Sparky checks off bucket list item #6: Visit the Alamo


By Audrey Cooney

Sparky got to visit the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas. Built in 1744 by Spanish missionaries, the Alamo was converted to a military fortification in the late 1800s. In 1836, it was the site of the famous Battle of the Alamo, which has since been immortalized in movies and books.

Sparky turned 65 on March 18, 2016, and we have been pulling out all the stops to help him celebrate! He’s created a bucket list of 65 activities and events he’d like to accomplish from now through October. As he checks them off his list, we’ll make sure to share them with you. Some of Sparky’s wishes are pretty lofty, while others are just fun or a bit silly. Check in weekly to see where he goes and what he’s up to!
