The Party Is Over But The Band Played On

Debbie and I went to a Memorial Benefit for my friend's son Russell yesterday at Post 609 American Legion.
Gave our sincere condolences to all of the family members and was seated to a nice buffet , plenty of beer and jello shots.
Hey at 10 bucks ahead I'm in plus it was going to a good cause.
We've seen people that we haven't seen in a few years.
They had raffles and 50/50's with a lot of good stuff to take home.
Well Johnny G. got shit faced and headed to the kara-chokey machine and was stopped by Debbie, she told me to sit down , these poor people went through enough with out you tormenting them with song.
We were having fun until you remembered what you were there for, The Final Goodbye A Salute and a Prayer.
The Party Is Over But The Band Played On!

And as always, thanks for listening!

I am glad you went to pay tribute to your friends son. Glad Debbie stopped you from singing, mmm Jello shots have not had those in years.

Glad you and Debbie got to go but maybe its better that you didn't sing. Debbie kinda keeps you in line doesn't she?
