What's A Stimulus Bawl?
Six weeks ago some folks at church threw a Stimulus Bawl that [literally] knocked my socks off [all the guests were asked to bring six packs of socks to benefit Hannah's Socks—a local non-profit we partner with that provides socks to the less fortunate]. Following supper, the entertainment was entitled "Dreams of America – A time to Remember, Reflect and Rejoice!" and included guests dressed up as Abraham Lincoln, Florence Nightingale, Mark Twain, Bill Clinton, Sarah Palin, Princess Diana, and Chief Sitting Bull among many others. During the entertainment portion of the program, Jackie and I donned our Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama masks and performed what I'm told was a "stirring" rendition of the Jefferson's theme song "Movin' On Up." A good time was had by all. Rumor has it a prom or ball or some other kind of party is planned for fall. Maybe it will be in honor of Obama's Middle East peace plan or latest corporate bailout. Jackie already accepted my invitation. Will you?!! Click any pic for a link to see even more pics from the Stimulus Bawl.
