    Congratulations VC!
    Hey there Ms. Chips.

    Okay. These pics have me smiling inside and tearing up outside.
    Who can connect us to human beings that we have never ever met except PBO?
    Instead of chocolates and a cup of green tea when I sit down for my daily dose of TOD.
    Now, I bring a box of tissues because I expect to laugh until I cry or cry until I laugh.
    I have long stopped saying “This is my favorite picture”. I get tired of lying to myself.
    How the GOP lie effortlessly is certainly not a human trait.
    Thank you for making me cry until I laugh.
    So beautiful and heartfelt.
    The respect just takes my breath away.

      {{{ LDS }}} Name it, gurl!! I find myself thinking after browsing some of the article on Dowd (bah): just when we wonder how a human can be entirely bereft of Soul Awareness, some one or other of the GOP show us a new depth to which they seem willing to plunge. They must love the Darkness, or money, hard for us to know! Here we have daily visible proof of how much Love and Light President Obama brings with him everywhere, shares with all, how people anticipate his arrival in their locality for weeks, maybe months, and are so visibly able to join on a higher level of the human existance. So be it. We all have the freedom to choose, no matter how rich or poor we may be materially. God Bless our President Bear On The Loose, and may he love Alaska asang of us have done, who have been gifted to visit, live or dwell there for a time. (Pre-pipeline – 1973 – staggeringly beautiful out in the bush. ❤ 🐻

    There’s no fool like an old Republican fool. Here’s one.

      The last thing that I will associate with The Donald is masculinity and strength. I even wonder what these younger wives of his see. I know, I know. His cash. But masculinity and strength? Please! Maybe in his vulgar vernacular. Nowhere else.

      As I watched POTUS arriving live through my smart phone, I wondered if the Governor was a Republican. He became independent in 2014 just before his win. Republicans are afraid of their bases and would never show decency for fear of being demonized by their flocks.

      Y’all what’s that square white thing on the bottom of PBO’s shoe?

    This tiny Alaskan village is beyond excited over Obama’s visit: ‘Pinch me!’ mayor says

    Serena won first match. I think the opponent had to retire because of injury. But Serena had won first set 6-0.
