Birthday Boy

Today is the seventeenth birthday of our Kid2. He is our resident computer geek (he built his own last year), loves playing in the HS band (seen here in his uniform for playing at the home football games), and is along with Kid1, the expert about Monty Python's Flying Circus including The Bishop, Spanish Inquisition and Confuse a Cat. He is a large guy at 6'2", 210 lbs, but not a jock. He is a thinking man, docile, loyal and great kid. I remember when he was born, and of course I was more a bystander and coach than a participant. It was the day after Thanksgiving in 1990, and we are as thankful today as we were then. Today we are mailing documents three colleges he is applying to, and will miss him when he (along with his sister) is at college for half the year. So, happy birthday Kid2, you are one of the few remaining good guys!

he looks so adorably serious in his uniform. I love to hear the band at football games. They bring so much to them revving up the crowd. Actually, I just love hearing a marching band play anywhere.

"No one expects the Spanish Inquisition!" I love Monty Python so Kid 2 and I would get along great!

Best wishes for a happy birthday and many more wonderful years ahead!

Happy, happy birthday to Kid 2...they grow up so quickly. So...is he applying to colleges close to home so he can visit often or does he want to put a little distance between home and college?

I'll thank everyone on behalf of my son.

Joan: He is applying to three in Connecticut, one in Massachusetts and possibly one in NY - Queens, actually!
