Ok, looks like I will be getting up early tomorrow. We had friends and family over for supper tonight. Lots of wine, food, friends, and family. Carol made all my favorites: pot roast, london broil, corn, mashed potatoes, pasta salad, carrot cake and pineapple upside down cake. Oh yeah, did I mention wine? Dennis brought over some “two buck Chuck”, which was quite good. Guess it proves “the more you pay the more its worth” is not always the rule.
We also played “ImagineIf”, and in my honor (or shame) all the questions were about me.
Anyway, this is all getting reading a little too real. I am realizing how much I am going to miss all that is my life. Well, there is no turning back.
PS. I’m getting up early because I still haven’t finished packing. A procrastinator to the end. Plus, they are for calling for snow tomorrow in DC. So, things could go wrong real fast. I do not want to spend hours in the airport WAITING to get on a 14 hour flight.

Thanks Cindy and Eric.
Well, being so wrapped up in my own world these past couple of days, I didn’t get a chance to catch much news on the inauguration. Read the text of the President’s speech this morning and was very impressed. Don’t imagine it will impact the trade deficit, but making freedom our number one export makes a lot of sense to me. Not only is it the right thing to do, it is in our national security interests to end tyranny and oppression. And yes, I know we don’t have the capability and resources to make this happen everywhere. I read a good analogy though: I am not personally able to help every homeless person I encounter. Does that mean I should help none of them? “Spare change, mister?” “Gee, I would really like to help you out, but since I can’t give money to everyone I am just gonna have to tell you sorry. Have a nice day!”
Anyway, I said in an earlier post that a person holding traditional liberal values is no longer welcome in the Democratic party. Compare and contrast these inaugural speeches and tell me if I’m wrong.
Ok, gotta go pack.
