Yay. The best 2 months begin!

School's out for summer! We graduated the class of 2009 last night. Now I have all this free time!

To tell the truth, I don't really like summer break. You begin to feel disconnected. I have the same feelings about it as holidays. I'd rather be working. In the summer, I'm home and often trying to find things to do.

Also, graduation is depressing. I have to say goodbye to students I have enjoyed watching and working with for years, and now I will only see them occasionally, if at all. It's like going to a funeral. Oh well, that's the only constant in life. Change. Congratulations class of '09. Now you are not seniors anymore. You're freshmen. Ain't life grand?

-- come to Lubbock. We have wind!

Never Argue with a Woman

My wife sent me this message. I think it's her in a boat. It was too funny, and I had to post it. Enjoy.

Never Argue with a Woman

One morning, the husband returns the boat to their lakeside

cottage after several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap.

Although not familiar with the lake, the wife decides to take the boat out. =20

She motors out a short distance, anchors, puts her feet up,

and begins to read her book.

The peace and solitude are magnificent.

Along comes a Fish and Game Warden in his boat.

He pulls up alongside the woman and says, 'Good
morning, Ma'am. What are you doing?'

'Reading a book,' she replies, (thinking, 'Isn't that obvious?')

'You're in a Restricted Fishing Area,' he informs her.

'I'm sorry, officer, but I'm not fishing. I'm reading.'

'Yes, but I see you have all the equipment.
For all I know you could start at any moment.
I'll have to take you in and write you up.'

'If you do that, I'll have to charge you with

sexual assault,' says the woman.

'But I haven't even touched you,' says the Game Warden.

'That's true, but you have all the equipment.
For all I know you could start at any moment.'

'Have a nice day ma'am,' and he left.

Never argue with a woman who reads.

It's likely she can also think.
