Sick as a dog and photos!

So, I spent Sunday and Monday sick. Like nausea, congestion, headache, sore throat sick. And then I came into work today. Not a good idea. I'm on antibiotics, but I'm not feeling the greatest. But rather than continuing to bitch about it, I'm going to post photos from a wonderful event that I was able to attend last Thursday through the Executive Leadership Foundation. Actually, my friend Joel (who you may remember from the event in February) asked me to be his 'date' for the event.

The dinner honored World War II veterans. Coach Bill Curry was the keynote speaker while Joel was the emcee. I can't tell you how moved I was by the video that they showed honoring the WWII veterans. In addition to being thankful for their service, I thought of my dad and how proud I am of his military service and all the sacrifices he made for this country and for my family. (I love you, daddy!)

So, now that I'm all teary-eyed, here are some photos from the evening.

Wow my daughter is rubbing elbows with all these famous folks. Thanks for the kind words, there are so many vets who have never been thanked for their service and especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. My buddy Jeff who posted earlier was awarded the purple heart twice. Love ya a bunch
