Graduation Time

49 years ago this week my mom was graduating from 8th grade at St. Margaret Mary Elementary School in Essington, PA. At work today, we are enduring a graduation practice that has resulted in the blaring of "Pomp and Circumstance" about 50 times. In addition we heard the school's principal imploring the kids not to fall down the steps.

I am sure if he did, about 40 video cameras would capture Johnny cracking his head open on the concrete floor.

Seriously though, It's a fun time of year. Pools are open for the summer.  Summer beers are out. The beaches are getting crowded.  Birthday parties, graduation parties, Father's Day (see my wish list) and the US Open are all vying for our time this month. It's amazing how busy we can make ourselves without even trying!
