    Thanks Chipsticks. Oh I wish I could have been in Trinidad and Tobago then.

    Awwwh!!! Chipsticks you are so thoughtful. Thank you so much.

    Looking back, it was a great time to be in Trinidad. I tell you when we saw this photo on the newspaper the next day it was the talk of the town.

    I made a yes we can banner and stood out on the highway with some of my neighbors waiting for the President to pass by.
    When he did I was so excited I forgot I was also videotaping and was jumping and yelling like crazy.

    I saw him wave at us though.

      Donna, that is the SWEETEST story!! It must have been such an amazing day for you, I’m cracking up at the thoughts of how your video looked in the end …. like you were on a trampoline???

      Confession: When I was younger I was a HUGE cricket fan (less so now), and the West Indies were my sporting heroes: Viv Richards, Gordon Greenidge, Malcolm Marshall, Michael Holding, etc. So, when I first saw this photo of Brian ‘Godlike’ Lara with the President, well, it was like my two paradises had collided 🙂

      Luv ya Donna!
