Less than 2 hours before…

Less than 2 hours before my oldest grandson was set to graduate high school, my daughter calls to invite my father and I. Talk about last minute. Family drama as always.

Met his Marine recruiter. He will be going to boot camp in January. He has a summer job. He wants to be an aircraft mechanic.
