On Saturday 11 December 2010, Doris Jones and I attended the Christmas party at the Gulfport Ward of The Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-day Saints in Gulfport, Mississippi.
Doris Jones is a retired United States Army nurse, and she and I both reside in the Armed Forces Retirement Home in Gulfport, Mississippi.
The buffet food was delicious.
I had ham and corn on the cob, with some highly decorative chocolate cake for dessert.
I also ate some stuff that was really HOT, but I don't know what it was, although it was good.
All the cute wee ones REALLY had a time of it, joyously scampering all about and gleefully chirping, squeaking, and squealing.
In the video, did you notice how the baby girl wasn't impressed with Santa, but reached out towards her mommy to be held?
After the Christmas party, Doris Jones invited me to accompany her to the Hard Rock Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi to watch Brandon Bennett performing his impersonation of Elvis Presley.
At times, the show was amusing, as adoring female fans donated money to charity in exchange for a chance to kiss "Elvis" on the cheek, or receive a sweat stained scarf.
At one point, Brandon Bennett introduced his costumed five year old son, who stole the show, driving the audience hilariously berserk as he attempted to imitate his father's movements on stage.
Unfortunately, due to all the overwhelming din of noise, I couldn't understand any of the lyrics the performer was singing, but I did recognize a couple of the songs as ones that I sometimes sing.
Be sure to watch the video and slide shows in "FULL SCREEN" mode!
