THE RIP


Believe me, the photo does not portray the talent for dissipating (i.e. to be extravagant or dissolute in the pursuit of pleasure) that this young man has. It almost matches my own.
He graduates high School next week.
He wants to be a Rock Star.
For his Senior Project he wrote the lyrics to a song and conmposed the music for it and played and sang in front of a live audience.
He actually wrote 3 songs. The one I liked was "Free the Tadpoles" but he tells me he went with one called "We Have a Breakthrough". This may be quite fitting for him, as he has made some big changes the last several months and has stayed out of the usual trouble he often found himself in.
In addition to having inherited my wicked ways he also inherited a less than polished version of my own bullfrog voice along with tone-deafness so this was a major accomplishement.
He and I have had our differences, but I am very proud of him!

Congratulations! It seems that he has come a ways.

Tone-deafness MY ASS!!! That boy has more tone perception in his left thumbnail than I have in my entire body. I'd kill to have an eighth of the musical talent he has.

Congratulations to both of you!
