…after hearing Grandma Got Molested at the Airport, by Donny Aldridge.
Don’t play it at the office.
I know a lot of you, like me, have been wondering where ALL HAT, NO CATTLE has been since last Wednesday when Lisa did her last post. I was worried about her (she’s been through a lot lately) and sent her a note.
Just received this back from her (and, if like me you were worried, this should provide some relief):
I’m OK but the software to post my website is broken. Sigh.
I’m trying to get it fixed asap, at least to post a notice but am hampered by caring for my mother with Alzheimer’s. Double sigh.
This too shall pass! lol
I plan on revamping my website and should have it up and running Jan 1.
Wish me luck.
Good luck, Lisa…
America had a very great loss this week with the death of Ambassador Richard Holbrooke, 69, The Bulldozer, who served this country as a negotiator and State Department problem solver for nearly five decades. Known for the Dayton Accords which ended the Bosnia conflict, at the time of his death during 20 hours of surgery for a torn aorta he had been working on the AfPak portfolio… solving the Afghanistan/Pakistan conflict diplomatically.
The Washington Post reports that Holbrooke’s last words came just before the 21-hour operation:
As Holbrooke was sedated for surgery, his final words were to his Pakistani surgeon, family members said: “You’ve got to stop this war in Afghanistan.”
