WWII no show
One evening in Sedona we ate at a local café that was offering entertainment by a trio of nice aging artists. The lead singer has been a backup singer for Tony Bennett and others decades ago, and she was sweet. She planned an evening of music from the 40s to honor the greatest generation and she had invited WWII agers from a local care home who were going to come on a van...and they were a no show. Which reminds me that almost all that generation is late 80s and early 90s and before long just a few will be left.
I have been blessed to have quite a number of WWII vets I have known in my time in Sun Lakes, and that decade before and during the war had great music.
