My dad’s a grad


Mia, Dad, and me post graduation!

My dad (the original R.W. Ridley) retired from his ophthalmology practice at the age of 81.  At the age of 83, he got his BA in accounting.  Yep, my dad is a college grad… again.  We, my sisters, wife, and I, went down to Florida this past weekend and watched him walk through the line.  The only one missing was Mom, but she was there in spirit. In an odd twist of fate, the one year anniversary of her passing was also this weekend.  So, we all got to be together to raise a glass in her honor.

The car Mia and I got him as a graduation present. It's a 1981 Chevy Citation.
