Sorry to hear that Andy. Hope the kids bounce back quickly.

Good luck Mark. Saw the pic of you and Brian. Looks like you guys had a good time. Speaking of which, Brian, you going to be down here anytime soon?

We ate out almost every night. Found a really nice Italian restaurant in West Orange. The bolognese was excellent. Also ate at her favorite Mexican place. She got me back Thursday for lunch when we ate at the cafeteria. Not bad actually compared to my days in school.

I assumed as much... pretty easy to tell by the writing style. And the fact that the location was Fort Mill, SC. And the fact that the names in the sig belong to your family. But nicely done!
Yep I did one dang fine job of makin’ myself look even more foolish the usual.
It seems even you saw fit to give me a bit of a break. But I see that you have far more important things on your mind.

No fair…
Sorry to hear about this. The ball game is an unfortunate loss, but the anniversary dinner can be rescheduled so at least that one’s not a total loss. May the kids get over it quickly, and my no one else in the house catch that nastiness.

I suspect I made a bigger fool of myself today then you did. Good luck on the job and congrats on getting in a meet for lunch (even if it was with your nemesis : ).

Just remember… We’re all counting on you

I’m sorry, that’s note quite fair now is it?
I can’t promise that I’ll have nightmares, but I’ll be concerned for you if it helps any.

Actually My brother has the problem that you have.
One of his just turned 18 and the other is about to hit 13.
Lord help him…

The fact that you’re worried about it leads me to believe that you’re probably doing just fine.

No luck so far getting BOG booked, if we had pre-booked the actual trip, it'd be easier, then we could sneak ahead, instead of day-to-day, but that's the way it goes...


Day 3 was good. really really busy though, and I got the first spin running main cash, in years. Been working hard, shaking off the rust and lazy habits I'd developed, and doig well, but ye gods, I am tired when I get home.

Accepting tips is not allowed..

Well…
It’s obvious that we survived the trip up into the mountains. Nasty drive both up and back with a continuous cold rain making the going a bit miserable. But then again, it stayed clear all during the day so we had no problems getting around the campus.

We met with most of the faculty and a good number of the students in the music department. Very impressive and encouraging exchanges all around.

Our boy knocked out the official audition about mid afternoon and walked out feeling very confident. He’s quite use to auditions, but rarely ever thinks he’s done very well until the results are far better then he expects. For him to feel good about this one has me feeling good about his chances. But there are a lot of kids on the same horn shooting for a limited number of spots in a top ranked program and that’s got his momma a might worried. That last bit may make for a long three weeks waiting on the results, but I’ve got a good feeling about it.

In the mean time he got accepted into another university (academically at least). Now I need to get him down there for another audition fairly soon. It’s always good to have options.


Thanks for the well wishes and for letting me waste your time rambling on.
We’ll now return this thread back to its regularly scheduled collection of off-topics.

I did say I was disturbed! Well, I mean mostly b\c it wasn't Belle or Jasmine...so I felt like I was cheating.

Happy Saturday guys. Busy day here at the Duck house:

I have to mail our passport renewals
Send our contract to the adoption agency we have chosen
Mail a Disdad his bracelet he ordered
Haircuts for the whole family
Go to the grocery store
At some point watch Frankenweenie

Have a good one guys
