Dont celebrate on the 10 yard line. They are coming back and they are bringing more with 'em!

:eyes2:
I'm thrilled that mine settled in NY.........and that all 3 were able to be on their own right out of college.

The games not over yet :footplayer:
Nope.....the nest will stay empty.

Of course, they visit and bring those awesome brookie grandbabies around quite regularly.

Mine graduated college at 20 and 21 and got jobs . The key is to enroll in programs that lead to good jobs upon graduation.
Excellent.

It's so gratifying to see the spawn stretch out those wings that we helped them to develop.

I am also very happy that mine have settled near Long Island.

Mine are both on Long Island. One in Nassau one in Suffolk. Mixed breeds do quite well with education.

Nice area. My oldest nephew finally tied the knot and settled in Long Island, a block away from the water.

I hope it’s on the north shore on a high bluff . The south shore and parts of the north shore low to the Sound can be rough with Hurricanes like Sandy .

North Shore, near an inlet. They love to kayak.

Indeed..........with the excellent, and very expensive, public education that Long Islanders provide for our kids......it's awesome to see them, "filthy mixed breed" and otherwise, succeed.

My three all reside in the five boroughs.

kc....what do you think about the SUNY system being tuition-free for students from families who make $125,000 or less?

If one can afford it, Long Island is a good place to live and raise a family.

It would be nice for middle class families. It wouldn’t have helped me any though. I say lower the tuition to 3,000 a year . Pell grants will take care of that for the poor. The rest could work their way through college like many of us did.

Working while in school was/is required in my family.

Enjoy this awesome day on Long Island.
