Well, I'm sure he doesn't want to be a bum, so he chews gum.

On the other hand, the pump don't work cause the vandals stole the handle.

I wonder how he's doing with the quitting smoking thing? After I quit, I chewed a lot of gum.

How neat! So was he on the street during the parade or in that viewing room?

Did he see the inauguration? Where did he view it from on the mall?

Did you go with him or other family?

I think that is so exciting.

I had several tearful bouts. One with the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir. I have three of their CDs and love them. The director is outstanding:

Carol Cymbala began the choir with a group of 9 people in the early 1980ís. Since then, the choir has grown to 250 voices. When she had trouble finding enough appropriate songs, she began writing them. Although she cannot read or write music, the Lord has given her a special gift that helps her to play from her heart through the power of the Holy Spirit. Twenty years and many albums later, recordings and live performances continue to carry the choirís sound and the Gospelís message to people all over the world.

He watched it on a big screen inside the viewing room on Pa Ave. The one in front of the white house.

Just my mother & father went. The invitation was for my father & guest.

My mother watched it from her niece's (my cousin) condo balcony. Her condo is right on Penna Ave. My father stayed inside the viewing room. Gout was acting up. My father is 93. Mom is a young 84. My niece escorted my mother to the inaugural party.



I only watched about an hour of the parade. Al Roker was a hot mess!!!!!! I didn't watch any of the inaugural going ons. Didn't turn the tv on till about 4:00 pm.

My mother did send me this from her cell phone.



She meant to send it to my brother but hit my # instead.

I watched Al yelling at both the Prez and Veep. Funny! But they both responded to him. I watched from 7 a.m.til 3 p.m. PST.

Thanks for responding.
