Son graduating UT Austin Friday

My oldest son, Christian (42) is graduating from UT Austin on Friday with a degree in RTF (Radio, Television, Film). Originally Deb and I were going to go but she's a bit under the weather as it appears it's just me attending graduation ceremonies from up our way. I have another son in Austin I'll be staying with and perhaps my son from San Diego will fly in too. I'm particularly proud of Christian as he went back to school as an old man compared to his contemporaries and maintained a 4.0 grade average and worked full time and paid his way 100%. Since Deb can't make it looks like I might take the SW for my 250 mile trek south on Friday. Bike is clean and ready.

Thanks all. These moments are the high spots of parenting. Part of our reward for all the blood, sweat and tears of raising these youngsters to responsible adulthood. Chris also had to overcome a trajedy when he fell asleep at the wheel and it killed his mother and girl friend and a grandmother and 2 children in the other car. He's come along way.
