Eyewitnessing history

I usually don’t brag on family... but my nephew did Inauguration Week right. That’s him and his wife ’n’ kids on the balcony from which they viewed the inaugural parade.

My nephew also got hooked up for several balls and parties. He dapped up Mayor Ray Nagin of New Orleans... and even introduced himself to Aretha Franklin. (Dude is not shy.)

At some point during the several days of hoopla, my nephew’s firstborn son turned to him and said: “Dad, you a baller.”

Brag on Brother... That photo is a shot for the History books!
And “Dad, you a baller.” That could be the "ultra" compliment!

Brag on! He's a stand-up kind of dad with a beautiful family. Congrats to him and his family for being able to witness history up close and personal.

I can imagine no better moment for a dad, intrepid, than when your son tells you you're cool.

So he braved running into Aretha's hat, huh?

LOL! I'm happy he braved those crowds.

I live right here in Maryland and watched from t.v.
