The Week that Was

A word from Curt

Review

It’s a good word.

It’s means looking back with a purpose.

Not living in the past

but learning from it.

Friday and Saturday are the days I look back over the past week and plan for the coming week.

Here are photos and images from the week that was.

Saw Charlie Daniels at Ft Polk’s Freedom Fest last Saturday.

My first Charlie Daniels concert was in 1976.

Charlie was 40 and I was 20.  He turns 80 this fall.

That’s your truly leaning on the rail. I had the best seat in the house.
