I started taking the last appointment of the day for one doctor. He is at least an hour late everyday for his first appointment.

My Bubba Travels

Post by Bubba » Mon Apr 16, 2012 20:18

I'm in South Africa at the moment, visiting my daughters.

Internet access is not as easy as back home, but I'm having a good time; will reply and post more after I return next week.

Anyone want to see some photos let me know, will post some later. :smile:

Does nitrite work against ebola too? (How's the sausage over there?)

Phew, I'm back in the wonderful US of A.
A mountain of work waiting for me, and a lot of reading to catch up with on this forum.

Below are some of the first photos of part of my family, more will follow on the weekend. The primary purpose of this visit was to be with my eldest daughter and her husband for the birth of their second baby, my second grandchild.

As said, enjoy these and I will post more this weekend. It's a loooong flight, 16-1/2 hours :shock: , need to get some decent sleep first.

My eldest and youngest daughter, I bought them flowers because to me they are the most beautiful ladies (along with my third daughter) in the world.

Now wait a minute! Bubba, I thought that you were a rational man but you left those beautiful babies in South Africa and moved here? Glad you are back, but really?

What a great family! Beautiful, just beautiful. Wow, I could just steal that gorgeous Lea. She is so cute with those rosy cheeks. Good to have you back pal!

Best Wishes,

I won't speak ill of another country but in the USA if you keep a low profile you can live for years without an encounter with anyone in law enforcement. For my money this is the best place to live.

I love the South African country side and places to see. And I also love to visit my daughters.
Then whenever I return home to the USA I am reminded of how good we have it here. Those amenities we live with every day here are not found in all other countries.

Graduations

Post by vagreys » Sun May 13, 2012 09:30

I could not be prouder of my daughters. They have become strong, independent, intelligent young women. Everything they achieved, from their scholarships to graduation, yesterday, they have made possible by their own hard work.

Kate, Virginia Commonwealth University Honors College
BS in Forensic Science (Forensic Biology)
BS in Psychology (Pre-Graduate)
Minor in Chemistry
Magna cum laude with University Honors

Kate will attend the University of Denver Graduate School of Professional Psychology, in the fall, to begin study for a Master of Arts in Forensic Psychology.

Tamsin, Virginia Commonwealth University School of Business
BS in Business
Minor in Economics
Minor in Psychology
One class remaining to complete her degree, and she begins that one in a week.

I do not apologize for bragging. Their achievements deserve my acknowledgement. Outstanding, both of them.

Tom, My most sincere congratulations and admiration. Please extend our highest regards to your daughters. I'm sure they will agree though, that their education began at home years ago under the close supervision of "ol' dad". Tom, I'd say you've earned bragging rights. Congrats ol' pal.

Best Wishes,
Chuckwagon

It is wonderful when your kids turn out so well. It seems to have a little to do with parenting and an enormous amount to do with the children themselves. Some kids are just born to excell and some are difficult from day one. You and your wife are most fortunate people and may be justly proud of your daughters. Wish them both well for me.
