R_I - yes sir, sounds crazy but not as crazy as opening the door to a police officer come to tell you about the accident that killed you son or daughter. Anyway, most of the kids graduating from HS are 18 yrs old and that is the legal limit here in Alberta at least. Don't know about the other provinces. I personally think it is too young and should have stayed at 21 buttttttttt, that's the way it is.

We will go to a HS graduation party for a niece tomorrow. Then another HS graduation party for a nephew next weekend. No college grads this year.

I'm always excited to get KU graduation over with! All those relatives/friends coming into town for graduation and parties never helps the traffic/dining situation in Lawrence. I'll just avoid Lawrence for now and look forward to it being a little "less" this summer. :)

Yeh, I am excited about a graduation next weekend. My grandson, Tyler graduates and we are motoring down, picking up his mom in Calgary and then on to Lethbridge at the very southern edge of Alberta. It will be great, the last of the boys to graduate. I want to tell you what they do for grad here. The exercises are in the morning. Then a grand dinner and parade of grads, a dance then Safe Grad. What the heck is safe grad, you may ask. You may also have the grad custom of bush parties. That is what the kids do here. They find a place out in the country, could be a small camp grounds and they have their boozy parties that go on till dawn. Dangerous affairs they truly are. So in Lethbridge the parents get together, a few agree to supervize, get the booze, barbeques and food, rent a bus and take the kids to their bush site. The school knows about this and looks the other way. Better this way than the usual number of kids that get injured or killed. My son in law accompanied his older sons bush party a couple of years ago. He is a burly, ex hockey player and quite capable of busting up an altercation should one arise. I think this is a good idea. Anyway, I am looking forward to the trip next weekend. I hope KU grad is a great, safe affair for all.

Now that you have finished college do the world a favor and kick back and coast for the next 50 years. Most the trouble in the world is caused by those highly motivated people who just couldn't leave well enough alone.

Yes. It means they're all leaving soon. What a nice place this little town will be. Even if it is only temporary.
