Free At Last

I don't think I've ever been happier to see somebody get on a helicopter and leave.

I think this evoked more feeling in me than anything. My mom said she threw a shoe at the tv as they left. haha She's a kook.

PS word verif is CHILL. I'm gonna go do that now.

Amen babe. Wish I had seen that part on the TV. I would have cheered.

AM, your mom ROCKS.

My word verification is punwsi. Sounds like an insult.

Right! And, I cannot fathom a man who is so out of touch that he says, (paraphrased) "I can look in the mirror and say I have no regrets."


Well, actually, I can fathom him. What I cannot fathom is all the mindless people who believed he did a good job. Argh.

Free at last, free at last ... thank GOD ALMIGHTY ... we are free at last.

I thought that quote was appropriate :)

I didn't see this yesterday. Great photo.

I can only imagine the relief he feels, and I suspect it's even greater than yours. I would so not want to have that job.

Nero has left Rome. But Rome is still burning.

We have a lot of work to do to clean up. And yet there are still millions that love him, want to see Rome burn down.

There you go.

Nice blog here. I look forward to dropping by again soon!

That copter picture is going to stay in my mind just like Nixon's copter flight. Yeah, I'm that old.

And, might I add, "obsessed" according to word verification. (I have so been loving the new words nowadays!)

My mother’s take after watching the coverage of the inauguration was “They showed President Bush arriving in Texas. He was greeted by a huge cheering crowd.”

Excuse me? Was she baiting me, or just honestly that was what stood out for her?

I couldn’t resist. I said “Yes, and there was a large crowd cheering that he was leaving.”

“Oh, I just can’t understand all that hateful talk. I’m not a hater,” quoth she.

I've gone searching the blogosphere for like-minded mommies since mine has let me down.

I think this is going to be the beginning of a beautiful friendship with you folks.
