God sometimes gives us unexpected gifts. Our gift has been a grandson who enlivens our lives and makes retirement very different than the one we anticipated. He is a special joy. And that's "Casey." In 2006 we fulfilled our dream of living in Italy for a year. It was every bit as wonderful as anticipated. This blog begins in 2005 as we prepared for that experience. Since then we have explored many places together. That's the "Travel." And finally, I am a person of opinions--spiritually, politically, on just about anything and that's the "Other Stuff." Welcome to my blog.

A Different Kind of Woman

After focusing on Sarah for so long, it was with real pleasure that I read this take on another woman in the limelight right now--Michelle Obama. Have you noticed that she continues on with her life even as she supports her husband? Unlike Cindy McCain, she is not needing to establish herself as an appendage of her husband. Does John go any place with out Cindy? Sometimes I wonder if she is there to prop him up in the event his body fails him--a not unreasonable concern given his age and health history.

Anyway, link to the article on Michelle--it will leave you feeling good! What a First Lady she would make!

Michelle Obama is tall, smart, funny, relaxed and basically so glowy and poised — if she's attractive in pictures, she's flat-out gorgeous in person — that it almost seems as if she already is the First Lady.

Obama'a a lucky man!

We women need more like her.

Jane, I am very much hoping to get the opportunity to learn much more of her. From here, you must know, it is hard to get more than a surface look.

Jane, I was very impressed when I watched Michelle Obama on the View back in the summer.
She is an asset, a great role model to her girls and supportive of her husband.
She was straight forward when answering the questions asked of her.

The vote is coming up soon.

June, you are so right on! Did you see her last night on Larry King? Or do you get him in Canada?
