My oldest Son dropped out of school two years ago. The reason he gave was so he could take care if his girlfriend. I accused him of being a crack head and it was just ugly and we both said things that we regretted. Well today he asked me out to lunch. While we got caught up I asked how far along his girl was. He proceeded to tell me that he went to the community collage, got a diploma, not a GED but an honest to goodness diploma. He also told me that he enlisted in the Navy, and that he will be getting married after boot camp. And no, his girl is not pregnant. I did have to eat some crow, but I enjoyed it, and I am happy that he will be leaving that dead end shit hole.
