2005 U.S. Presidential Inauguraton Event (January 19 - 21)


The Black Tie & Boots story is about attending the 2005 U.S. Presidential Inauguration and social activities of President George W. Bush, one of our relatives!  This event is sponsored by the Texas State Society of Washington D. C. Both Suzanne and I are annual members of it. My own Congressional Representative that year, Kay Granger (Former Mayor of Fort Worth), was President of the TSWDC that year. It has photos and an embarrassing story about my seeking to purchase tickets to the Ball!   This story is about 10 pages.
