They Say It's Your Birthday!

Happy 23rd Birthday to The Drug Dealer!
Me and The Drug Dealer circa 1990

How she went from this sweet little girl to Drug Dealer I'll never know?  But somehow she overcame the emotional scarring of those enormous hair bows from her childhood to excel in all she did. 
The Drug Dealer and The Fisherman circa 1992

She graduated from the University of Tennessee Knoxville last May with honors in a major called BCMB (aka Biochemical, Cellular, and Molecular Biology)!  She is now in her first year of pharmacy school at the University of Tennessee Memphis, which is consistently in the top 20 pharmacy schools in the nation.

She managed to do all of this while holding down a part-time job all four years and working at different pharmacies each summer.  She also wasn't just buried in books and work.  She was an active member of a sorority and had an active social life.  And she is also my original Bonna-pal:)  We attended our first Bonnaroo together several years ago.

tournament with the University of Tennessee Chattanooga Fishing Team

She is a good egg!  I think we'll keep her!
