All's swell that ends swell.
Swell!

Joyful Treat

For all the help I'd received this past semester, I treated the office staff to something special yesterday:


The box held mysteries to be revealed:


Six mysteries, in fact! Obtaining the cakes was well worth the effort, for everyone looked very happy, and they later sent me an email:
Dear Jeffery Hodges +_+

Hello. This is GLEO.

We wanna say Thank you very much for your beautiful cake. We are so touched. Happy Summer!

See you soon^^

Best,

GLEO
I don't know what +_+ and ^^ mean, but I assume they don't mean "drunk" and "even drunker"! Whatever these hieroglyphic marks might depict, I'm looking forward to one relaxing month . . .
