Last one to get a new car. We traded in David’s 2011 Nissan Altima (117k miles) for a new 2019 Jeep Cherokee. That makes 3 white cars and 2 black cars in the family. Jane and I wanted to give all of our kids a head start in life with no school debt and not worrying about their car when they start out their lives after college.
How is David doing in his freshman year at A&M? He’s doing great! This video illustrates how good A&M is at making students feel welcome and helping them fit in.
David had his first Lacrosse game vs Texas State Friday night. They won but It would not have mattered to the more than 30 friends that showed up to cheer him on!
These friends are from his Freshman Reaching Excellence in Engineering club (F.R.E.E). Their website describes themselves as: “The organization serves to create events that promote the unity and leadership of all freshman engineers. “. I would have to say, mission accomplished! F.R.E.E. is just one of several freshman leadership organizations under the umbrella of the Freshman Leadership Organization (FLO)
Did David score the winning goal? Did they win the Lonestar Alliance conference championship? No, one of their own was competing and they came to cheer him on! That’s it. What a fine group of young adults!
In your face Cassidy and David. I told you that my answer of “Hippotamus” was right for the Scategories category “Things you are afraid of”.
From The Straight Dope:
“The hippo, found today throughout sub-Saharan Africa, is considered by many experts, explorers and Africans to be the most dangerous animal in Africa (not counting the mosquito). They’ve all killed way more people than Africa’s lions have. (A few rogue tigers have killed a lot of people too, but they live in India, not Africa.) The hippo is extremely aggressive, unpredictable and unafraid of humans, upsetting boats sometimes without provocation and chomping the occupants with its huge canine teeth and sharp incisors. Most human deaths occur when the victim gets between the hippo and deep water or between a mother and her calf.”
