Hard weekend

Well- this was the big send off for my oldest son. I watched him being driven off into the wild blue yonder on his way to the airplane. He embarks on a 5 year endeavor in the Marine Corps. As a father-I am so proud of him. As a parent-I'm scared for him. As an informed Internet jockey- I'm REALLY worried about him. Oh well-he is almost grown and it's out of my hands now. That's all for now-my brains still topsy-turvy.
Later gators.

Hooo boy. I've been there and it hurts like hell. I made up my mind that I wouldn't cry in front of my son and I didn't. I kept the brave, everything's just fine face in hopes that my attitude would set the stage for everything to come out ok. It did, but not without a lot of gnashing of teeth and lost sleep during the process. You have my complete sympathy.

You have my sympathy too Robert. You are a strong man to let him go and try not to talk him out of it. I don't have that strength...I'd have begged and cajoled and pleaded.
