June is one of my favorite months of the year. The month of June was most likely named for the Roman goddess Juno, patroness of marriage and the well-being of women. … June 20th is the summer solstice, which heralds the start of summer in the Northern Hemisphere. It’s the day with the most hours of daylight. Of course, living in the Florida Panhandle means heat and humidity but I love living close to the beach.
June is Father’s Day. I love being a father, but I had a great mentor from my own father. He taught my brothers and me what it meant to have integrity and to work hard. He was a Vietnam Veteran and I give him credit for steering me into the Navy. After retiring after 22 years, I turned my rifle in for a pen.
June also marks my mother’s birthday. She celebrated her 71st birthday. Due to COVID 19 we had a small gathering to ensure she stayed safe. I don’t know what June means to you, but whatever it is I hope you enjoy.
