Our gang at the Marine Corps Birthday Ball / my 70th birthday party.
Our Gang at my 70th Birthday Party at the Bradenton, Florida Marine Corps Ball. Looking Good! We celebrated with our friends at the Ball. I cut the Marine Corps Birthday Cake with my sword and did not cut anyone, so it worked well.
Thanks to Betty Greenspan and Bob Fields for taking the photos:

In the 4th century, Trier was one of the largest cities in the Roman Empire with a population around 75,000 and possibly as much as 100,000. The Porta Nigra ("Black Gate") dates from this era.

Bull Elephant in Musth Following a Giraffe followed by us.
A giraffe burst out of the brush. Something is chasing it said our guide.
We waited to see the lions in pursuit. But it was a bull elephant.
The elephant was in Musth, where they are extremely aggressive and hyper sexual.
It was not clear whether our elephant was following the giraffe to fight it, or was looking for love in all the wrong places.
The giraffe moved on down the narrow road over a dam grade. The bull elephant followed. And we followed the elephant.
I was not too sure this was a good idea. Our 24 year old guide was knowledgeable but I thought a bit aggressive. But the elephant ignored us and followed the giraffe till they both disappeared in the bush.
