The End is Near..............
2012 has definitely been an eventful year. In April I turned 57, In October DKW & I celebrated our 3rd anniversary, and DKW had one of those birthday thingys in November. Those are some annual events.
During the summer my oldest son and family moved to Newark, NJ. It will hopefully only be for a year. His wife has been placed in a position with the Newark School District. I don't know all the specifics but its some type of residency she has to work out before her doctorate is validated and she can hang her own shingle out. Nothing against Jersey - just hate having my grandson so far away. My youngest son is in the Coast Guard and was promoted to Chief (E-7) on Dec. 1st and on Dec. 14th my oldest daughter graduated from East Miss. Community College. My youngest completed her ACT and hopefully will be starting college in the New Year. My middle daughter just completed another college semester in Portland, Or. (Her 3rd or 4th). She continues to carry a 4.0 average.
On a non-personal note (but things that do interest me) - Miss. State completed an 8-4 football season and will be playing in the Gator Bowl on New Year's Day. And yes, DKW and I will be attending. Go DOGS! Starkville High started the football season 1-3, but went on a tear and never lost again. They finished the year 12-3 and are the 2012 Mississippi 5A State Football Champions. Next year though, we move to 6A. Things get tougher! Go Jackets! On the Division II College scene, Valdosta State (where my wife got her Masters Degree) won that level's National Championship this past Saturday (15th). I follow them and Bloomsburg (where she got her undergrad degree). I tell foks I'm an alumni by marriage. :-)
For the most part, the year has been positive and I try to keep that outlook. I hope 2013 brings everyone much success and I will be back to blog in January.
Everyone have a great day! Great week! Great Month! and Great Year!
