Cleaning up after last night's Graduation party.

Left over beer put in the fridge
Ice chests emptied and drying in the sun
Folding chairs and table cloths returned to the party rental place
Circuit breaker for the AC compressor replaced
Recycling sorted and taken in for $$

All that's left is to fix the garden gate that was broken, fold up the tables and put them in the garage, and wake up the Grad so he'll get to work on time (closing shift at the marina)

I've just learned a new word: excrescence. I've got to work that into my vocabulary.

ex·cres·cence

noun
a distinct outgrowth on a human or animal body or on a plant, especially one that is the result of disease or abnormality.
synonyms: growth, lump, swelling, nodule, outgrowth
"an excrescence on his leg"
an unattractive or superfluous addition or feature.
"removing the excrescences of later interpretation"

synonyms: eyesore, blot on the landscape, monstrosity
"the new buildings were an excrescence"

Many, many moons ago, when my oldest daughter was still a baby, I wrote alternate lyrics to "Part of that World" from Disney's The Little Mermaid that focused on diaper issues. My daughter was telling a co-worker (who has a child in diapers) about it the other day and apparently made it sound good enough that he wanted a copy. After a bit of searching, I managed to find it and just sent her a copy.

While looking for it, I found something that I wrote for my youngest daughter's birth-mom about a month before my daughter was born. My daughter's birthday is later this week. Her birth-mom died last year. I'll be giving her a copy of what I wrote.

I may need to try to publish an anthology of poetry that I wrote years ago. Some of it is pretty good. Some of it is horrendous.

So, I asked my wife, "how would you like to be harassed?". "How would you like a fat lip?, she replied.
She's always been one for straight answers.

I’m working on finishing up a science degree so that I can continue toward a graduate degree in a science. Meanwhile, I also need to get my kids through school too. Nutz.

The nut doesn't fall far from the tree.

Daughter #2 recently graduated and started a new job as a designer at a corporate engineering center of a fortune 500 company. She just sent me this text.
