July 14th in Grand Lake...not just another night, it's Bastille Day at Caroline's Cuisine!! A tradition Jean Claude has entertained for many, many years. There is always a fantastic menu of french cuisine, music and of course the 'Can-Can'. This years band included Bobby Walker, Brad Pregeant, Patrick Brower and 'NO SHOW' Walter Holland(who , naturally was not in attendance)....se la vie!
I haven't attended 'Bastille Night' at Caroline's for a few years but it was just as I remembered. Lots of good friends(some of them even French) like Martine, Lydia, Serge and, naturally, Jean Claude. 'Pierre le Painter' was sporting his berret and mustache and ooh la laaing all the french wenches. Dancing and singing the french national anthem (I just hummed along), plenty of smiles and good vibes. It was fun to be a Cormier for the night. Viva la France!!!
post script... all out thoughts and prayers are with Zack Peterson and Jim and Suzi
