Petals from pink blossoms scattered on the street where I live.
Breaking news: Senator Arlen Specter, a Republican since 1966, has just announced he is switching parties! Specter said he decided to become a Democrat because the Republicans had "moved too far to the right."
Meanwhile, Texas Governor Rick Perry called for secession from the Union; then appealed to the federal government for help, at the first sign of swine flu. Talk about an abrupt about-face! And the Republicans continue to try to block Kathleen Sibelius to head Health and Human Services. Seems like we need someone in that position at the moment, politics aside. Of course in this case, it's a little like casting pearls before swine. I'm so tired of certain politicans putting their own interests ahead of the people.
Speaking of swine (flu), I'm not exactly thrilled to be getting on an Atlanta-bound plane early tomorrow morning, especially after the European Union health commissioner cautioned against non-essential travel to the US and Mexico. But I suspect attending my daughter's wedding in Savannah counts as essential.
Thanks for all your lovely email and good wishes. Will catch up with you next week!
