Worthington BLOG: Memorial Day Weekend 2018

 

Memorial Day Weekend 2018

First thing, I will take time on Monday to honor those who fought and died for our country. I hope you do too.

My grandfathers both fought in World War II. My uncle Fought in Vietnam. My brother survived 2 tours in the Middle East. I am happy to say, they all survived those wars. Others were not as lucky. Take a moment to consider that, and remember them on Monday.

Saturday and Sunday, I intend to do something a little less somber. My BBQ will be smokin’ and the NBA Playoffs will help keep me company. I may even mix in an adult beverage while I am at it. If I could throw all my responsibilities at home out the window, (wishful thinking) I would throw my fly fishing gear in the car and head out for a couple days. Maybe even camp a night out under the stars with my boys.

For all of you heading out this weekend; be safe, and enjoy some of our wide open spaces. It’s just one of the many reasons Idaho is such a great place to live.

Mom’s deviled eggs, and other Independence Day memories

My parents did a wonderful job of exposing me to as much art and culture as possible growing up. We didn’t picnic often, but when we did, we did it in style. Just a simple family of 3, Mom Dad and me, would go to Blossom Music Center every July 4th to see the Cleveland…
