    she is such a beautiful little girl and just brings a smile to my face when I see her pictures. You are both so lucky to have found each other

    My current Av is my daughter, Jessie. When she was a teenager, she occasionally wore her hair in braids and she also had braces. She just looked like a cute little nerdy kid. This is one of my favorite pictures of her from that time, I think it was in about 2003 or 2004 when we were visiting her Dad's family in central Pennsylvania. She is now almost 21, a college junior (go dawgs!) and hasn't had braces or braids for quite awhile. But she still has a great sense of humor and she is definitely my greatest joy. I just get a kick out of seeing that picture....it brings back lots of good memories.

    This is me voting for Obama. I'm just elated about this inauguration and what it means historically for our country. We have a half day tomorrow and I'm going to lean on my students to watch the swearing in when they get home if they weren't already planning to. Someday they will want to tell their children they were "present" for this event.
    Count your blessings!

    There will be billions of people either present or watching the inaugural ceremonies tomorrow! It will be something to remember. I hope all goes well.

    Great Av, Gut.

    I too am looking forward to tomorrow with my avatar. My 2 poli sci classes have assigned the inauguration as homework and we have to be prepared to talk about it on Thur. And it looks like we are going to get the snow through tonight and tomorrow which means snow day and so the only class that didn't cancel probably will and I can stay home and watch the inauguration live instead of on tape. They were showing it at school in the student union which I also thought would be fun. I think it would be great to be in a place where lots are watching it.
    Very historical and proud moment for the US.

    Very cool car Unk!!! Somebody here in my hometown had one very much like that, he used to ride around town in his big old cowboy hat singing at the top of his lungs. Do you crank up the radio and sing along when you're driving yours?

    No singing but we crank up the tunes. I do have a couple of special hats that I wear.

    Thought we could use THE LOOK since it will be two years the 31st, and I still miss that little girl. Well off to brush Joey..
