    Good for him. Was he proud of himself? I'm sure it was nice having them all together.

    He was proud - but for me - it was bittersweet. Things have always come so easily to him and he takes it for granted. We're talking about a kid who got a "C" in a his "college jogging class" beating BOTH of his brothers who take running pretty seriously. But there were no hard feelings! Just a lot of male joshing and posturing...

    I guess it reinforces the reality that he has been blessed with many talents and that he has always been able to accomplish wonderful things when he puts his mind to if we could just get that mind clear of pot smoke...maybe he could find something worthwhile to focus upon...

    I need a side of whine with my crow LOL

    I understand bittersweet. Hopefully as he matures he'll come to realize how blessed he is and use his blessings to their full potential. At only 20, he still has some growing up to do.

    If he took it for granted, He wouldn't feel quite so proud of himself. So maybe he is growing up a bit?

    OMG!!!!! WOW! Congratulations! I like Star's idea, what goes best with-crow? Let's see, it's poultry, so I'd say white wine.

    Calling Crow poultry is a wee stretch - but she is right!!!!! White wine would be the correct choice.
