Congratulations, Tony!

Last night Mr. Tony graduated from college. He is the first in his immediate family to do so (third out of 17 cousins, so far). It is a huge accomplishment for him, owning his own home and having to work multiple jobs, at times, to make it through. It was a lesson in self-reliance, and will power. Lessons that, I am certain, will be more valuable to him than college algebra.

Our hats are off to you, Tone! You're super-duper!
Tony's mama, Aunt Mo-mo, so proud!

"I'm seein' double. We got trouble!"
Mama Mel, my cousin and Tony's sister,
and Aunt Mo-mo
were sportin' the same festive purse.


Jill Ree and I were wearin' the same color kicks!
Mustard gold for Fontbonne University!
We both graduated from there, too!

After the ceremony,
Jilly and I gorged on chocolate-raspberry
cake from Whole Foods.

Finished off with our own
Baily's, coffee, and whipped cream concoction.
Double yummy!

ps did i mention that
the big man on campus
also graduated with a 3.71.
wowza! what a guy!

Peace out!
