Wow what a great weekend! It was a successful weekend with a few nice events in San Antonio and the Hill Country. I had a chance to recharge my batteries and spend some quality time with my family. I am a blessed man. My wife and kids are awesome.
The Waring General Store had many visitors to the zip line and our Climbing tower. We also had a few kayak trips that went well. We just need rain!
I would like to thank all the Military personnel and their families for all the sacrifices they make so that we are free to have fun filled weekends with our families. A few months ago I had the privilege to escort 220 WWII veterans to their Memorial in Washington D.C. It was a day that I will never forget. Their stories of bravery, honor and country are just amazing. Most told me they did their jobs and just wanted to get back to normal lives. All our soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq are doing a great job defending our freedom. I spent many evenings over the last few weeks watching war documentaries on the Military Channel that chronicle stories of bravery, valor and love of country. We all know they are HEROS and we need to remember and thank them.
One of my passions outside of work is writing songs. A few years ago I wrote a song “Coming Home” that honors our soldiers and their families. You can listen to it at the following link: www.myspace.com/brianstrangemusic
We look forward to a great week. Hope to see you soon.
