The transfer of power between President Obama and our new President Trump. Who would have ever thought Donald Trump could or would become President? I, for one, never thought it could happen. But here we are.
This is not a political blog, nor will I discuss politics. I just believe so strongly in this country and the democratic process. I have always been proud to be an American even when things have not always gone well for us. I'm sometimes ashamed of the way some particular people act, but never of us as a whole.
I watched as much of it as I could. And I took some photos off of the TV. I did this because I know this is a historic day.
I really liked seeing the former presidents. Especially Jimmy Carter. He looks good for 92 years old. I haven't seen him in a long time and I was glad he and Rosalind were looking so well. And with all his health problems too.
Ah, where do the years fly? They seem to vanish before my eyes.
I didn't get to see it all because I had to run to the hospital to get my mammogram. I got there in plenty of time. And after filling out the yearly paperwork (don't they keep them on file?) I was taken right back. And I was in and out in no time. They have a new 3-D digital machine which they have had for only three weeks. It was fast!
But as I was waiting to go in, an alarm began to ring and a light to flash. Then an announcement came over for the second floor nurses station to evacuate. (We were on the first floor.) I think the words the announcer used was "must leave immediately." There was another lady with me who said she was scared. I said, "Don't worry. If it's something bad, they will come and get us." She was really upset and thought they would forget we were there. But all of a sudden the alarm stopped sounding and the light stopped flashing. Just then the tech came to get me. I asked her what had happened and she said it was a fire, but just a small one and to not be alarmed. O...K...!
Tonight Joe and I had a date night. We had gotten a gift card for Chick-fil-A for Christmas from some friends so decided to make use of it. It was so nice to just sit there and eat and talk and then I could walk away without doing the dishes! 😉
Today my brother Larry, sister-in-law Kim, Joe and I are going to Ronks in Lancaster County to celebrate Larry's and my birthday. We were going to do it earlier but the weather kept us away two weeks ago and last week Larry and Kim moved into their new home. So exciting! So Joe and I are going to meet them there and get a tour of the house and then go to lunch. It's going to be fun.
And now I am going to have to run or I won't make it out there in time. Hope you all have a good day.
