Michelle’s Graduation, etc.

This weekend was a blur of family, friends, and celebration. Family came down from Yakima and beyond for the graduation party on Friday and the commencement on Saturday. All in all, the weekend was a blast, and now I’m married to a J.D.

Friday’s party was nearly a bust because it had been raining most of the day. Fortunately the 2 months of yard work paid off because the clouds parted and we were able to play croquet and enjoy the yard and deck to their fullest. Chandra and Michelle – the hostesses – spent much of the day frantically preparing food, and I helped by grilling tortillas, zucchini and squash, and a flank steak. Both of our parents helped here and there by cleaning or cutting, which made it more enjoyable for us. It was quite a bit of fun, and good to see these hectic students happy.

The commencement was pretty cool, though took a while with all the graduates that walked. The guest speaker was New Mexico Attorney General Patricia Madrid, who eloquently warned of the challenges that modern life is having on civil rights, environmental protection, and generally on the future of democracy. It might have been a shocking speech at other schools, but was both time and place appropriate.

But now its Monday and she’s started her bar prep courses, and is sporting an upgraded iBook and a new gmail account.

  1. What’s wrong with Hotmail? Oh…yeah…it sucks.

    Personally, I couldn’t be restricted to a web interface for all e-mail. I love my desktop clients. What do you do when the ‘net is down?
