Gee, this school year is just about over. Kids are looking forward to graduations, proms, summer vacations, summer jobs and more.
Not all students are eighteen and under. Many students today are adults, even senior citizens. Some are training in hopes of getting off unemployment, some just because they want to continue learning and school is the venue they've chosen to do so.
There are students like one of my daughters who have a full time job, children at home to raise, responsibilities in her church and still is a full time student. She will walk the first week in June for her masters, and is in process of taking her CPA exams. We're so proud of her.
Perhaps there's a student in your family or circle of friends of whom you feel the same pride and respect for their accomplishments. If you do, please let them know how you feel. There are so many destructive choices they could make, but they've chosen the good part.
What about you? Want to go back to school? Go ahead, stop putting it off. Time doesn't wait, it keeps on moving forward and so should we.

We love old stuff and spend lots of time hunting here and there. It is our pleasure to share some of our finds with you.
