Happy Friday, everyone! Mom and I are on our way to Nicaragua where we will have our annual volunteer vacation. We will be working with physically handicapped people and repairing their wheelchairs and walkers, painting and updating their facility, and working on their fundraiser. We always look forward to these get-aways because we meet so many interesting people and get to have new experiences. We will still be publishing the blog while we are away, so be sure to stop in.

We couldn’t go away before letting you all know that my grandfather (Mom’s father) is celebrating his 95th birthday tomorrow. Grandad is a constant in our family. He is calm, loyal, hard-working, animal-loving, consistent, and loving. He fought for our country in World War II and was shot on three different occasions. Each time he healed and then was sent back out to fight some more. He was also in the Korean War. He is very proud of his service to our country and would do it all over again. If everyone in the world was like my grandad, then we wouldn’t have any problems. Please join us in wishing Grandad a Happy Birthday!
