    I just got back from Iowa State University at Ames, Iowa where my son just graduated at the head of his class , Magna Com Laude in three majors. I am quite proud of him. He's an outdoorsman; loves to hunt and fish. He majored in forestry, Agricultural business and Agricultural research and Development. Smart kid. He's home for a couple of weeks then off to Kansas City to start a new job as an arborist.

    Congrats to your son, used to live in ames..moved roughly a year back. Miss the great restaurants, but like living in the sticks for shooting purposes.

    My old college trig teacher called arborists and carpenters "tree butchers". Just thought I would share. Kind of funny to me, since my dad was a carpenter. :)

    Damn over achievers! They go the extra mile just to make them folks that prefer to sit on their arses and expect gub'ment handouts to look bad.
