Today I received something interesting in the mail. The return address said "George W. Bush". "What is this?"I wondered. Then I remembered I had sent the former POTUS a card back in October to thank him for his service to our country. So he and Mrs. Bush sent me some lovely headshots. Totally made my day. Now we'll see if I can control the urge to make copies and give them to my ultra-liberal friends and familiy members as gifts. DH and I both laughed at the thought. We did decide to put them in frames and be sure to put them out for special guests like the family member who think indicting the former POTUS is a good idea. So thanks again, President Bush. You served us well for 8 years, and now I can use this kind gesture to tease people. Why does that make me so happy? I'm sick and twisted and a Republican with very liberal relatives who take themselves WAY too seriously. And NO the sick and twisted has nothing to do with being a Republican. I'm pretty sure I inherited the demented sense of humor from my Democratic side of the family. That's what they get for encouraging me to be a free thinker! Here's the card. I made a different one for Pres Obama to welcome him to the White House a few weeks later. We'll see if he sends me a headshot. I'll let you know. I have his next card all planned out in my head. It'll have a big ole hunk of pork on the front. I may even add some bling.
Want to hear another cool factoid? Under the Bush administration -If you sent them a birth annnouncement, they sent your child a sweet little official looking letter welcoming them to the world. I'm not sure if that's something every president does or not, but I thought it was cool and Caleb still has his presidential welcome.
I'll leave it at that for now. Unless you really want to know what I think... I have a few more opinions for another day. Have a hoot!
