Old Home Week, Part II

I spent the better part of my day today watching seven hours of Senate Confirmation Hearings for Cliff’s former colleague and friend, Oklahoma Attorney General, Scott Pruitt.  He has been tapped to to head the EPA, and in today’s polarized society, has come under some pretty heavy fire from the left. We first met Scott and his sweet wife Marlyn, back in 2002 when Cliff … Continue reading Old Home Week, Part II

Old Home Week

I spent some time this morning watching the Senate confirmation hearings for Rex Tillerson, Trump’s nominee to be Secretary of State, and it took me down a path to my past. Sitting at the front table with Tillerson was Sam Nunn, former U.S. Senator (D-GA), and Bob Gates, former Secretary of Defense, head of the CIA and probably a lot of other National Intelligence entities I … Continue reading Old Home Week

She has a gift for the gab and uses words to produce such an interesting  commentary which usually always makes me laugh…or cry, depending. Evidently, she is staying at our hotel and was in … Continue reading Star Struck in Cleveland

Refreshing Difference

Like most Americans, Cliff and I have spent the past 24 hours glued to the t.v. watching the coverage of the tragedy in Nice, the attempted military coup in Turkey and wondering what the heck is happening in our world!  Seriously makes me want to hug my almost grown babies a little tighter and pray for our world. But, sandwiched in-between the international news coverage was … Continue reading Refreshing Difference

Cleveland 2016

We’re going to Cleveland, Ohio next month,  home of LeBron, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and site of the 2016 Republican National Convention. I have never traveled to Cleveland before, or anywhere in the Buckeye State, so I will happily check that one off the bucket list of state’s I have never seen.  But, here is the kicker.  My husband ( the Senator..well, now … Continue reading Cleveland 2016
