I believe it was 29 years ago today that I graduated from high school. My family loved me for my short ceremony, having transferred from a school of 1200 to one of 200 between junior and senior year. A class of 36 (if I recall correctly) can graduate in 45 minutes, including songs!
Over the weekend, I attended the first of three graduations on my spring calendar. My baby sister was honored with her Doctor of Education degree. It was very nice and, even though I wasn't supposed to, I whooped as she was hooded. It's a big deal! Now she can relax and have her baby. Next up, the high school graduations of my niece and second daughter!
We had a lovely dinner at an Italian restaurant in Madison on Saturday night. Behind us, there were four tables pushed together topped with two very large boards and there were at least 20 people seated around for "traditional spaghetti on a board." The "spaghetti" was in the middle and everyone just served themselves. I never heard of this and neither had anyone I was with. My mother just couldn't help herself and said, to the woman nearest her, "So, you don't use plates??" Ann, your Boar is Italian, is this a tradition anyplace other than Madison, Wisconsin? What's up?
There was so little knitting done over the weekend that I have absolutely no business bringing it up. However, you may recall that I received a gift certificate to an LYS for Mother's Day and I just received news that the shop is being sold and there's a big inventory reduction sale -- it starts today!
