Oh that was, yeah, that was educational for me, too when he decided that he wanted to go back to school, which I thought was a great idea.  And, we had a van then that he couldn’t drive, but I drove it.  So, he signed up for classes, well then what I would do was talk to the professor, “Was it okay if I took the class too?” –I didn’t take the tests or any of that stuff—“Yeah, you’re sitting here anyway, go ahead.”  So, I got an education, too.  And, we went through it; we had to go to two or three different schools, because we picked up a class here and a class there.  But that was great for him because, again, it gave him something to do; this was prior to getting his job, you know.  So, that was good, and he was the first one to graduate from Louis University in a wheelchair.  And, it was good for me too!
