Default Good Afternoon..He's gone and I'm back

After reading all of your post,.. I got a good chuckle out of them escpecially "jason's"..what a nut?...Okay..here is the scoop..we have had the VP in town since yesterday eve..we were to have no internet communications and no wireless communications, of courxe this was for security reasons. The Sec Servc has been crawling all over the place..now I worked for the PD when Clinton was Presd and they never put up this much ado..but that was pre 9/11..so I guess it has all changed. But I will tell you this much..our govt spent enough money just in helicoper fuel for all of us to go on a 10 day cruise....I have never seen so much hardware in my life as far as vehicles and aircraft..we did have a crew(2)that was assigned to him and even spent the night right next to him ( in the next room)..they are just now telling all the stories so I am getting bits and pieces so far...all I know is that the security was tighter than a tick on a dog...>G< and I have'nt been anywhere..just right here with my mouth shut..which has about made me sick and I am about to blow a gasket....Thanks for all your concern and posts you left for me to read..I really appreciate that. Now I must go catch up on the rest of them..I AM BAAAACK !!

DH and I were figuring that it had to be some VP, and it was!! Glad that you survived the no talk time! Welcome back!

Glad to have you back and talking, Big John! We missed you around here yesterday. Good thing we have Jason and some of the other comedians to help take up the slack. Of course there is always Ray too, and his posting of rat pictures.

I guess the VP was really in some secret, undisclosed location--at least that's what we thought because we didn't know where YOU were! Glad to have you back. Trip and I have the same memory of that commercial because I mentioned yesterday!!! Great minds think alike.

Now what is the VP REALLY like, or didn't you get close enough to see him? Lynne

I haven't seen the news (CNN) so didn't even know he was out and about. I remember Secret Service Guys all over the place during the Memorial Service for the Victims of the Rapid City Flood in 1972. Pat Nixon was there representing the President. I was with a singing group that performed there.She was in the front row. They had those little lapel pins they talked into on their suits. The Service was at the local high school, and we thought security was tight ,then. Compared to now, it was probably fairly lax.I'm sure your day or so was pretty active.

At least it was a change of pace for you. Glad you're back on, too. Lynne
