Must Read

So what on earth has kept me off the blog for so long? Easy to explain. Of course, as usual, it's been insanely busy out here, but there's something else. Something I want to share with you.

I'm sure you've seen at least on of the interviews with President "43" Bush. Personally, I've seen every single one of them. Every one. I knew I had missed him, but I didn't realize how much until he started this book tour.

And that's what I've been doing. Reading his book Decision Points. It's an amazing glimpse into what he was seeing, hearing and debating as he made some of the most important decisions during his Presidency.

It's a fantastic read. Now, I'll step up and admit I am a huge GW fan. Did I agree with everything he said or did while in office? No, I did not. But thanks to this book, I understand why he made so many of the decisions he did.

It's what I term a must read. For everyone. Even if you aren't the fan I am, I have no doubt you'll find it interesting, insightful, enlightening.

I downloaded it to my Kindle, but I'm still buying the hardback version. This is one for my library. This book reflects so much of what has defined me this past decade, defined America.

Read it. Then I'd love to know what you think.

I'm So Ashamed

Well, looks like I'm under the weather. And, as usual, looks like I simply do not have TIME to be under the weather.

It's really busy right now....

BUT, that being said, I needed to take a moment and make an official apology. On behalf of this state I live in. I don't now why or how, but California managed to completely blow it - again - during this past election.

Boxer? We reelected Boxer? How the hell that happened......I don't get it.

And Jerry Brown? WTH!?!? I am speechless on that one.

I said earlier that it is possible I could have been a Happy Californian. Well, I sure don't see that happening any time soon - not with election results like that.

I can only imagine how things are gonna be these next few years. And I want to go on the record telling America I'm sorry you'll be stuck digging us out of this mess.

'Cause we all know it's gonna happen. Sooner or later......

Because you need to see this....

I am slammin' busy. But....I need to take a moment and share a couple of pictures with you.

The first is three of my greatest loves - two of my nieces and Baby Blake. I do have to giggle at this one....he looks, so, so, so smushed in this shot.

Look how beautiful my girls are......

This next one is Mama and Baby Blake. His smile just makes me want to weep. I miss them so very much!
