Tomorrow, i will start off at 7 a.m. at the annual Marine Corps Birthday breakfast at the American Legion in Fox Lake. Plenty of that great SOS and scrambled eggs to eat.
Then, I will go the the Fox Lake/Grant Township Historical Association where the talk will be on the history of the Volo Bog.
Then, I drive to DeKalb, Illinois, where there will be a joint meeting of the Camp Douglas and Rock island Prison Camps of the Sons of Confederate Veterans and we will hear a talk on the Rise of the Confederate Movement in Illinois. Hey, our soldiers are also American veterans.
Then, I drive back to Fox Lake for the Fox Lake Fire Department's annual steak fry and then the Lakes Area Swing Band will play at the American Legion. This is an 18-piece Big Band which will be playing a lot of the songs of World War II.
A Real Busy Day. --RoadDog
