Here's an OT for ya.

->> So, this year I'm sending my 18 year old daughter off to the University of Oklahoma. She is competing this week for the title of Miss Oklahoma. Two months after she begins classes at that great university, we will welcome into the world my next daughter, Murphy.
Of all the hats I wear, Daddy is my favorite, which is a good thing, because I'll be 62 when Murphy graduates high school.
My cup runneth over.

Cheers

->> Mark, I have the same numbers: 62 at daughter's HS graduation. I wish I had a dollar for each time someone told me how cute my grand-daughter is. One tip, start taking joint supplements now!

->> Of all the things you'll do in your life, being Dad is the best. Even when they're getting married this summer, like mine, and your wallet takles a beating, it's still the best. Nothing else comes close.

->> Congratulations Mark! It is indeed wonderful being a dad. I have you beat by a few years. I'll be 66 when my daughter graduates HS. With 2 granddaughters only a year older than my daughter, it does create some interesting confusion for people. Life is wonderful.

We could start a club.. "snow on the roof.. fire in the fireplace" club... :):):)

->> darn, I'll only be 58 when my daughter graduates ... I guess I'm just a kid. Of course I'll still be only 55 when my son graduates ... well, unless of course they both turn-out to be as smart as I think they are and graduate early.

but then I really could use every day I can get to save for college, take your time kids.

->> Mark,

If it makes you feel any better, I'll only be 50 when my youngest of three graduates high school :0)

You need to tell Polo to start running with you more often so you can keep up!

->> I will be a mere 52 when my youngest, my one and only baby girl, graduates high school. Yet my grandson started school this year and so it goes. I second the thought that the Daddy hat is the one that I wear most proudly.
