Yesterday ended up being FANTASTIC. Great events (go Charlie on our March!) and even great weather. At one point I thought we were gonna get rained on, then the sun came out and stayed out. The F-15 flyover was even better than last year, and this year we had the fireboat with red, white and blue water before the cannons went off. It was amazing.
When I saw what happened in Illinois at the President's event--torrential rain with thunderstorms--I knew just how lucky we were. Thank you, Jesus!
I had two wives of Vietnam vets and one Vietnam vet come and thank me for my speech. It was a very tough crowd--very serious (although they laughed in the right places at Davy Crockett's speech). Yeah, just 36 hours ago I was writing a speech for myself *and* for Davy Crockett. Have I mentioned lately that I love my job?
Add Stosur's win in Paris, and it added up to a great Memorial Day.
What will today bring?
