Rose and Denise go to the White House
This is me with our dear friend Rose. Thanks to Gregg's cousin Fayette - thanks Fayette - who diligently worked with her North Dakota Senator's office to get us tickets on one of the White House tours today, Rose, Gregg and I were standing in line at the gate at 9.15 a.m. It was a bit rainy but we weren't outside for long and it was a great tour. Later when things are a little quieter I will share more photos as well as a few of the fun highlights, especially of Rose hugging some of the Secret Service guys and with them very genuinely and only too happy to hug her back. There was much laughter between them and I was so impressed with their friendliness. They were great, great guys and at the same time were clearly doing their job with skill and expertise. What a hoot to see Rose having so much fun. She will be going home and telling her family and friends how wonderful everyone was at The White House. They certainly did us proud.
