Kyle’s march to high school graduation continued unabated last night with the Senior’s Ring Mass.

The mass was held at a local Catholic church, since the high school’s auditorium is not nearly large enough to handle the students and their families. Kyle’s ring is pretty kickass, with a blue stone, and his sport – lacrosse – etched onto the left side. (Click the pic to embiggen.) Kyle, being Kyle, said he would probably wear the ring during the Ring Mass, then stick it in a drawer and never wear it again.

And before you ask for more details, I cannot provide them, since I was working last night. Between the two college visits and our lack of manpower, I couldn’t take another night off. Instead, I spent a fantastic, entertaining evening surrounded by two shootings – including a six-year old who shot herself in the foot with irresponsible daddy’s gun – two robberies, a stabbing, and various aggravated assaults.

So if you missed seeing my smiling face, I wasn’t blowing it off; I was knee-deep in criminals and blood.

  1. Nice ring. These kids are growing up way to fast. When I started reading your blog…….Julia might have been a twinkle in your eye.


  2. I also have watched your kids grow up here. Thank you for sharing their adventures along with yours. Sorry you have to deal with the idiots of society. I know it is a thankless job at times, so… thank you Wyatt, and pass the thanks to the good guys you know.


  3. Ronni – When I first started blogging in 2005, Kyle was four and Erik was a year old. I think you were here before Julia, as she and Kevin came in 2008. They’re all getting older, as am I.

    TXNick – Certainly will. We actually had three shootings last night. Another one came in after I finished writing this post.


  4. Nice ring for a nice kid. Reminds me a lot of mine except it was a square stone in the same color. And I wasn’t such a nice kid…………..


  5. Tam – It’s really light compared to my high school ring. I’d compare it to my college ring, but I couldn’t afford one. Not that I wear rings anyway.
