In the mail today I received a letter. Normally, I get copious amounts of junk, newsletters, ads and bills and finding a letter was a pleasant surprise. To my continuing surprise the letter was from Palestine, Texas, home to some of my cousins including the daughter of a cousin and the sender of the letter.
My only memory of Brittany is when she was maybe less than a year old and I still lived in Texas. It turns out that her letter was actually a graduation announcement.
And so here I find myself...old! The children of my cousins are graduating from high school. I have turned into one of those people that says, "I remember you when you were just this tall." Soon I'll be sitting in a rocking chair on the porch cursing at the kids stepping on my lawn.
