My awesome son just got an all tuition paid scholarship to Wright State University in Dayton, OH!!

I was beginning to worry about how I would pay for four years of college but he has solved that problem for me.

Not to brag, but I have a great kid!

Congratulations!!!

College is getting downright expensive and expected. I paid for a large chunk of my education with work and scholarships. My parents helped me quite a bit, which I am eternally grateful for, but I was under no illusion that if I wanted an education I would have to be the one that got it.

Don't worry, Todd. I'm sure good ol dad will be helping pay for a lot of other assorted expenses, ie books, gas money, ramen noodles...

That is great sir, it's specially great when they grow up to make you proud of them nowadays with so many obstacles in there path and so many growing up taking the wrong path. It makes you feel good inside that you've done the right things in helping them become good adults. I think we all wish the best for our children and it's great when our dreams come true. You've got a lot to be proud of.

Congratulations to him! And, congratulations to you for raising a smart one.

Good thing, too. School is expensive, and my mom and I were talking a while back. Her and I made about the same salary immediately following college (high 20's). That was a great living for a single person in 1978. Not so great nowadays. So hopefully, he'll emerge debt free and be on his way.

Glad to hear good news!

A wise man once said that sons are like arrows in the father's quiver. You have every right to be proud of your son. Also take some credit for how you raised him and the example you set which led him to this point.cheers

I can whole-heartedly endorse that statement ... I've got 4 adult sons and couldn't possibly be more proud of the way they turned out.
And, although I am all too keenly aware of my own shortcomings and of mistakes I made along the way, I suppose that MrsS and I must have done something right at least some of the time.

If I am to be known for any legacy at all, it is my hope that I am remembered for how well my kids turned out and what sort of citizens they have become ...

Thank you. I couldn't have said it better myself.

Darn kid is too smart by half.

Here we were all waiting for you to have to start making more pipes than Savanelli to put him through school. There went all the deals.

Congratulations to both of you! And Mom too!

Now about that 320 KS author.Todd....

Hell if you could handle the Celtic Morta Dublin, this author should be a piece of cake.

If you remember, a couple years ago, when I reached out to you for the first time, this Author was first on my list.

Neither of us forgot this Author. So here we are again, excited about what we'll create Wink
