Panorama of my town

We're off to see the wizard...the wonderful wizard of Oz....

I fly tomorrow baby!!!!! And SO much has happened over the last few days. Where to begin???
Ok 1st, I packed - that was a major accomplishment! And of course I am taking the BIG suitcase because I have 'work clothes' and then like a different outfit (shoes included) for each party occasion.

2nd I got my volunteer assignment confirmed...it is the reason I am going, after all (well that's my story and I'm sticking to it).

3rd I made arrangements for my kid and my dogs to be taken care of while I am out of town....no small feat.

4th I have found like 5 or 6 more people I know who are going to convention, including Kwanza Hall, my City Council Rep, for one. I think ½ the city of Atlanta will be in Denver and the other half wants to be in Denver.

5th I got invited to a luncheon where one of the Clintons are suppose to make an appearance. No truly!! And if this happens I will wet my pants and Cousin Debbie will have to remind me to breathe so I don't hyperventilate and faint. I don’t even care which one shows up – I ADORE them both! (You know, as long as we are here, I never did understand that whole media fiasco around Bill getting a blow job in the Oval Office.)

6th and perhaps the most important, I arranged for a ride to and from airport so I don't have to pay for parking. (hurray!).

Brothers James and Bill arrive into Atlanta tonight at like 11:30PM and as I NEVER get to see them (they live in Manhattan), I suspect I will be up all night visiting and I'll be so excited about my trip I probably won't sleep and I’ll probably talk a million miles a minute and make no sense and I’ll repeat myself as I ramble on about the party plans and people I hope to see and I’ll have to sing at lease one chorus of…I’m off to see the Wizard, the Wonderful Wizard of Oz, I hear he is a Wiz of a Wiz, if ever a Wiz there was….. – I promise, no comments about how much I’d like to see his ‘magic wand’ sitting in that powerful chair – OK?

You come from a long line of unconventional women ... and you're named for two of them!
I'm so proud of you -- you're keeping the line going in wonderful ways.
Love ya,
Mom
