I'm In the Mood

I had the privilege this past weekend to visit Clarinda, IA, for the annual Glenn Miller festival. An elderly lady asked me to take her(she was tired of bus trips) and so I had basically no expenses. The price I had to pay was to listen to the lady talk talk talk for two whole days... See, I'm still being sanctified.

I was glad to go though, because I had family reasons to go there- my grandpa(who died before I was born) was born there in 1916, and served as a "flower girl" for his Uncle's wedding at this house:

I enjoy Glenn Miller music, too. I got to go to three concerts- the Glenn Miller Orchestra, Glenn Miller "Live" from Cafe Rouge, where they reproduced a Miller TV show, and the 312 Army Reserve Band. That SPC Reynolds is the Army version of Michael Bluble- He was great!

Glenn Miller rocks, I used to have a couple albums of his. Glad you enjoyed the show, for free even!

Well, I'm glad there's another "young person" out there who likes Glenn Miller too.

Ok, well, I don't even know who Glen Miller is! I'm glad you had a good time. You can't beat free!!

Well, you'll have to see if your library has some of his music! I think you would like it. It's music you can dance to.
