Another WKS event I can't attend . . . this is making me crazy! The boy scout troop that I want my son to join is having their open house that afternoon from 2-6 pm, so I don't think there's any way I can make it. Dang!

Awesome. I bet it was a great time and deserved to all out heroes.

To all of our veterans out there I give you great thanks. You're our family, friends, neighbors who have given of yourselves to protect our freedoms. I am eternally grateful.

To my brother especially, Marine Lt. Colonel Scott (first name). You have served with great honor for 28 years and have finally put in your papers for a long deserved retirement. Thank you. We can never repay you.

Great looking WKC mini-fest. Wish I could have made it up there on Saturday, but the timing just wouldn't work out. We had thunder & rain down here, so I did not get out at all yesterday, and today was yard work day . . . .

And also - a BIG thank you to all the veterans out there.
