My Personal Physician

We are very excited this morning! We just learned that College Kid has aced her state and national board exams and is one step closer to being a full-fledged veterinarian. Now all she has to do is get her diploma next week and she can hang her shingle! The only thing we're concerned about is that she's hanging her shingle in Maryland. That's an awful long way from Oklahoma, and a fair piece to travel to see my own personal physician. I'm thinking webcam. Oh well, it's only for one year in a specialty clinic, then she'll be back (we hope!!!). She just finished an three-week stint at a veterinary hospital in sunny California, so before this is over she'll have visited both coasts and the Gulf of Mexico areas. College Kid should have been born with wings, she travels so much. And if she ever packs her bags and heads north for Canada, we're goin' with her!

So very cool! Congrats to your College Kid. We believe some of the nicest hoomans we've ever met are vet-doctors. That means your College Kid must be nice and smart, too! (She looks nice!)

So... maybe she can specialize in wings.... and help you grow some. You're right, Maryland is a long ways away (but we know it's a great place... we've got a good wirey friend there.)

Betcha you're full of wags and smiles!
We are, for ya!
