Back home! Son and I drive both cars back... it was cool, I didn't go over 65 due to gas mileage in the Wrangler pulling a trailer. But in his VW Golf he'd floor it. I assumed I'd see him about 8 hours later in NM... but ended up that I can go for hours without stopping while he... well, was just like the tortoise and the hare. He did get in about 90 mins before me Sunday morning. He graduated with BS in Studio Art -and- won first place in the Senior Art Show at Univ of Maryland. It is nice when you have a kid studying art to be told by the Dept Chair during the reception when I mentioned to him that this should gave my son confidence in his talent... "we have kids with talent, talent here is a dime a dozen, what your son has we haven't been able to put a name on yet." It's just really good to hear that teaching or managing a McDonalds isn't his only option.
We are headed up to Winter park later this week if anyone wants to meet up!
