3. Way to go, BB!
I listen to his music just about every day. I wonder what he's thinking, that big smile on his face. :)

4. Saw BB King in concert a month ago.
He's still fun to see, but the poor old guy is falling apart. The timing of his medal is very good.

5. That poor confused look in his eye.
Why do they make photo ops out of his weak fine motor skills?

6. DimWit seems to resent having to play valet to these people.
He probably needs help getting dressed "hisself".
