MIAGD: Barbara Bush

MIAGD: Make it a great day

I rose promptly at 8:00 PM, not without grumbles, and attended to The Haasienda’s Quartet, and found my way back to my bed after a good eight hours of sleep.

I finally roused myself and mowed the yard for the last time.

Now, I am eating lunch and half-watching a You Tube video of  “An Evening with Barbara Bush and Laura Bush.”  It’s fantastic.

I didn’t realize how much I missed Mrs. Barbara Bush until I heard her voice, this morning.  I miss her candor and her tremendous humor.

My first impression of Barbara Bush was shortly after her husband’s 1988 election when she and the President-elect were interviewed by Barbara Walters.  The esteemed interviewer echoed the concern that Mrs. Bush had not selected her inaugural gown with a little over a month to go before the event.

“I’m having difficulty finding inaugural gowns on the rack at Lane Bryant.”

She won me over with her self-deprecating humor.

Continue to rest in peace, Dear First Lady!

Make it a great day!
