Quote of the Day
PRESIDENT BUSH:(to Afghan President Karzai)I want to thank you for your friendship and your commitment to freedom. I especially want to thank you for being such a wonderful host to my wife, Laura. She came back overwhelmed by the experience, touched by the people she met, and optimistic about the future for your country. So thanks for being a good host and thanks for being such a fine inspiration to not only the people of your country, but showing the countries in your neighborhood what's possible.

I asked a rhetorical question on Saturday whether or not Laura would have met Liz Cheney on her visit to the Middle the following photos show that she has in deed met her and in fact she seems to be following a similar schedule.


Laura Bush waves after being greeted by Judy Nir-Moses Shalom, right, the wife of Israeli Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom, at Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion airport Sunday, May 22, 2005. Mrs. Bush arrived in Israel for a one-day visit, that will include the Palestinian town of Jericho, from Jordan where she attended the World Economic Forum conference on the Middle East on Saturday. At left is Liz Cheney, the daughter of US Vice-President Dick Cheney


Elizabeth Cheney, United States deputy assistant secretary of state for near eastern affairs, Dr. Hamdan Taha, Director General of Antiquities, and United States first lady Laura Bush look at the Tree of Life mosaic at Hisham's Palace in the West Bank town of Jericho, May 22, 2005. Here are a couple of photos of her with Liz today

yippie !! doesn't laura come home tomorrow ??
Ugh....
Here's a story about my 1st hour today.
Today was another "Clinton was the best ever" talk in 1st hour. Joy.
Then I get my word in, "Clinton didn't do anything besides hurt us all in the long run"
Then everybody gives me the look.
I tell em "Yeah, I know there's been rough times, but you can blame your Billy boy for everything"
The Look again.

Talking about 9/11
Me-" Don't tell me Clinton didn't have any clues about this before he left ??? He had 8 years in office blah blah blah"
This time a real evil look.

We Don't need to be in Iraq anymore blah blah blah.

Me If JK was in office right now, he would pull out all of our troops and the war would be here. Now where would you rather have a war ?? here....or someplace else ??

Silence.

Evil Look.

Bell Rings.

The End.


But there's been some great pictures to brighten up my day so I there's always light at the end :)

Have a good night !!!
Kelly
