Vacation and Graduation

It’s all over, and Michael is a very happy man!

Today is the last day of my mini-vacation, and what a week it’s been!

My wife and I took the week off to prepare for our eldest son’s graduation from high school. We spent the week cleaning the house from top to bottom, decorating, and preparing food for the party. On Saturday, it all came together and we had a blast!

The graduation ceremony was held at the Opera House here in Spokane. We went in about a half hour early and found that all the seats on the lower level were gone, so we sat in the balcony. At least my wife and I were able to get into the front row there. We also took a ton of pictures (which didn’t turn out so good), there’s a slide show here (opens in a new tab/window).

Afterward, we had a huge party at our place! Good food, family, and friends always make for a great time!

A huge thank you from Michael to everyone who sent a gift (they were most generous!!). He’s sending out “thank you” cards today.

    Pass along my congratulations. Another fine citizen joins the nation. I personally think of front row balcony seats as the best in most houses. How goes the pain wars?

    The pain wars go on and on.

    I’ll get into that on my next post (which will be tonight or tomorrow).

    Don’t know how long the wars last. Been about 18 years or so for me. After so long it just becomes a part of the routine. Been in a lot of trials lately, not sure if they’re worth it or not, as I spent a good deal of the time sick from side effects. Rather pain than puke anyday:)
