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.

Obama's Official Portrait

New official portrait released

Today we are releasing the new official portrait for President Barack Obama.

It was taken by Pete Souza, the newly-announced official White House photographer.

It is the first time that an official presidential portrait was taken with a digital camera.

This is from Obama's Change.Gov site

He's mighty good looking but does have ears!

Hi Jane, Great portrait! He sure looks presidential and distinguished ears and all!

Have a wonderful, wonderful trip! I'm so happy that you, your husband and Casey will get to experience the swearing in ceremony in person. I'll be tuning in and watching it on TV and will definitely be thinking of you all.

I'm looking forward to hearing about your experiences and Casey's thoughts and impressions when you all return.
