Teh Squeaky Wheel
If “high fives” had been a thing when I was a kid, I might have done the thread pic thing to my brother. (Not kidding…he was kind of a dick in re taking advantage of me being a “too nice” older brother. Until I put a stop to that when I was about eleven.; he would have been eight or nine.)
I wonder what POTUS / FLOTUS gave the Queen? (That Churchill book sounded like an excellent gift to Trump.)
Glad I mowed the front lawn yesterday morning given we have several days of thunderstorms headed our way. (I really missed those during my time in CA.)
Lawns sound like a lot of work. Have you thought of replacing it with gavel?
SackO’SugarK is not a fan of xeriscaping. (Nor am I, truth be told.)
Happy Tuesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!
I wonder what POTUS / FLOTUS gave the Queen?
Here’s what I found online:
The President and First Lady brought the Queen a silver and silk Tiffany & Co. poppy brooch, in a custom wood White House jewelry box in a red leather box. The poppy is a symbol of a remembrance, usually of the soldiers lost in the First World War, but it may have been chosen in part to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day, which is Thursday.
I also saw this:
The Trumps also brought Prince Philip a gift. Though the Duke of Edinburgh was not in attendance at any of the official events, the President and First Lady gave him a personalized Air Force One jacket and the signed autobiography of legendary World War II aviator James Doolittle, I Could Never Be So Lucky Again. Prince Philip is a pilot and World War II veteran.
Given the Queen’s own WW2 service that seems very nice.
Those gifts are a tich classier than an iPod full of Il Douchey’s speeches. (Or of Trump’s Tweets.) 😉
Thanks a bunch for that info.
From today’s emailbag:
Good thing I wasn’t eating or drinking when I read that.
I know what you mean, maaaaan…
