Today I climb for my mom’s family, the MacCoys. June 6, 2012 would have been my grandfather’s (we lovingly called him “Pop Pop”) 100th birthday, and while I didn’t have too long to meet him (he passed away when I was a toddler), I’m thinking of him and his amazing sense of humor today. And according to my Aunt Jean, he really loved watching All in the Family—who can’t laugh at least a little bit watching that clip? And my Uncle Steve says this CCR song was one of his favorites, too.
So from my mom, to my late Uncle Tom, to all those crazy partiers over at Reed’s Beach who have kindly donated to my cause, today I climb for you. I’ll be heading to Kilimanjaro in a few weeks, but I hope to see you guys again soon. Love and miss you all!
