Hi sweet you and Merry Chirstmas!
President and First Lady Laura start to walk away after addressing the press. In the bottom photo, I think their faces 'speak to the experience with the press.'
"Look, Laura -- another anal retentive posing as a journalist. Tut tut.."
I just got "lucky"

Merry Christmas, onyx. Thank you for the lovely dose.
Hi Miss Marple. He awarded 16 Purple Hearts today. I regret that photos of each recipient were not available, but I note that at least two won two Purple Hearts. Talk about REAL heroes! We are humbled by our brave troops and ever so thankful for them and grateful unto them.
I love that picture. Merry Christmas everyone!
