July 4, 2012

The 4th of July, Independence Day, is my favorite holiday. I've developed my own traditions to ensure that it be the best possible day ever. This year, I watched approximately five different firework shows, attended one parade, drove through 9 different cities, and had a blast!

A few years ago I met a man on Christmas Eve at bar where we sat and drank Mountain Dew for hours. We talked a lot about art, and just life in general. He even had a few photos of some of his art work that were saved on his cell phone.
He's one of the nicest guys that I've met in a long time, and his name is Todd Spore. I've seen him off and on, and when I heard that he was painting a town mural on the side of a building I was very interested in seeing it.

Well it is finished!! Let me tell you it is amazing!

There is a lot of family history painted in this mural.  In fact the little girl in the yellow dress, she is distant relative of mine.

Here is a great video on the meaning and history of this mural.
