Michelle O Meets Chrissie H

When I saw this picture of Michelle O...

...I thought of the iconic photo of another lady in red, Chrissie H.

Too bad W. and his aunt are not positioned differently - that subtle touch of irony would have been classic.

Keith Olbermann's Flag at Half Mast

I like Keith Olbermann but...couldn't he have handled the flag just a smidge differently in this picture?

Get Out of Denver

The invasion of the POD was Monday. The day on which the POD finished swallowing all our belongings was Wednesday. (That's 6600 pounds of food.)

The day on which the POD was met by it's keeper was Thursday.

Today is Friday. George and I signed the papers and deposited the check. Now we return to no-longer-our home, pile Max and Lucy into the truck and well, I guess Bob Seger said it best.

We'll be driving to San Jose, California, where it all began, via route...well, I guess Nat King Cole said that best.

With Election Day and Moving Day, this has been quite a week.

John McCain Gracious?

A gracious man would have said more than Please in an attempt to calm his supporters when they booed the mention of Senator Barack Obama's name during his concession speech. A gracious man would've stopped his speech and directly addressed the haters in his audience that night and at his previous campaign stops. A gracious man would have said that the type of derision they were demonstrating towards the next President of the United States will not be tolerated. A gracious man would've used words to that effect and the real Americans in his audience would've cheered loudest, drowning out the cries of negativity from the likes of him and her.

Instead, John McCain read his words as written - words that, in any other context, might be considered gracious. But, by not directly addressing the fundamental failures of a core section of his supporters, McCain displayed the same failure he referred to in his speech - and I quote - The failure is mine.

John McCain, you are no Barack Obama.

President Barack Hussein Obama

Vice President Joseph Biden

Sounds so nice.

Going Once, Going Twice...

By this time next week, our new President will be Barack Obama (fingers crossed) and there will be a check in our bank account (fingers uncrossed and then recrossed) from the sale of our home in Denver.

We'll also be on the road back to California, the state of my reality and (for the last three years) my dreams.

McCain Supporter Denies Candy To Children

Even more shocking than what this lady did on Halloween was that it was reported objectively by a Fox News affiliate!

Just some more cr*p from McCain supporters.
