THREE EMPTY BEDROOMS NOW


This summer has been, to say the least, a very hectic and exciting time in the Jones manse. My crew and I have definitely had some significant developments taking place. A brief recounting of the major events of this summer may help to illustrate why I haven't had a whole lot of time for blogging of late:

On May 5th, Tristan received her B.A. degree from the University of Indianapolis. She was honored as a Magna Cum Laude graduate. I am so proud!

On May 10th, I had my annual Belated Opening Day outing at the Cincinnati Reds with my old-time buds. Those celebrants with me this year were Larry Ragland, Jeff Grube, Jeff Schlageter and Bret Smith. I'll try to post some photos soon.

On May 25th, Brendan graduated from Providence High School. On Senior Awards Day that week, he was presented his commission to attend the United States Naval Academy by my friend and colleague, Captain Tim Naville.

On May 27th, we had a big shindig to honor both Tristan and Brendan. It was a true stone-gas!

On June 14th, Brendan, Collin and I had an outing to watch the Reds play the Angels at Great American Ball Park. This was, without question, one of the most special days of my life. I had a great day with my two sons.

On June 16th, Caitlin was wed to Rocky Donald Byerley. They were married at Silver Street United Methodist Church, with our old friend the Reverend Jerry Rairdon presiding. I can't begin to describe for you the emotions that I experienced on this day. To walk my sweet daughter down the aisle--Unbelievable!

On June 23rd, I went to the open auditions for the Theatre Alliance of Louisville. As a result, I was offered several roles in upcoming local plays, and ultimately accepted one. More info on that later.

On June 27th, Brendan had to report to the Naval Academy in Annapolis to begin the rigors of Plebe Summer. He will not be allowed to return home until Thanksgiving, at the earliest. One week from now, we will be able to go to Annapolis to visit him for Parents' Weekend. I have written to Brendan approximately three times per week since he left--leaving little time for blogging. I'm sure that you'll understand.

On July 19-22, Collin performed in the Providence Players' summer production of Noises Off. He spent much of the summer preparing for this fabulous production.

As mentioned previously, I have accepted a role in an upcoming theater production. I will be in The C.D.I. and Other Plays, to be performed in the MEX Theater at the Kentucky Center for the Arts on August 23, 24 & 25, 2007. I will, I promise, have more info about this upcoming production in the coming days.

So, that's pretty much what's been going on in the personal life of Old Jones these days--in case you were interested. I'll keep you posted.

And so, for now, I leave you with this sage advice: Be excellent to each other....and party on, dudes!
