Happy Veterans Day to all the Veterans out there!
Bastrop had their big celebration over Friday, Saturday and Sunday. They has the Art Walk, Old Car Parade, Antique cars on exhibit, shows, live music, breakfasts, and much more. We went to the First Friday Art Walk in the 65 Thunderbird. It was not cooperating in running well. The T-Bird died as we parked. Gene wasn't sure if it would get going again so we just went to eat and then came back with no more problems.
Gene marched with the vets to the ceremony.
During the ceremony the songs from the different branches of the service were played and they asked the veterans from each branch to stand. Gene stood with the Air Force. I was surprised there were no Marines seated with the older vets but they definitely got a big round of applause. Maybe the Marines were just not in my view. Our son, David, is a former Marine (not an ex-Marine). He served 12 years.
Saturday night we left Bastrop and went to Lagrange to the Bugle Boy. Oh, my. The Chubby Knuckle Choir http://www.reverbnation.com/thechubbyknucklechoir had the old place rockin'. They play a strange but wonderful sound as they have four song writers and they play it all. Besides their own music they play any other kind that strikes their fancy. If you get a chance to see them, go for it. They are pure entertainment!
I hope you had a great Veterans Day and thanked them for their service! 5 days of celebration for us, love it!
