My brother Jerry graduated from the University of Texas today with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Public Relations, and Minors in Business Foundations (whatever that is) and Mechanical Engineering. After the ceremony (an amazingly short one hour, start to finish), we all headed back to our place to celebrate, accompanied by the excellent food that Debra prepared and my PR Porter, which also was excellent. My older brother arrived from Arkansas, my sister from Wisconsin, Uncle Ken and Aunt Amy from San Diego, cousin Marty from Denver, and a handful of Jerry's friends from the University. Most people took off for 6th Street at about 10:00, leaving Debra, my sister, and me here to clean up and crash. Parties are fun, but I'm glad we don't do them too often.
