Dr. Bob's minions tire away endlessly to help the good Doctor in the name of science,
but with what little downtime they get they would like to share with you fine people! 

Graduation Blues

By Richard


Greetingsfrom the Musings room.  I thought I would remin-, reminis-, I thought I would share a memory tied to a recent event I attended.

I graduated from Chillicothe High School(some would say I escaped, others that I was given a work release but that is another topic for another time) in June of 1977. Yes. Almost 4 decades ago I was released into the general public with practically no adult supervision or idea what real life really meant. Sure, like most of my classmates I had passed the required material to prove I was capable of being a practicing adult in a cut throat world. I would have been much happier if they had told me how much practice it would take!!

  After foundering around for years, following life's little clues and setbacks, I eventually became a (relatively) sane adult with good friends, a home and a job. It took years to shake the d-baggery I had been saddled with, to calm the storming temper and fine tune the wonderful sense of humor (many would argue I still need work on that last one) I share with friends and strangers alike.

  What, you may ask (really, go ahead and ask so I can tell you) prompted this little detour into my sub conscious? Well, one of our own, the spritely C/A/M (name withheld to protect the easily embarrassed) graduated Westerville Central last weekend! The Gilberts, Scott Watson and I were happy to attend her graduation ceremonies and congratulate the young lady. It was a lovely ceremony –only briefly marred by inconsiderate parents who blew air horns for their grad-with some good speeches, few songs and a good pace. But this is not a movie review.

Congratulations Skully on surviving High Scholl and having a graduation ceremony without the mayor transforming into a giant demonic snake! Although that may have livened up the proceedings……..
