A selection of words from my vast vocabulary, including the ubiquitous "the," the always versatile "and," and the more obscure "incontrovertible," arranged in frequently meaningful, sometimes profound, yet often pedestrian sentences and statements, designed with one goal in mind-- that being, to communicate; keeping in mind the oft-used bromide, "Never use two words when one will do the same job as two or more words would have done, unless you just want to take up space and sound important," which is, I must concede, too often a secret objective of mine indeed. And yet, now, the secret is out.

The boys

Quickly, here's some pictures of Keaton and Brant, taken recently:

Here's my oldest, Keaton, a week or so ago in front of my place. He just got his Master's degree, and he'll be attending Boston College in the fall, working on his law degree.

Brant just graduated from UP. He'll be attending U of O this fall, also working on a law degree.

Where have I been?

Oh, I've been around... Just doing the same ol' stuff.

Brant's graduating from UP on Sunday. If you'll allow me a moment to brag, this year he had a 4.0 and for all his four years there he got all "A's" and only three or four "A-minuses," which brings his cumulative g.p.a. to just under a 4.0. He's such a great kid! I'm very proud. He's graduating with a bachelor's degree, a double major, in philosophy and political science. He's going to be attending graduate school in the fall, to get his law degree. This weekend, he's going to move in with me and live @ Nine Forward for the summer.

Speaking of bragging, allow me just one more paragraph. Keaton is also graduating this month. He's getting his master's degree (a double) in city planning and government administration from USC. You know, I don't remember what his g.p.a. is, but I would think it's a 4.0 or some such disgustingly high number. He's going to be in San Diego for the summer, and then he's going to attend Boston College in the fall, working on his law degree, just like his younger brother.

A dad couldn't be more pleased with his sons than I am; and not just because of their academic achievements. They're both just great guys-- well adjusted (who knows how that happened) and just cool dudes. Oh, and they both have really great girlfriends. Yeah, I'm proud of 'em.
