Hey isn’t that… First lady Michelle Obama spending a quiet weekend in Middleburg with daughters Malia and Sasha in tow at the tony Salamander Resort. While the president was being trailed by flashing cameras and notebook-wielding reporters on a four-country tour through Asia, Michelle Obama’s itinerary was a tad bit more low-key. On Friday she was spotted in the lobby of the luxury resort owned by multimillionaire Sheila Johnson.

My neighbors were probably clapping since I finally got around to doing the Spring yard work...

Well, I certainly didn’t eat a spotted salamander, as the title suggested to me.

Middleberg is the abode of the 1% and a few 1/10 of 1 percenters

Superrich.

Driving Rt. 50 through the back country is an treat for anyone who wants to see how they live.

I usually don’t take Rt.50 because it’s so slow, but it is a beautiful drive for a lazy weekend.

Of course, taking 66 at rush hour is like walking home and just as slow.

“Robert Duvall lives round that way.”

I thought he lived Charlottesville way.

In any event, Virginia is just one gorgeous state and I’m happy I am a Virginian.

Last I heard it was Middleburg. Yes, Virginia is a beautiful state. Lots of great Civil War memorials to visit, too.

We make the trip at least once a summer.

Start from Leesburg and take the back way home.

Agonizingly beautiful countryside.

[mostly because Mosby is my hero]

;D

It’s interesting that the president and first lady didn’t combine their recent trips to Asia. I think the rumors of a coming divorce are undoubtedly true.

I remember my mother telling me about Mosby’s Raiders, that they could ride their horses through a cavern system from Winchester to Martinsburg. Now, I know that had to be a legend, but its a good one!

And for those of you who don’t know who Sheila Johnson is, she’s the co-founder of BET, along with her former husband Robert Johnson. They divorced a few years back and she took her cut of the money and moved to Middleburg to live like a capitalist. I doubt if she spent the weekend explaining to Mrs. O and kids about work ethic and earning what you work for.

Too many to count. Judicial Watch had a list of Obama Vacations and their cost a few weeks ago.

And it was either on the taxpayer’s dime or free from a donor. In which case the obamas should owe taxes. But, they’re royalty.

It’s more fun for them to travel separately and really sock it to the taxpayers.

“She was walking through the lobby and everyone stood up and started clapping,’ explained Edgerton."

What? They didn't bow and curtsey?
