I am so Excited to be able to meet....


Good Morning! Yep that is me in the pink shirt. My friend Erin in the uniform next to me and myself were so excited to get to meet the First Lady on Monday August 4, 2008. Air Force One stopped here at Eielson AFB, Alaska to refuel before going over to Asia. The President made a nice short speech then spent 45 minutes shaking hands, signing autographs and just doing small chit chat with the troops. I tried to get a hand shake but I just couldn't get close enough. I really admire our First Lady, Laura Bush. Their daughter Barbara is also in the photo.
I have been busy making some new Fall/Halloween folk art. I am hoping to get them on the website before I go on vacation. My parents are flying up here to visit for a week. I am really excited about seeing them. We have been planning this vacation since last fall. Unfortunately my husband won't be able to go because he is over in the desert. He will be coming home in about 1 month. I am really looking forward to seeing him. Well I must go and finish up my projects. My dad wants to try some gold panning while they are here so I need to find more information on recreational gold panning. Have a wonderful day!!

I couldn't help but respond to your statement about trying to get recreational gold mining info for your Dad. Please see my recreational gold mining blog, "Bedrock Dreams," at http://auseekersfe.blogspot.com/. I have more than 80 posts on various aspects of panning and mining, so I think I can help. If the blog doesn't do it, then e-mail me at jr872vt90@yahoo.com and I will answer any questions for you. Good luck!

I want to thank you and your husband for serving our country...
So many people don't relize how hard it is on the family left behind, even if it is only for a TDY....Those months are long and lonely, especially in the evenings, when other families are sitting down to diner and family activities...I admire you girl....

Hugs
