It's funny how we often experience things we might never have planned or expected, and how those moments can enrich our lives beyond belief. TFCB had one of those moments on our recent trip through Florida. While in a department store in St Augustine, FL to pick up some supplies, we noticed several disabled veterans and their care givers eating lunch in one of the kiosks. All of us should feel that it is our duty as citizens to take a moment to thank our veterans whenever we have the opportunity, so we decided to go in and say hello. After a bit of conversation, we found out that they were on a day trip from the Clyde Lassen Veterans State Nursing Home outside St Augustine, and after hearing some of their stories, we felt we needed to do more to thank them than just shake hands. We exchanged information, and later that day Gil made a phone call to the director of the VA home to see if they would allow us to come play for the residents. She thought it was a great idea, so we set up a time to play there the next day. What a great day it turned out to be! Now please understand that we are not trying to blow our own horns here, we're just throwing out the idea that each of us can do more to thank our veterans and make them feel appreciated. Just a handshake and a thank you can brighten up a veterans whole day, and what does it cost? Anyway, doing the show was a huge honor for us, and sharing that short time together brightened up that cold, rainy afternoon for these brave men and women. I know it surely brightened up ours! Thanks to all our veterans out there!
