The True American Idols

Memorial Day Is For Remembering. Do You?
Memorial Day Is For Remembering. Do You?

To those that paid the ultimate price and to those that were willing, but didn’t have to, we honor you today.

And if we really want to be a good and decent person, we will make everyday Memorial Day. The wolf is always near the door. Freedom is never free.

Growing Up Small Town stuff

Spring Grove, Pennsylvania

Who Remembers This? No One Probably
Who Remembers This? No One Probably

Small towns.  I grew up just outside of one.

And today’s post borders on “who gives a crap” and “yeah, I know what you mean”.

My Dad’s Family grew up in town, first as kids on Water Street, and then as adults on Main Street, across from the Catholic Church and Ford Dealership, with the Spring Grove Elementary and also the Junior High School across the alley in the back of their row home.

Having a basic understanding of your birth place can provide more benefits than if you don’t understand. For in the understanding, we begin to see our commonalities.

Spring Grove, Pennsylvania.  A small town. My town.

Self-Indulgent Drive Home?

 

 

Saturday my son and I ran errands and spent the day doing stuff.  I constantly remind him that were we live is a special place.  Some people only get to visit once or twice in a lifetime. We drove through it on our way home.

Dumb Little Man & Walt Disney

Not So Dumb After All
Not So Dumb After All

Saw a Tony Robbins tweet the other day about “Seven Life-Changing Lessons Learned From Walt Disney”.

Had to read it, since I’m kinda familiar with the whole concept.

Make your day GREAT!  It’s up to you.  Let your light shine.
