Looks like a pretty exciting day, not too many people get to experience what you did!

I also want to thank you for your sacrifices.

In addition to thanking you vets for your service, and especially the active duty guys, I just wanna say that's a dang nice tie the POTUS is wearing. Wonder where he got that?

Right now I am between classes. I teach college students. I probably should have taken leave this week but I hate to waste my leave when I have no plans. I work for the Federal Guberment. But if it makes you feel anybetter the next several weeks I will be very very busy.

You can respect the position of the man when he's voted in. But in a case where he loses 2 times, yet still wins the presidency somehow......that doesn't deserve any respect.

Cool pics!

But I can one up you. I rode with him at his ranch in Crawford a couple years ago(along with 10 other invited people and about 8 Secret Service).

George Bush is one of the nicest people anyone can ever meet. Real down to earth, honest, nice guy. Secret Service guys were really nice guys too.

He's a decent rider too. I think if he had more time to train he would be very competitive in his age group in the Sport Class.
