Trip 05 2011 - Beverly, Massachusetts

Out of all of my trips, this one today, has been the greatest trip I have been on to date! It is certainly the one I am most proud of!!!

Endicott College, Class of 2011, Cum Laude.


And, standing next to her very proud, 86 year old grandfather; his first grandchild graduating from college, (Something is son never did!).

2007 DL-650 (I gave away in 2012 with 111,000 + miles)

Congratulations to you and your daughter.

Your dad looks quite dashing.

You clean up pretty well yourself.

Thanks Norm.

Russell is a dashing man. Always has been! He stopped downhill skiing at age 83. However, he still cross country skis, along with his number one passion; dancing to "Big Band" music.

Russ is always appreciated out on the dance floor. People gaze from their seats, I think mostly with envy: "Damn, that guy can float across the floor fairly nicely!" Unfortunately, I did not inherit his feet, (feat?), for dancing. But, I did inherit his feet for downhill skiing! I think I created my own set of genes on that one though!

Hip Hip Hooray!



Congratulations to All three generations! She couldn't have done it without you! Those are some mighty big grins y'all are sportin'.

So now that her undergrad years are behind her, what's she thinking she wants to do?

I gotta wonder, too, if your father is the guy I saw a a couple of autumns ago up at The Mount Washington Hotel. We happened to be there when they were having a Roaring Twenties party night and there was this one savvy older man who could dance all the stuff like foxtrot, waltz, the Charleston, etc. and he was scooping babes of ALL ages! The rest of us dummies who avoided ballroom dance classes through the years sat there sheepishly as this guy invited virtually every woman in the place to dance. What a hoot!
