Your daughter is lovely!
OK…You don’t think those opening words grabbed this father’s attention (and heart)? In fact, I read those words again. As far as this dad is concerned, he could have said that about either one of my girls and he would have been dead-on-right.
Right now I’m sitting in Panera Bread. We had a big storm in Waco last night and it knocked out the e-mail/Internet system at the office. So–I ended up working here some today. Free Wi-fi and that is a good thing today! It has rained and rained the last 24 hours. Pretty unusual for Central Texas in August. President Bush is at his ranch in Crawford (about a 30 minute drive from where I’m sitting). He is here every August about this time. Normally, it is hot. Oven hot! I understand the heat and dust has been a subject of much discussion for the press corp assigned to the President. Not so this year. It has been a very nice week.
Now what did he say again? Oh yeah, "Your daughter is lovely!" What a smart guy…
