There’s an AGGIE in my house!

For those of you who don't know what an Aggie is, that is the term used for students from Texas A&M University. My son Aaron, whom you probably know by now (DartThis74), just received notice that he has been accepted to A&M and will enter their mechanical engineering and technology degree program this fall in College Station, Texas. We took him down to Bryan/College Station this weekend to spend the next four weeks at Blinn College taking a couple of classes in the final summer session, before entering A&M in August.

It's going to get extremely quiet around the house very soon. Aaron is our last child to leave home, and his mother and I can already feel the "empty nest" syndrome creeping in. Aaron and I have been working very closely on his Dart Sport and Duster for the past four years. The plan is for the Duster to go with him to college, and the Dart will stay home with me for safe keeping.

With him gone, I'm going to have LOTS of free time on my hands. I guess it's about time to start my own project now - a 1948 Ford F1 chopped rat rod pickup. Of course, with the cost of college nowadays, I might not be able to afford to work on it.

Any other Aggies out there?
