The Fruits of Victory

After breaking her back all summer tending to the White House Victory Garden, Lady M finally shoed away the undocumented workers so we could enjoy the fruits of our labors: a photo op. We invited all of the supportive media to join us as we shared the bounty with little children from a nearby school who were glad to be out of class but didn’t seem real excited about the squash and sweet potatoes.

And yes I know there are a couple of “questionable” photos here. I don’t know how many times I have to explain to MO that I can only trans-image and refract in 2 directions at a time. If she insists on inviting ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, Associated Press, Reuters…, well basically everyone except FOX, I’m not going to be able to give her 360 degree coverage. So here we go again:

This is a shot of Lady M pretending to be a peacock. The fennel tail was her idea. I warned her there was a possibility of it making her look like she was playing center for the Washington Redskins. Maybe she’ll listen next time.

Here’s a close up of the mic (just in case she wanted to say a few words off the cuff) and her “hope” for “peace” necklaces. Frankly, I hope we’ve got a back up strategy. Because that whole hopey-changey thing has started looking a little rocky lately.
