Freshman Dropoff - 2009

  Fallowing my daughter's Graduation from High School, she went to Europe, went to the Beach, hung out with her boyfriend, and then went to College. She is a freshman at a medium sized college in east-central United States. Click for Larger Image

  The left side of the room starting to shape up. Note the little silver computer under the $60 hutch. Also note the pictures aligned on top of one another. They hung with 3M strips. These last about one hour. Then the pictures fall to the ground and the glass breaks. Click to Enlarge

  Daughter on her way to school after saying goodbye to B-Friend. Note his wry smile. I think that's cause he had to ride back home with the 'rents. Good Luck, kid!. Click to Enlarge

  I wasn't there This one can't read so she can't go to college. She also has a tiny mouth so can't eat giant, three-patty burgers. But she wishes her Magic on success in the 2009/2010 Freshman Year!
