7. You're SO good to us, my friend. Thanks, saved all to hard drive (which also gets copied to thumb

drive and stored in bank box with other treasures!)

Our president IS beautiful, inside and out. Not just because of his color, but because of his soul. And he is black. Yes ma'am, indeed - and we can all take pride in that for the sake of our whole nation and world. Not that we had anything to do with making him who and what he is, but we can take part with him by showing our support and love no matter who's watching. Sometimes, especially when certain less perceptive folks are watching. They might learn a thing or two.

No John Waynes or Stallones or Eastwoods for me, thank you kindly. They give me nightmares.

The first picture with MLK reminds me of watching The Story of Vernon Johns on tv long ago. He was played by James Earl Jones. When the Ebenezer Baptist Church committee finally dismissed him for his activism, one of the last scenes showed them welcoming the new pastor from whom they expected a much lower profile presence: Dr. Martin Luther King.

That still turns my tickle box over. Talk about unintended consequences!

(If I err in the recounting, do forgive me and offer correction. I'm extremely exhausted right now, and you know what that can do to a person. So I'll quote my beloved Bob Dylan and say I'm telling the truth as best I can recall it at the moment.)
