Bambi in Headlamps

08 Jan

Well yesterday was a momentous occasion for our family. Our last child went off to school at Texas A&M at College Station Texas. Not only is he going away and we must now confront a truly empty nest, he has joined the Corps of Cadets which means he is essentially a Military Academy. Of the forty odd thousand students at A&M there are but 2000 cadets. See here. Yesterday his Mom was disturbed because he was whisked off to barracks and unceremoniously began his introduction into military life. Okay parents; you can leave now! Come see your child next week and if he makes it through this week he will have some BBQ for you. If not, then…..

Matt Enters Corps of Cadets

Hopefully next week will have us eating some Texas BBQ following open inspection and marching. The real business of learning starts Jan 17th and perhaps, with hard work and lots of “stick to it attitude” we will graduate another Meteorologist.

Thanks for reading my Blog. Best, Chas W5PG
