Wednesday Morning

My daughter and granddaughter left here at 4:30 this morning - to meet up with the rest of their posse and head out for Yellowstone.  How exciting it was last night to watch my granddaughter's excitement about leaving for vacation!  When I was a child, we would always pull out of the driveway long before dawn to start our summer vacation.  I am so glad that my granddaughters get to have this excitement.

Last night I was glued to CNN - and dragged the rest of the family into the drama with me.  There is something so fascinating about watching someone be delusional in front of the entire world.   I told my granddaughter that when I was her age, I paid attention to a presidential election for the first time.  It was 1960, and I got to see the contest between Richard Nixon and John Kennedy.  That was a long time ago!

I am off to my Wednesday morning meeting and my regular meeting with a sponsee this morning.  I look forward to this meeting every week.  

Have a nice sober Wednesday everyone, OK?

I don't really remember anything about that 1960 election. But I do remember going to see JFK make a specch in a big park south of downtown Houston. I was 6.

MC. I love departing for vacation, how thrilling for them!

I am curious to see who you saw last nite as delusional... Those were the first speeches I,ve watched in months...

I was glued to MSNBC. 1960 - I remember my Grandmother was so fearful that if Kennedy was elected that only the Catholic Bible (?) would be allowed. She was not pleased with my being a JFK supporter. But we still loved each other.

I remember those summer vacations. Some of them were good and some not so good. But it is or was a family thing to do.

There is a special thrill in that moment of anticipation just as you are taking off for a vacation. What fun!

I just shook my head....and I guess had to add her to my prayers.
