The Band is All Together Again

Postby loomixguy » Sun Aug 17, 2014 5:26 pm

Daughter #1 flew into Omaha late yesterday afternoon. Daughter #2 picked her up and they rolled into the yard a little before 10pm last night. This is the first we've seen of Number 1 since early May, and the first time all the kids have been under one roof since then. I enjoy the relative peace & quiet with only the boy here, but it is nice to have the band back together for a few days.

#1 spent the summer in Washington, DC, as an intern for Senator Deb Fischer (R), Nebraska. She had the time of her life and enjoyed every minute of it, and brought back the neatest souvenirs you could imagine. She became best friends with another of Fischer's interns, who turned out to be the daughter of one of my old college buddies. It is truly a small world. And, although Harry Reid is holding over 350 bills on his desk and not acting on them, I can assure you that although the D's were "doing nothing", the R's weren't. She was busy, busy, busy the entire summer.

I would highly recommend the experience to young people & their parents, and encourage the youngsters to apply if they're interested at all in politics.

No matter how good you are, the pigeon is just going to s*** on the chessboard and strut around like it won anyway.

Sounds like you raised her right! :D :wink:

Nice you are all together again for awhile. Those days will become
less and less, so enjoy them when you have the opportunity.

Thanks, FH! The Boss & I tried to raise them "right". :wink:

It is nice having them all home...its been awhile since the house was filled with as much laughter as it was last night. Unfortunately, I am leaving this morning for Loveland, CO, for most of the week, so I'll miss out on all the "togetherness", as the girls will go back to Lincoln before I return home. But they'll be back for Labor Day. I can't believe how blessed I am with my bride & my kids, especially after seeing what others have went through.

Life can be incredibly good.

They're here again, and this time it hurts. #1 was to pick up her car here, to start her new part time job for the Senator at the Lincoln office next Tuesday. I had the boys check her car out & we found a couple of minor problems, then a couple more, then we determined the heads were warped. The car isn't worth putting another dime into, so the Boss & I decided to let her take our Navigator back with her on Monday.

Which means....I gotta buy Mama some different wheels.....and the tuition bills are due September 12. How wonderful!

Headed to the money store (bank), hat in hand..... :mad:

Does the word "groveling" fit? I know, because I've been there. :wink:

The knees are still intact in my jeans, tuition checks are going out this morning, and Mama got her a 2012 model automobile.

NOBODY drives that F550 but me....nobody.

good grief, this sounds like a challenge...."Captain Midnight" may have to make a trip to Cather-Land and try to steal a vehicle ......
