MAY IS THE BEST MONTH
May is my favorite month. It’s the middle of spring, and there are so many great things going on. You have Mother’s Day, the Indianapolis 500, my birthday, and Memorial Day. For me, though, it’s the time with family on Mother’s Day and my birthday that really makes the month for me. Speaking of Mother’s Day, I want to take a moment to wish all the mothers out there a happy Mother’s Day. I hope it’s a great day for you and your family. It’s a chance for the rest of us to spend some time with the special ladies in our lives who have made it all possible — our grandmothers, mothers, aunts, sisters, daughters, and so on. Mother’s Day is also a day to remember those who are no longer with us. We have some friends who take part of the day to go out and put flowers on the gravesite of mothers and grandmothers who have passed on. It’s a touching tribute. May is also my birth month. While I bring it up, I try not to make a big deal of it. I find as I get older, I try to celebrate it a little less and look at it as just another day. Of course, I do enjoy getting time to spend with my family and celebrate my mom putting up with me all these years. Of course, my favorite month wraps up with Memorial Day weekend and the Indianapolis 500. Our family is really looking forward to the race. IndyCar took a bit of a hit a few years ago when it split into two leagues, but I’ve noticed it’s really picked back up again.
That said, it’s nothing short of remarkable that they pack 250,000 people into a single sporting event. It’s mind-boggling to be there and see so many fans in one place. That’s one of the things I really love about it — there’s just so much energy in the crowds and on the track. Going into June, one of the big days is Father’s Day. It’s another chance to celebrate and spend time with family (and again, a shoutout to all the fathers out there!). For our family, and for some of you reading this, Father’s Day revolves around the golf course. My dad has the annual golf trip he’s been going on for 25 years now. I’ve gone on this trip with him 14 times. This year, things are a little different: My brother will be going with us this time, and it marks his first time tagging along.
will be loaded up in the truck, and we won’t say a thing until Dad gets in. I have no doubt our dad is going to be very surprised. It should be a fun trip. My own boys, Conner and Spencer, are wrapping up the school year. At the same time, baseball is in full swing — pun intended. But before we all know it, it’s going to be right back to football season. These two have a busy summer in front of them. -Todd Thurston Sales Manager And I’m excited to get the summer started. With the wet, cold spring behind us, I’m really looking forward to sunshine and warm weather, as I know a lot of people are. And with that, I hope you’re have a great spring, and we’ll see you at the Truck Center.
We have it all planned out. We’re going to surprise Dad when we pick him up. My brother
