Busy Busy Busy "LOVE IT"!


Well Veterans Day went off well, The weather cooperated, it was cool but nothing long johns and heavy coat wouldnt fix, We Marched *(Sort of) .. Marines one way, Army another way and the Navy walked!!to the Monument with a Police Escort and our fantastic- Sharp Color guard leading the way, I opened the ceremony at 10;50, at 11.11 at 11AM we did the prayer, I even managed to keep peace and Harmony between the American Legion and VFW; speeches went well and readers did their parts and we went back to our respective Posts for lunch!!

Wednesday was a meeting at 4PM at Church, ran from there back to home, made it to the covered dish Birthday Party here, then shot out of here to be at Church at 6PM for Alpha Group and practice my 3 songs.

Thursday and Friday we got the items togeather we needed for this Saturdays Holiday Parade and our Pancake and Sausage Breakfast at church, Pancakes, Sausage, Scrambled Eggs, Real Home Fries, Juice and Coffee and FREE coffee all morning for the public, Parade is at 11 AM, it can not be called the "Christmas Parade", must be politically correct and its the "Holiday Parade" with fire trucks, police cars, legion, VfW, scouts, bands, Chamber of Commerce, local Business's and "SANTA and MRS CLAUSE and elves"!!!

We will be at church at 6AM to start cooking so we can start serving at 8AM and we also have a "BAZAAR" set us with crafts, Christmas Items, and hand made baby clothes, blankets,mittens, touques, a TV to Raffle off and some really nice items.

Sunday Night we will be playing at the ChatterBox Diner at 6PM for a night of song, praise and prayer. Last week their were 61 who showed up and packed the place to the rafters.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!

Great entry Woody, but quit with the food descriptions and the pictures already.
I love the tributes to the Vets, they can never get enough. I was reviewig some battles and statistics, horrible. Our Men went in knowing many would not return, but they followed orders.
Bless you Woody, you spread the word. Thanks. Jack

You're playing in more places tha I do. I haven't played in about a month and it's time to take the show on the road for a few days. My guitar strings are so rusty I fear I might need a tetanus shot.
