Here’s to my Grandson John…

I’m off early this morning as my oldest grandson, John, is having his elementary school graduation AT 8:00 IN THE MORNING! Who has graduations at 8:00 in the morning?

I’m leaving at 7:15 to make sure I get a place to park.

Elly took off at 4:30 this morning to fly to Minneapolis for a  4-day AIGA confernce and she won’t be back until Sunday, leaving me and her friends with her garden maintenance (I drew the back of the house straw… her community garden buddies are taking care of her plants there.) So this is going to be a week of just me and the dogs.

It’s hot out already… hope you have a nice day.

One of the reasons why you have to admire Obama…

He takes ordinary responsibilities seriously.

He may be leader of the free world, but when he takes his dog for a walk, President Barack Obama says he bends down to do the nasty work of cleaning up like anyone else.

Answering questions Friday from youngsters at an elementary school, Obama described going for nighttime walks with first dog Bo on the White House South Lawn. He says that’s fun. But, Obama says, “Sometimes I have to scoop up his poop, because I don’t want to just leave it in the lawn!”

The response from the kids: “Eeew!”

Obama admonished them: “If you guys have a dog, you’ve got to walk your dog, too – and clean up after him.”
