I live in Texas, I couldnt have picked her out in a crowd. I had no idea what she looked like. She is as quite as a mouse.
Unlike Michelle and Hillary.
There was a Change of Command at Camp Mabry a couple of years ago and Texas’ First Lady Anita Perry and her sister were both in attendance. They came up to several of us and shook our hands.
If it hadn’t been for one of the SR NCOs telling us who they were before they got within earshot of us, I had no idea who they were.
But very much like Barbara and Laura.
Thanks. I love her Texas accent.
Does her own shopping and cooks on the weekends!
She would be a much better First Lady than moochelle. I know she was a very gracious person when we met her that day.
But...but....Michelle is has such fashion sense and Hillary is so ????? and Hillary is so ?????....
