  • You Are the Guy

    You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes.
    You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.
    You're on your own. And you know what you know.
    You are the guy who'll decide where to go.
    -Dr. Seuss

    You all remember my brother Billy, right? You remember how - just about this time last year - he helped me drive all 2742 miles from Pennsylvania to San Diego. How we met Jen and he decided that maybe I wasn't completely crazy (only half) about this blog thing. And how we all wanted him to learn how to knit. Well, he hasn't exactly learned how to knit (yet). But it is time to celebrate anyway.Billy graduated! Congratulations!

    There are few people for whom I will take a single day of leave and fly cross-country - and back - to see them walk across a stage, but this guy is definitely one of them. And even if I can never convince him to do his own knitting, he's been developing an appreciation for knitted goods recently. Maybe we'll wear him down with hats and scarves and finally convince him to sign on for a sweater one of these years.

    Congratulations to your brother! Even if he doesn't learn to knit, it's nice to knit for a brother who appreciates it.

    Congratulations to Billy! And to you too - for having a family that you'd fly across the country for -- that's a treasure!

    Just saw Billy last night, and he seemed completely relaxed and ready for the "real world." I'm expecting him to adjust much better than I did :)

    Congrats to Billy! The whole family looks so happy and proud, as they should be.

    You really are quite the jetsetter lately, aren't you? Lots to time on planes to knit at least.
