I apologize for my tardy posting of this magnificent event. Cupcake and I had to rush home and prepare for the Hugfest 2015 event which we’d scheduled way back in June-long before Bruce invited me to speak in San Diego. Hence, we were hard-pressed to get home and clean up the hacienda for the deluge of HCVeterans that happened two days later.
Attached here are a few of the memorable events we attended but by no means all of them. I’m hoping others in the VDA can send me some of their pictures to include in a future post. I don’t do selfies or Veterans parades so you usually do not find pictures of me here on the blog.
Deb and I did the USS Midway, anchored several blocks from the hotel. The 0-1, Huey and Spad (A-1 D) brought back old memories. Many are the years I have tried to explain what a MK 82 was to Cupcake and some of the possible versions of it. Here, it was all in glorious color and a veritable show and tell.
And last but not least, the Great Big Dinner with the Winners.
I’d like to thank Mike, Steve and Richard for making our welcome a warm one. If they do it in Florida next year, we’ll be there.
