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.

Sarah and Sarkozy

Two radio guys from Ontario impersonating President Sarkozy of France prank called Palin. It is really quite entertaining for a slow Saturday afternoon. Among other things she agrees to go helicopter hunting with him as they conduct business. Enjoy!

Kim, yes, according to news reports. Unbelievable, isn't it?

Jane, you beat me to it -- I was going to post about this! It was too awful and hilarious to believe.

These guys (who are actually from Quebec) call themselves The Masked Avengers and are very funny and notorious for these pranks.

They said today that they have never before tricked anyone for as long as they fooled Palin. They said they couldn't believe she stayed on the phone with them for five minutes!

Apparently, the pranksters reached Palin through her Alaska office. Staff there hadn't ever heard of Sarkozy and needed the spelling of his name. Pretty sophisticated staffers!

Glad you posted this!
