Phew, it took Ione's phone call to alert me to your new status as a Marine Dad! Wow, who wouldda thought. As I type, Ben is getting ready to jump out of an airplane to complete jump school training. Not sure what's next...How about that book. I haven't read it cover to cover, I just look for Ben's parts.
Well, enjoy the ride from the other side of the fence. You will learn what it's like to chew your nails up to the elbows wondering what that son of yours is doing. On the G & L, I have a little pang of sorrow to know that I probably won't get back before it is closed. Good thing, I make delicious crab cakes myself.
Anyway, that is most excellent news. Your son must have been quite impressed with Dad's accomplishment to follow in your footsteps. That's for the scoop.
