Yay! She Did It!!

Many years ago, the Lovely Mona and I met while studying at West Valley Jr. College in Saratoga, California. We got married and quit school. Eventually, I went back to school at night so that I could finish up and then go to seminary. The Lovely Mona finally returned to school a few years ago. Last night she graduated cum laude with a Bachelors in Science (Social Sciences) from Florida State University. We are very, very proud of her! I was cheering and trying to take photos at the same time. The Man the administration wouldn't let me run up front for photos as they had a Professional Photographer (Ooh, pahdon me, Mater; I'm off to play the Grand Piano! A Professional Photographer!), so I did what I could. Please bestow the Lovely Mona, B.S. with glory, laud, and honour in the comments.
Oh yeah, Fun Fact: The Lovely Mona received her B.S. from FSU, and I received my B.S. from USF! We is palendromic!

Processional

Listening to the blahblah
