I Could Have Danced All Night

We have survived the Military Ball once again. It turned out to be a lovely evening. We had MG John Borling as our keynote speaker, and while I have a personal case of ass against him, he was very good.

I have to tell this briefly, a few years ago, he was running for office here in Illinois and was pressing the flesh at a VFW function in Springfield. He was speaking to a small group of us, mainly Old Sarge, about a subject that I was much more familiar with than OS or anyone else, and when I gave a response to the General, he kept talking to the men like I wasn’t even there. Those that know me well know that this is not a good thing to do. The man is extremely sexist, and that’s all there is to it.

But, he spoke well and gave the POW/MIA toast. He was a guest of the North Vietnamese for 6 ½ years, and nearly had us all in tears giving the toast.

Old Sarge and I sometimes clean up well.

As did the Eldest Son and his girlfriend.

Who can sing!

Eldest Son was voted Best Male Vocalist for Sweet Home Chicago. I think I will be getting him a black hat and sunglasses for his next performances.

I didn't know it was legal to do "Sweet Home Chicago" WITHOUT black hat & sunglasses :-)
