Since it is Throw (way) Back Thursday...
I think this picture, which is so old it's B&W, was taken the day my brother Buzz graduated from Jr High. I sort of remember being that young and hugging him.
Two of my grandkids graduate this week, one from high school and one from middle school. The HS grad, Colt, is going on to diesel mech school. It is what he wants so he can come home and run the mech end of the farming operation. He knows where his talent lies, and a kinder, more giving young man would be hard to find.
The soon to be high schooler, Lauren, is Miss sports, and has her grandma's quirky sense of humor and fierce loyalty to her family. Or so I am frequently told by her mother, Marymine. She wants to be a physical therapist this week, mainly because she likes helping people and is a bit bossy...hmmm.
Ali is home on summer break from SouthWestern, and Cody is getting ready to go to Bethesda. So for a few moments in time I will get to hug on them, and hold them tight.
