Looks like 1975 was a very good year. I did not realize that Bob Hope was the opening act at the Dome; I had been working at the air base in Alexandria for a couple of years at the time. The ribs at Schwegmann's at $1.09 a pound looked good, and the McKenzie's ad of course brought to mind the TV commercials with Dick Bruce.

This evening I am lighting a candle.
