Congrats to my Pop!

Today I have two reasons to post a new blog. One is to use the new editor function and alleviate my big gripe about placing photos here without taking all day to drag pics around where I want them to go. The other reason is to let the world (okay maybe not the world) or at least everyone that drops in here from time to time know that my dad who just turned 80 years old on the 15th of September also received his College Degree in Criminal Justice from Angelina College. We are all very proud of him for this. He has been attending this College off and on for a looooong time. While working two or three jobs at the time, and seeing that all six of his kids had the opportunity to go to college, he would always put his degree plan on hold to see that we got what we needed.

  1. Wow.. congrats to your dad!!! Now he can take over YOUR job so you can retire, right????

    Kudos to a fine man taking the time to do what he wanted, even if it took him to 80 years to get it done.

    Tell him we are all proud of him!

    Maybe he can be a consultant now for those CSI shows? Take Hollywood by storm!

  3. Good for him! I'm 61 and going for a degree in Web Design. It isn't easy, but I'll make it. Take lots of pictures at his graduation, the memories will last a lifetime and then some. Paul
