I knew the President was coming to town, but I did not expect him to greet us. When we arrived on the beach, Air Force One came in over the lake, performed a broad sweeping turn over the bay, and then flew low directly over us, heading for the airport. We waved and I swear we could see him waving back. And I'll bet I know what he was thinking: he'd much rather grab his boogie board and join us playing in the waves.
Too bad he didn't stop, he missed a fun cookout after the swim. Next time, Pres, you're always welcome. We'll keep the Killepitsch on ice for you.
