What a beautiful, inspiring day yesterday was. I dare even say, it was the most beautiful inauguration I've witnessed. A weight lifted, and much anger has left me. What I enjoyed the most , was that many of the people who have restored my faith in the country and politics in general, were altogether in one place. The President and First Lady, Joe and Jill Biden, Madame Vice-President Kamala Harris, President Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton, President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama, Former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Senator Amy Klobuchar. I have no problem admitting my bi partisan tendencies...and even loved seeing President George W and Laura Bush there. And while I was by no means a fan or even liked Mike Pence, puke, I was at least glad he had balls enough to come and give some sort of tradition to past along while his mob boss ran away like a little baby. But did anyone really want the dump there? If he did watch the news, Ill bet he shit himself. And it's why I adore Joe Biden. He even said we can't look at everything as them and us , red and blue. If we don't change our way of thinking, this isn't going to work. So today, I feature this post, a post of my favorite moments that got me and blew me away. I want to look back one day and see this post and remember the feeling. It was a glorious day. I had asked my neighbor, the lumbersexual if he wanted to come over and watch together, I made a great roast beef dinner and Yorkshire pudding and we had copious amounts of Pinot Noir in celebration.
Yep ...a gay guy and a straight guy? hopefully watching the unfolding of the back to normal , but new and improved United States. I even got a good chuckle when Briden asked "Why is JLo there?" I told him, "My mother told me, if you don't have anything nice to say, come sit by me."
Come on...how do you NOT love Bernie's mailman look?!?!
One on my favorite songs. It was perfect for the day.
