sign of the times

When I returned from vacation last week, this sign had been added next to my door plate. I was totally blown away!

We were renovated, redesigned and got new furniture a couple of years ago, but when I started I had this old wooden desk in the office and, of course, I wondered...

It seems to be that we're not 100% sure this is the place, or that my old desk was the desk. He was a visitor then and visitors get moved around and their rooms aren't always listed in the directory. My office is a "visitor" office (as opposed to a larger "faculty" office). And it's the most likely candidate, but more research is being done to hopefully find that elusive proof. And we had a storeroom at the time, with desks, tables, cabinets, etc., that would get swapped around and used as needed. (When we renovated, the old furniture was sold or recycled. I saved the pencil drawer from that desk, thinking to use it as a collage frame--it's still sitting here, under my spiffy new desk.)

My office got the sign only because 514, the other office mentioned, is now a student conference room and no longer an office. Still and all, I'm impressed and a bit awed.
