Cody or known as 19 in my post has arrived at Paris island

Received the call and heard him reading from the short prepared script. I got in I love you son as he spoke then he hung up no drama as parent on my part.
In thinking or no worries over Cody with world events this was his call to drop out college join the Marine corp and I respect him.

Although Duncan the three year old Golden retriever is like has anyone noticed my one boy left yesterday with a strange guy and isn’t home yet.

Had to stand in line to use a pay phone. My father had been dead a couple of years, so it was my "no drama" mother who took the call. Of course, I was a draftee, not a volunteer, so the situation was a bit different. Your son will be just fine and make you even prouder of him than you already are.
