No malaise here!

Yep, that’s me and Jawa Girl with President and Mrs. Carter. They still live in Plains, GA (pop. 675 or thereabouts) and we went down to hear him speak this weekend.

The mug I am holding was a gift from my beloved late Aunt Ginny, who was for many years the only other Democrat in the family (for all I know, that has not changed). It has a picture of President Carter on it.

Also, it seemed appropriate to wear a sweater when meeting the man.


No, not the clinic in Chicago. I’ve never been to that, and I desperately want to go.

We are back in the Midwest. Family pictures with the in-laws, lots of eating, then over to Indiana on Christmas itself for time with my family. Hoping to see an old friend or two as well.

Anyone traveling?
