    What's next?

    Congratulations!! If I were still in the area I would have given you guys a wave driving through town. I agree with the others. I don't know where the time has gone.

    Great photo! Everyone involved should be proud.

    I worked my way through school back when it was easily paid for. It took me six years, and looking back on it, I shouldn't have left so soon. Of all the gigs I had, only my tech editing internship required a degree. But I did OK with my Arts and Letters sheepskin.

    I have a whole list of caveats saved up for the next time around, if any.

    Edited to add: the "steve" in this article is the author's friend.

    There is no hope for this generation.

    Get off my lawn.

    My thought exactly. One more thing to talk to my son about --- DON'T co-sign a loan for anyone, regardless of how good a "friend" they are!
