Billy's Graduation Entrance

LittleLarry's tiny baby boy (who measures in a good 5 inches taller than LittleLarry hisveryownself) graduated from high school this past weekend. His political science teacher is thrilled to see him go...having a well educated politically active kid in his classroom on a daily basis made his a nervous wreck kept him on his toes.

It is a relief to see Billy and his peers invest so much time and heart into the world around them. All of the people out there who decry our under-30 voting adults as the slacker generation (I'm looking at you Ms. Hillary!) are missing out on a chance to tap into the talents and the engery of some amazing young men and women. These kids will be voting in our next election cycle, and while this worries many people it makes me excited and proud.

Remember, the people who think they can change the world are the ones who often do.

Candidate Larry is still walkin' kinda slow, but I wouldn't call it limping - and he's driving his own self to work, and even been back on the bike; but he still sleeps on his left side and snores into my right ear. And I get to do the driving to Ft. Worth on Thursday. I hope to see y'all there!
