It was wonderful seeing my nephew Sam graduate from Newton South High School last week. It was even better to see the pride in his parents' eyes.
Sam will attend Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Ore., in the fall.
Afterwards, we want to the Island Creek Oyster Bar in Boston for dinner. The oyster aficionados ordered three different types of oysters and were in seventh heaven. I slurped one down and decided to leave my share to the people who really like them, but there were other things to eat.
David's brother and sister and their spouses and children were there. It was a great celebration.
