Graduating This Year?

Posted by mcm0704 on June 8, 2020 |

Saturday was the official graduation day for my youngest granddaughter in Austin Texas. She’s the last of the grandkids to graduate from high school, and her graduation is so different on so many levels from her cousins.

Words of Wisdom for Graduates

Posted by mcm0704 on June 17, 2019 |

As a special treat today, I have Slim Randles with a fun post about graduation and graduation speakers.

I’m traveling again this weekend – right after my five minutes of fame on television – so I am preparing this in advance. It’s always nice to have something posted on the days I say I am going to post. (smile) Today I want to honor my daughter, Anjanette, who now likes to be called […]

Monday Morning Musings – Old and Young
