Thank you for joining us this past week! Especial thanks to Peter and Ken for their guest posts. We have a few more guest posts in the queue, including a possible review of Affinity Photo.
I hate to say it, but I will not be joining Peter in Cuba for his Spring workshop. Things are just a bit too tight. However, I'm sure some of you will share my feelings when I tell you I recently wrote my last check for college tuition! The feelings are not just relief—they're mostly of pride in my son Alexander H. Johnston for doing such a fine job with college. After working blue-collar jobs for a year and a half, he got himself into college, and he has done an outstandingly fine job there. He already has a stellar job lined up for after he graduates. I'm so proud of the guy I could bust (and I know many of you share similar feelings to those, as well).
You can do all sorts of things for your kids, but you can't motivate them. That, he did for himself, and he should be proud, too.
And may I just say, the smaller schools in the University of Wisconsin system are wonderful—not only UW Oshkosh, where Xander went, but other campuses like UW La Crosse, UW Eau Claire, UW Stout, and UW Stevens Point. They're mainly "right-sized" with excellent facilities, they're full of decent, friendly Wisconsin kids, and they're great bargains, at least if you're in-State. I've become a fan.
And as far as a workshop is concerned, maybe next year. (I've been saying that since 1986.)
Have a great weekend! See you on Monday.
