Are We Having Fun Yet?

I can’t believe it – I’m in the Windy City with Lady M and the family!

Even little Bo. We’re blowing off Washington for the the whole Memorial Day Weekend. We’ll all be staying at the old family home, which Lady M said seems a little cramped now.

U.S. President Barack Obama (2nd L), first lady Michelle Obama (2nd R) and their daughters Sasha (L) and Malia (3rd L) depart Andrews Air Force Base for a weekend in Chicago May 27, 2010.I love how we all co-ordinate when we travel as a pack

I was a little surprised we weren’t going to be in town for the traditional Arlington Cemetery ceremony – we always used to go. But since Big Guy’s brain is in Israel for his son’s bar mitzvah, I guess we tried to wing it. Lady M said Big Guy was under a lot of stress and needed a little vacation. And I guess Toes told Big Guy it was ok for him to skip the tribute to the fallen heroes as long as he went up to West Point last weekend to remind them all that he’s the president and thus has absolute power over their lives. 


Actually, I was afraid it was Lady M who refused to go, because of all the mean things the Fox News Trolls said about her last appearance there to honor fallen heroes.

If you don’t remember it, let’s just say it came to be known as the ‘ammunition belt incident,’ and leave it at that.

Anyway, I’ll keep you posted on any interesting developments here on the shore of Lake Michigan. Maybe if we have enough bubbly I can even get back to you with some clarification on precisely who it was that did not offer Sestak a job, and why, even if they had, it had nothing to do with him dropping out of the PA senate race.

This is going to be fun. I just love a good whodunit.
