I am covered from head to toe in poison ivy. I am so freakin' itchy that I want to claw my skin off. The man that originally owned this house filled the backyard with poison ivy Intentionally(!) to keep kids from cutting throught the backyard. Intentionally! And ever since then, it's been impossible to get rid of. The back of our house is covered in Boston ivy that needs to be trimmed down before it reaches the roof. The poison ivy blends in with the Boston ivy, and whammo - Mama's one big welt. (FYI - Ben Gay works FANTASTICALLY on poison ivy).
Honor Flight to the WWII Veterans Memorial. I am so happy about this! For those of you that are unfamiliar with Honor Flight, it's primary mission is to send WWII veterans free of charge to Washington, DC to see the Memorial before they are unable to go. Tours, busses, food, etc, is all provided free of charge. Last year, my grandfather was inducted into the Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame for his work in the USO during the war and his work as a high school band leader, community musician, and conductor after the war. This feels like the next wonderful thing to do to honor him.
Honor Flight is always in need of donations. If you have the money to donate, you can go here to support the cause.
My grandpa's flight is June 12th. Hopefully my dad will take lots of photos that I can share with you when they come back. In the meantime, please pray for the men and women who have served our country in all conflicts and who are currently serving and keep the good people of honor flight in your thoughts. This is a beautiful thing that they are doing.
