And with his sisters.

  7. I add my congratulations and my very best wishes. Yes, he's a butterbar, but he'll always be the "Wing Commander" as well.

  20. My goodness, how your girls have grown! I remember when they left home and in a reply to something I mentioned, you said "you have to let them go.:) Sniff, sniff....

  21. Outstanding, CW! May he stay safe and fly high! I was just in Charleston, it's a terrific place, although starting to get a bit humid now. If he likes BBQ, Lewis BBQ has Texas style brisket and sausage that is pretty darn good. But there are a LOT of great restaurants in that town. I also went to Fort Johnson and stood on the approximate place where the first mortars kicked off the Late Unpleasantness by firing against Ft. Sumter. Lots of history in that area if he likes that sort of thing.
