This week I received in the mail a very nice Christmas Card from the Obamas, my first presidential Christmas Card. Not sure why I was honored with such a kind gesture? Meg and the dogs and cats names were not on the envelope even though it was signed by the entire Obama family it even had a paw print from the first dog Bo. Should we send them a card with Meg and the dogs and cats names on it so maybe next year we all will get a card? Did I tell you I once owned a pitbull name Bo.
The card was paid for and sent by the Democratic Party, not our tax dollars. I did not give them any money in the past few election although I volunteered weekly during the 2004 campaign. I might have hung up on a few of the campaign calls in the last election too. So did everyone get one of these cards??
I did however sent an e mail to Obama in support of his health care plan, though it was not nearly as good as it could have been. I sent Obama just one letter, must have sent Bush twenty letters and never got a card from him!
We got about 3/4 inch of snow this morning now it is sleeting. Meg's school closed today and I decided I didn't want to drive to Chapel Hill in all this mess. So I've made some soup and changed the air filters and smoke detector batteries.
The birds outside are having a hay day with all the feeders. I moved one from the kitchen window which they ignored to hanging from the oak tree by the deck it had emptied about 3 inches since I put it there a few hours ago.
