Working a midnight to 8 am shift I almost missed it. My nephew was graduating from Gloucester High School and I had strict orders from my wife not to forget the camera! Boy was I lucky, sound asleep I was woke up by my neighbor as he power washed his deck. The noise of the two stroke engine became an unintended alarm clock and I had thirty minutes to dress then drive to the high school and find a parking space. I arrived as the grads were making their way to their seats.
Here comes the grads!
My nephew Andrew Gossom receives his diploma.
Caps go flying!
Classmates ...Jonathan Laurie and Andrew.

It's not "soda" and not "pop" or even "soda pop" it's "tonic"!

It's not "Break Time or Coffee Break" it's "Mug-up"!
It's not a "water fountain" it's a "Bubbla"!
