Ball has come and gone. And it was fun. It was a lot of fun.
I've been to many balls in my life: fraternity formals, ROTC balls, Warrant Officer ball, Aviation Balls. All were ok. A few were fun.
This one was the best.
And the Cav guys behaved. Mostly.
The Hillclimber grog. In a bubble window, no less.
The head of the Hillclimber Veterans' Association flew in for the ball.
One of the reasons it was such a good time was because of good friends.
One of the biggest reasons that ball was so successful was because of this guy. And as a thank you, he got to re-rearrange the "fruit salad" on his coat. Guess he shouldn't have taken it off in the first place.
Ok, maybe the Cav guys didn't behave...
Of course, when the troop commander misbehaves, it's 'monkey see, monkey do'.
The shirt says "Party Shirt. My HOT date". Heh.
And it just went downhill from there.
I have no decent shots from Nashville's primarily because I was unable to figure out how to operate the camera by that point in the evening. Thank goodness for my designated driver or else I'd still be down there. Heh.
And formal portraits are pending...because we forgot to pick them up at the end of the evening. Whoops.
