Has everyone heard of the "Angel Network" that Oprah Winfrey developed several years ago? Well there is currently a home being built in Seattle for a family that both my Father and Brother have had an opportunity to be working on (both plumbers for a company based in Woodinville named Bates Plumbing). So about a week ago Oprah sent a rep out to choose 5 plumbers, 5 electricians and 5 carpenters to join her on stage and thank them for their efforts towards her house. My Father, Merlyn Blue Jr and my brother, Andrew Blue were selected to be flown to New York to be on her show. It is going to air Feb. 11th and I am inviting everyone to watch and see some wonderful hometown heroes that I can proudly call...MY FAMILY.
My Father has been a plumber for Bates for over 30 years so I think that it is time for him to get some good old recognition anyways. Go Dad!!! Go Andrew!!! Make us proud!
