which has been closed off and is now a brick walkway and grassy park. The entrances by car are from 11th street or Harvard or further north on Delaware.
Now I will finish my story about the $9.00 box of six cookies that we bought at the fundraiser. On the way home we stopped by Sams to pick up a few items. They had a large assortment tray of Baklawa and other Greek cookies for $9. Ken commented "well, it was a fund raiser for a good cause."
