we moved our youngest daughter into college. I'm not sure who was more nervous
or excited. Excited for her as we were the other girls of course.
not as though we haven't done this before. Granted the first time was twelve
years ago (HOLY CRAP!) and the last time was 11 years ago (HOLY CRAP! again).
those intervening years both of the older girls have moved out and away, some
far away. The wife and I have had 5 jobs, 4 vehicles and now 4 grandchildren
(but stay tuned).
would think we would be skilled and smooth about this.
this was different. This was moving our last child out. Not away to camp or to
visit one of her sisters for a few weeks in the summer.
her out and on her own (of a sorts) to return only for holiday breaks and a few
months in the summer. And the occasional weekend since she is going close to
is different because for the last 30 years 5 months and 11 days I have primarily
self identified (as it is all the rage to say today) as a father. Which means my schedule
has more often than not been dependent on theirs. Getting them to school and
band and concerts and dance class (I read sooo many books sitting in that
corner chair waiting for her) and Friday Night Lights at Don Thomas and doctor
appointments and to work and home again and planning meals and mowing and trips
to the gym or just a night out with the spouse around that schedule.
parties and big Christmas parties and Bigger Graduation parties

work or school

their TeeVee shows louder than mine or "Dad could you turn your TeeVee

all the other noisy boisterous joyous sometimes cranky cantankerous happy sad
moody loud sullen heartbreaking heart thrilling things that fill your every
sense when you are a committed (mind yer manners folks) primarily self

IBA Quote of the Week.
"We are looking forward to the day when moderate Muslims will be able to take control of their governments, their educational systems, and their law and order, so the Western world could resume mutual constructive relations based on friendship and respect. The whole world is looking forward to that day and praying for a peaceful Middle East. The ball is now in the Muslim world's court."
-- President Elect Donald J. Trump
"An Islamic regime must be serious in every field," explained Ayatollah Khomeini. "There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humour in Islam. There is no fun in Islam."
"I want to be very, very clear, however: I understand and agree with the analysis of the problem. There is an imminent threat. It manifested itself on 9/11. It's real and grave. It is as serious a threat as Stalinism and National Socialism were. Let's not pretend it isn't." ~~~~~Bono~~~~~
