So we blogged for a few weeks and then stopped for a few weeks.
It's not that we didn't have anything to say---It's that we didn't have a whole lot of time.
Here is a quick summary of events since the last blog. We had a lot of fun at Christmas. We visited everybody and tried to do too much.
On New Years, we just basically stayed home. We didn't do much.
Today is Martin Luther King Day---the day before the Inauguration. I am excited in many respects but am bothered in a lot of others. I think it is a wonderful thing that our country has elected a black man to be its president. I am bothered, however, by the underlying presumption that many people in the media seem to have accepted that our country is really in bad shape---that somehow President Bush has destroyed the country. I don't accept that presumption and refuse to be bullied---intellectually or otherwise---into accepting the presumption. I also have fundamental disagreements with the underlying democrat party presumptions. But, hey, my party lost.
I will support the President and am grateful for a country where a peaceful transfer of power is possible. I thank the Founders and our Father in Heaven for that blessing.
And, if no one else will say it, "Thank you, President Bush, for protecting the country and for sacrificing eight years of your life for the country."
