Let me start out by apologizing for the length of this one.

Yesterday found me in the city (Chicago) and I would normally take a beating rather than going down there.  Seems that my and a few other's presence was requested at Rockefeller Chapel University of Chicago.  It's one of those real big buildings with stained glass and ceilings that are so high you really almost can't see what's up there.  Anyway, a little over a hundred and fifty youngsters from around the world were awarded a Doctorate of Optometry.  Somehow the Sicilian Kid managed to be in that group.

So now we have a "doctor in the house" which when you consider that only two of his grand parents even made it to grade school and only one of the four made it to the lofty environment of high school it might be considered some sort of achievement.  I'm usually not at a loss for words, but really don't know how to properly approach speaking with pride about this one.

Thanks to all of you who have helped shape my two since they started cowboy shooting.  Got two in the medical profession now and thinking they'll both do well in the future.

Congratulations, Dad!!

You and (the one who must be obeyed) have truly done a magnificent job with the raising of two great kids!

We have watched them mature into the great young adults that would make any parent proud, and if you think being associated with a bunch of smelly, old Cowboys had anything to do with it...........thank you!

They make us all proud to know them!

Thanks for the kind words.  

Was putting together a brief announcement for the local paper and it occurred to me that the only press I got when I was in college was in the St. Louis Globe Democrat for an arrest in Carbondale (very slow news day).

So, "Changing his alias"... is he going to become Doc Sicilian now, or The 20/20 Kid?

One slight disappointment for us all is that neither LF or SK specialized in psychiatry - something that might have benefited you directly. :wink:

Congratulations all around! Not only to the Kid but to you and the rest of your family! It's a lot of work and a lot of expense, but it is worth it. :yahoo: :yahoo:

In the upcoming Cowboy Chronicle (June Issue) under the title "Thanks Again" there will be an article noting what the twins have achieved and the contribution that SASS has given to some of our young shooters.  

Look for it!
