Family Time

Michael graduates High School today.

Father's Day Fun in Basking Ridge, NJ

Michael and I talked about what it feels like to finish High School but it has not quite sunk in yet as the Seniors at Ridge High celebrate day after day. There have been celebrations every night for the past week ... continuing on ... and highlighting Friday when Michael and 12 of his closest guy friends and their moms take a trip to Costa Rica for one week.

Everyone at the party is a basketball fan so the conversation turned to the championship game played Sunday night. Nine-year old David - in the family pic above - said it all with his Cavaliers Tee-shirt. As predicted LeBron James' Cleveland Cavaliers beat Golden State Warriors at Oracle Arena in Oakland to win NBA title ... and what a game it was. The Cleveland Cavaliers became the first team to overturn a 3-1 deficit in the best-of-seven NBA finals as they beat Golden State Warriors. James was named Most Valuable Player of the finals for the third time. Cavaliers fans took to the streets of Cleveland to celebrate the victory.

Speaking of Cleveland ... the 2016 Republican National Convention (RNC) is July 18-21. Like a championship game we wait and wonder how things will play out as almost undefeated Donald Trump will meet unexpected challenges mounting against him. Sunday we shared the fear most Americans have about him becoming president. What came to my mind about his nomination ... was it orchestrated from the beginning to get Hillary elected. There are always hidden agendas even behind those not part of the traditional establishment.
