I'm back. Yep, that was a quick break, I know, but it helped immensely. It's nice to walk away from the computer, even if it is for only two days. It's funny, but I lost a follower in those two days--what is with that???! Sheesh, somebody couldn't wait.
I'm still riding high on Col's graduation as we are starting to make the circuit of parties. It's really amazing how fast their childhood really goes. It is true how you blink and it is over. Col ended his with some honors--the ropes are for Honor Society and for Tri-M, the music honor society. He graduated in the top 10% of his class, which is pretty good considering there were 451 graduates that night. Okay, I'll end the boasting here--give a mom a break, okay?
Hey, the lilies bloomed this week too! Two lovely fat blossoms appeared on the surface and swimming in the shallows are also about a cabillion baby minnows--proof again that life in the pond is ever-changing and wonderful.
My life seems to be like the pond lately--where the surface seems calm and serene, but underneath, there is activity stirring. Lots of activity. Maybe too much activity. Isn't there a saying like that about ducks?? I think I remember something like that.
I'm gonna rest on this day and think of my buddy, George. He just received his headstone last week at Abe Lincoln National Cememtery, where President Obama is speaking today. Think of him if you happen to see the coverage.
Happy Memorial Day, pallies.
