Steppin' Out


It was 75 years ago that MGM signed the incredible Judy Garland to its roster of stars. As she steps out with her fellow MGM stars (Clark Gable, Shirley Temple and Mickey Rooney) I too am stepping out for the weekend as we celebrate our oldest daughter's graduation from high school, stepping out into a new direction or, at least, a new school. Let both the pomp and circumstance begin.

One of these is not like the others. Which is not a knock on anybody, but one of them does seem a bit out of place to me.

I think he's the MGM chaperone, Bill. I've seen him before somewhere...

Congratulations, Greg! I'm still a few (7) years away from a weekend like yours, but I'm looking forward to it (I think.) It must be a pretty grand feeling seeing your little beauties growing up so well. Give her my best.

Oh yeah...congratulations! I meant to say that, too, but, er, my keyboard froze up. Yeah.

Greg said...

Thanks Dennis (and, uh, Bill). Just a quick check-in here before getting ready to go. Big celebration tonight and tomorrow and most importantly, for anyone who happens to be attending the graduation ceremony tonight, the speech given by the class Vice President (that's our graduate): It was written by me. Just an fyi.

Thanks again Dennis and Bill.

Congratulations and a very pleasing foto to herald the event!
Clark and the "little people"..only they were as tall as him on the screen!

Love this pic, and congrats!

Greg said...

Thanks very much Christopher and Jake! She has now been graduated, as the antiquated grammar demands it be written, and today now involves a day long preparation of a feast to celebrate the occasion.

Congratulations to your daughter and I hope that you enjoy the celebratory weekend!

Greg said...

Thanks, Pat! It's been a great weekend so far.
