Tender roast beef in Panama, Philly cheese steak sandwiches in Logan, magnificent tacos in Westside, stuffed baked potato in Charter Oak and the best Apple Crisp I’ve ever had in my life in Moorhead are just a sampling of why my pants didn’t fit so good Monday morning. Graduations are a great rite of passage for seniors and their families. Graduation parties are a rite of passage for my pant size from one to the next. According to the calendar we’re kicking off the summer this weekend with colder & wetter temps. If I got to pick I’d take a nice warm/dry June & a colder & wetter July. Am I asking for too much? Have a fantastic Memorial Day weekend as we honor those who we’ve lost. The stunning Flag displays in our local cemeteries’ are always a magnificent sight to see!
