FRI, 15JUN18 - The Daily Poop -- First Edition

Five days and the fun begins. Music, laughter, old shipmates, new friends, Basie charts and sea stories galore. It's the 2018 reunion of the Navy Musicians Association.

 And thus begins the Daily Poop, my annual, pre-reunion pep rally of news and slander. I'll keep this up daily until the reunion starts on Wednesday the 20th (or maybe the day before) at which time Live Blog 2018 will kick in. That'll be round-the-clock coverage of the NMA action in Virginia Beach. More about this later.
I'm looking forward to this NMA reunion like never before. It's been a crappy year--cat scans, ekgs, stress tests heart blockages--I was afraid I wouldn't be able to make the trip. But a coupla weeks ago, the doc put a stent in my heart. Yesterday he gave me the okay to travel and said I could hope for improvement soon.

So my wife and I are about to hop in the car and head toward Virginia. (Actually, Jo will "hop" in. I'll "dodder with my cane.")
Usually, I spend about month before the reunion in a quivering state of high anticipation. Because of my aforementioned medical uncertainties, haven't experienced such high drama this year. Until now. I'll have to pack it all in during the next few days.
Got news? Slander? Are you coming to the reunion? Do you have to stay home for your grandniece's first dance recital? Let me know. Giving me news to share helps the Daily Poop cover more than just me, me, me.

So, away we go. Our course is set for the Holiday Inn in Virginia Beach.

Anchors Aweigh!
