We've seen pics of the ceremony. Let's see what you were doing on The Day!
Here's me at the End-The-War rally at the University of Washington, an hour or so after the inauguration ceremony:



And here's what my MacBook travel case looks like:

1. My dear Aristus! Updated at 3:43 PM
Ah, sweetie...you look great!

I love your stickers too...

Alas, there are no pics of me from that day...

I spent the day indoors, watching TV with my friends in DC!

:hug:

2. Thanks, CalPeg. I wore my flag lapel pin that day for the first time in seven years.
What an incredible day!

And that's okay that you don't have pics. I'm just glad you were able to be in D.C. that day. :-) :hug:

4. Here I am..also in Seattle


This was right as Obama finished the oath!

I had worked all night(my usual shift). I was exhausted, and had to run some cable down to Seattle Center (Center House) for our live shot. The damn street sweeper rolled by and severed out cables to our live truck.
The guy on the phone behind me is one of our photogs. Hardest work man I know. I am happy, honest...I just don't look it!
After this, when Obama started his speech I booked it to my wife's office. She works at a law firm that is all about civil rights, constitutional law, employment law. Very very left firm. Watched the rest of the speech there, and had a nice breakfast.
Long hard day, but a great day nonetheless.

7. Yeah, you DO look tired! I'm glad we could be in the same city for the great day!
B-)

Could you PM me with the name of the firm? I never know when it might come in handy. Also, I have a cousin who is a civil rights lawyer. I'm very proud of him...

5. Hey, handsome
:hi:

I have that same "Yes we did" sticker. :)

I don't have any pictures of me that day. I spent it on my sofa, with the television on and my laptop running live webstreams. I had a bottle of Thera-flu and a bottle of champagne and was alternately laughing, cheering and crying all day.

It was wonderful. :bounce:

8. Heya gorgeous!
:hi:

Sorry to hear you were sick that day. But getting ourselves such a terrific President must have been some medicine, huh? B-)

10. I looked something like this



Cat on lap, modding since about 8 that morning. Woke up godawful early, 7:30 or so. Ack.


I was going to get dressed and get a celebratory lunch-and-a-beer at a local place, but ultimately I couldn't tear myself away from the TV and computer!
