The holiday season is upon us. Some like the season and others do not. Whatever your preference we can all agree that we like the Musselman. It's in July when it's warm and hot. Sometimes it's MusselHot and MusselHumid. It would be a race if it didn't include all of those things, except for the fact that everyone might PR at the distance if the weather could just play nice for once in July. Maybe the 16th version this July with be the one where are holiday season wishes come true. Sweet 16 how we relish you and maybe a hotdog or two.
