At Last

At Joe's Ringside Bar here in Las Vegas the Rio Gallinas School held an inauguration ball. The students of the 2nd grade to 8th grade school dressed up and crowded the dance floor while footage of the actual inauguration ball in Washington DC place on the big screen.

Barak and Michelle danced to Beyonce singing the Etta James classic "At Last", which happens to be one of my favorite songs. It is longing relieved, prayers answered, romance and sweetness. It was the perfect song for a couple that seem so in love with each other and the perfect song for a nation looking for a hero. I got a little verklempt.


Give the dogs a bone till tomorrow. Tonight is all magic.
