Re: Gonna see the Atlantic!!

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] One of the kids worked at TACO BELL just long enough to find out how little a minumum wage job will pay for. She had an apt with another girl, and they couldn't even go to the movies they were so broke. The one graduating Monday has a BS, MS, PhD and now a Law Degree from Yale. She has always been a self-starter, even as a tot.....will be teaching at Harvard this Fall. One son goofed off and played ski bum till he finally decided to go to Fiber Opitcs school and has since fallen into an industry just crying for good people...the other son is an electrician and is specializing in putting central vacs in new yuppie mansions in cyber-rich Seattle area. So we are two for four as far as college goes, although technical school does count a little. Starvation is a great motivator, and so is driving junk.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

Re: Gonna see the Atlantic!!

Dave , I hope you enjoy looking at the Atlantic (it's way too cold to go swimming this time of year). I finaly got to see what the Pacific looked liked in 1988 while visiting with my cousin in Seattle. I've also been fortunate to see the Gulf of Mexico (at Panama City Beach, Fla.) and one of the Great Lakes (Ontario at Toronto) in the last 5 years.

Congrats on your kid's graduation. Best Wishes for the future.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Gonna see the Atlantic!!

Hey Dave,
If you plan on taking a little trip south along the East coast, check out Atlantic City or Ocean City, MD. If you ever make it that way, I'll be glad to get the tab, or at least try to[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]. Some OT would be in order for that tab.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img].
Glad to here about the college!! I didn't have the support from my folks. They didn't want me to go to USC for electrical engineering, so I got stuck here at good ole TSU. I guess they were worried about the "riots" in LA since I graduated that same year. I would have just brought the Sig 226 with me.
Oh, well. TSU was rated in the top something in Playboy for schools with the hottest female population. Were they ever right!!![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
Have fun while you're over here. CT is nice!!

Re: Gonna see the Atlantic!!

<font color=purple>Sounds like a great time. The Northeast (not counting PA, NJ, & DE) is one spot (along with WA, AK, & Hawaii) I've never been in the states, but would love to see some day.</font color=purple>
