Either way, the boy done good. Doesn't sound like he'd be very easily messed with either.

You know - I do sometimes think this generation coming up now is pretty awesome. They get a lot of stick for the selfie and social media youth culture - but there's a lot about their culture and outlook that is way more impressive than our generation's youth culture (to my recollection anyway) - a work ethic and focused sense of possibility seem to be key characteristics. Probably largely because of parents like you.
