We enjoy attending the presidential inauguration ceremonies, but we have come to expect better accommodations than what you see here. This will be the last time we ask the Democratic National Committee to make our reservations! LOL
Personal Note: I marched in the 1969 presidential inauguration (Nixon) as a member of the VMI Corps of Cadets. I also attended the 1965 (Johnson), 1989 (Bush 41), and 2001 (Bush 43) presidential inaugurations. Why is it always bitterly cold on Inauguration Day?
Perhaps it was because I was an impressionable high school kid but, looking back, I remember the 1965 inauguration parade as the best of all. The Nationâ€™s mourning over the untimely death of President Kennedy was over, and we had not yet fully committed to Viet Nam (although the 1st Marine Division waded onshore at Da Nang that same month). It was a time to celebrate.
The vast crowd that assembled at the Capitol for the 1965 Inauguration was wild with enthusiasm. So were those marching in the parade. The Native Americans looked magnificent. They were bedecked in buckskins and war bonnets, and they were justifiably proud as they rode their handsome ponies up Pennsylvania Avenue.
As always, thanks for stopping by. Happy New Year!
