Man I feel old!

For those of you who know Flygirl, she graduates from College on Saturday May 4th. Mrs.Fly and yours truly is in TN to watch the graduation events over the weekend. I can’t help to think about all the miles she has on the back of a Goldwing!
She graduates with a Criminal Justice major, Homeland Security minor, and a Paralegal certificate as well. She has some job offers which she is evaluating but it looks like she will remain in TN. I’m just waiting for her to now do the safety course and buy her own motorcycle......Man, how time does fly!! (No pun intended)

Congratulations. She was about waist high when we met.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

She is a very talented gal, that is for sure.

I remember when I first met her, like Dave said, she was about waist high IIRC.
that was at the hotel across the road from the campground in Eureka Springs, AR.
10 years ago or more?

Feeling old and being old are two different things. Congratulations for bringing her up right. You should feel good about that.
