Our day started at 6:40 AM with the pooches eating and pottying just as the rain was getting underway here in The Miami Valley. I thought I heard distant thunder and wanted to move things along.
Today, I have two Zoom events, both led by my friend, Valerie Gugala, a Mary Lincoln and Lincoln historian. One, on presidential homes, will be during lunch and the second, on Lincoln, is at 7:00 PM. I am looking forward to both presentations.
While writing this post and alternating between emails and social media birthday greetings, I am listening to “Bringing Lincoln to Life: A Conversation with Doris Kearns Goodwin and Ivan Schwartz.” I love listening to Ms. Goodwin, but I especially enjoy her interviews and discussions on her book, THE BULLY PULPIT. She is passionate about all her subjects but there is an additional spark when she speaks about presidents Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft.
The study is quiet, except for Deeds barking at and dancing around the inanimate spoon. It’s cute. The older four dogs have moved on to the bedroom and I am sure they are hoping I will join them. It may happen in an hour or so. A mid-morning nap on this rainy, grey day seems to beckon.
Make it a great day!
