Hey BB, Love the page. Electic, Brit. And the HPV review, spot on.

I'm headed to Shrine Mont today - taking my granddaughter to summer camp. If I see a plate like this at any of the country stores, I'll pick it up for you. : )
(Me thinks the lady doth protest too much!)

Just make sure the cat stays on the plate and doesn't go out the trapdoor.

All protesting and trapdoors aside, I was looking at the flowers and thinking of Mrs. Johnson. The world is a sadder place without her because she saw the beauty in simple things. She didn't plant roses or orchids, she planted wildflowers. For those of us who grew up in the DC are her work made such a difference to our city. I remember as a child driving downtown with my parents and having them point out the flowers and with a slight tone of awe in their voices saying that's what Mrs. Johnson did for us. Today's Post even has an article about her style and praises her for seeing beauty in it's natural form. In an a day and age when we pay doctor's to turn us into cookie cutters we certainly need to remember Lady Bird. And as BB pointed out in an early post, it's not about the money or the cars, it's the simple things in life that really matter. And with all the arguing going on over issues, maybe we can learn something from her, because no matter what she was always a gracious woman.

Yes, the wildflowers along the freeways can still be seen - even after all these years - and perhaps each time we see those wildflowers, we should say a prayer of thanks for LadyBird.

But we also think that LadyBird would never hang a Kitty Plate on the White House Walls. She also had taste.

Sorry, BB, didn't see a kitty plate at the one store we stopped in on trip to Shrine Mont. Maybe another time....

Shouldn't the cat be moving? Why isn't the cat moving?
