Happy 18th Birthday Scott


Today, I’m stepping down off my usual soapbox to wish my younger son a “Happy Birthday.” He’s officially a “man” according to the Selective Service System. Later this afternoon he’ll register to vote in the upcoming elections. He has a weekend job as well as an internship at the Alabama Supreme Court. We love him for the outspoken, passionate young man he is. His favorite teacher described him as a “breath of fresh air.” That’s Scott to a T. You regular readers have seen his photography and know all about his awards from the fair. Next year he’ll be off to college. I’ll miss him then, but today we celebrate a young man on the cusp of all that life offers.

Happy 18th Birthday to Scott! I'm sure you'll miss him when he goes off to college Sheila. That's a good photo. Is that Alabama in the background?

Naomi,
I'll pass along your good wishes. No, that's downtown Chicago in the background. We lived in Illinois for over 10 years.

Happy Birthday, Scott!! Roll Tide!

Hi Rosemary,
I'll pass along your good wishes. Glad you think he has on the right t-shirt. Down here in Montgomery we are outnumbered by the Auburn folks. A part of me wishes at least one of my sons would go to my Ama Mater. Bama is one of the schools he's looking at, but I think he'd do better at a smaller college.

Thanks for visiting and I think you are doing a great job with collecting new blogs for the Village.

Alma Mater. I need to proofread better.

Happy belated bday, Scott! I was going to say "Roll Tide", but it looks like Rosemary beat me to it, so I'll just say congrats in Norwegian - "Gratulerer med dagen!"

I tell him Tim. I'm learning a lot of new words. Remembering them is the problem.
