My moment to shine. . .
Little did I know that a short trip to Spartanburg would land my name in the newspaper (the "news" section - not the police report)! Along with other thinking Americans, we attended an event sponsored by Americans for Prosperity which seeks to inform people of the truth concerning global warming and other environmental agendas. We were given T-shirts and supper (A tasty one - I might add!), listened to an informative speech but due to wind conditions, we missed out on the hot air balloon rides. Actually, we is rather liberal! I would not have even touched the balloon. Adventure seeking/fearless Ethan was longing for that opportunity! Instead, he had to settle for dipping his toes and fingers in a fountain.

Below you can find the few lines regarding the Castle clan. . .
Troy and Martha Castle of Greer attended the AFP event with their three children, hoping for a balloon ride, but mostly absorbing the message. The Castles described themselves as conservative in their political beliefs. They're for less government control and less government spending.
"An organization like this gives this side of the issue a voice in Washington," Troy Castle said.
I was rather disappointed that my, "If Al Gore is for it, I am against it" quote did not make it in Spartanburg ink! Oh, well. . . I guess I should be happy that Troy's good quote made newspaper history.
For all the Cincinnatians that read my blog, the tour is headed to Eden Park this weekend. It is a great event to attend, and you can discover more info and register at this site.

Wow, congratulations on getting in the "News."
Sorry about the delay when you called today. Preston couldn't find his handkerchief and it was in his pocket the whole time, LOL.
Anyhow, I felt bad I had to tell you just a minute when you had just called. But I guess you really wanted Missie anyhow, so it worked out.
