Our mid day begun with fine bar-b-que lunch at the famous or is it the infamous? Swingin' Door--a favorite location for all locals and guests to head where one can chow down on the best smoked meats around (brisket, pork ribs with meat that falls off the bones, turkey, chicken, sausage). That served along with sides of the old standard faire (cowboy beans, slaw, potato salad) will get you the best eatin' around. Sorry there is no photo of the food--it was goobled up too quickly to satisfy hungry appetites. Y'all just need to get you some!
It was graduation weekend in our area with different ceremonies for each of the seven high schools. Seniors were handed their diplomas and sent out into the world. Some will carry on with their education to attend colleges, universities, or technical schools while others will enter military service and some will jump right into the business world. Are we ready for this new generation of young people who have their own 'bright' ideas of how the world should run?
This was the event for our senior granddaugter and her fellow graduates. There were so many empty chairs on the floor of the convention center; waiting, just waiting to embrace those anxious bodies--close to 600 bodies would soon be waiting for that moment when their name would be called to receive that piece of paper that certifies they have accomplished 12 years of learning. Time to move on and out the door.
The chairs begun to fill slowly to the beat of all time 'Pomp and Circumstance' as high school seniors took their place to the hoots and hollers from family and friends, who had crowded the lower and upper stands to view this highlight moment. Never would there be this time again--lost forever but saved in memories and photos.
WATCH OUT WORLD--HERE THEY ARE!
