This 'n That Thursday

Did I mention that my children are graduating from college this weekend?  On the same day?  At the same hour?  Here's how we're gonna do it:

  • Friday morning: MPM flies to Charlottesville, Virginia, rents car.
  • Friday evening: MPM and The Bird have dinner at Monticello.  Yes, Monticello!
  • Friday night: MPM has been invited to a party at The Bird's apartment.
  • Meanwhile, the MP Dad is is Philadelphia attending festivities with Augie.
  • Saturday morning: Stephen Colbert delivers the Valedictory speech at UVA.  MPM is a little bit excited about this.
  • Saturday afternoon: MPM drives to Philadelphia and MP Dad drives from Philadelphia to Virginia.
  • Saturday evening: MPM attends party with Augie and other friends and parents.
  • Sunday morning: the babies graduate from their respective universities.  MPM cries.
  • Sunday afternoon/evening: festivities ensue.  
  • Monday morning: MPM begins to pester Augie to wake up so she can help him throw away all the crap and fumigate  pack his apartment.
  • Monday evening: MPM flies back to Nashville.  MPM cries a little bit more.
Where did the time go?

Gosh MPM, I remember the day you posted about The Bird packing up and leaving for college - there was something pink - cowboy boots or fuzzy pink zebra luggage?

Anyhow, Congratulations to everyone.
Wonderful milestone.

I had Zoom, and I noticed very little difference. My family, friends and Coworkers didn't even notice. I also use crest white stripes.

I am NOT SUGGESTING Females WOULD Have to GO TOPLESS, JUST When they Choose TO
AND At the very least Possess the Correct TO.

DO YOU Think THAT Men Nevertheless Manage WOMENS BODIES WITH Guidelines
THAT Have been Created Long Prior to Women COULD VOTE?

TOPLESS IS Legal THERE AND Has been For many Decades.
