Bill Was In Town.....

This morning I was reading the newspaper (online) and read that Bill Clinton was going to be at UMW (University of Mary Washington). Since I don't live that far from there, and since my husband Gary works there, I thought what the heck! I'll go and see if I can catch a glimpse of him.

I got on the phone and called Gary to see if he thought I could park at his jobsite, and if so, would I have a better advantage to actually see Bill Clinton, and he said YES!!! And so I was off. On my way though I stopped and picked up some lunch for Gary.

When I got there, he jumped in the car and sat with Hannah so he could eat his lunch, and I took off and went for a walk. This is what is was able to get from a far....

I would have had a better shot if the guy beside me wouldn't have hit my arm. He was doing the same thing I was of course - trying to get a picture. The only difference was that he didn't have a flip-screen on his camera like I did so that he could hold the camera above his head and still see what he was taking a picture of.

If you want to read about it you can go to here. They have more pictures and a video of his visit.

It's kind of funny that I had the opportunity to do this today because yesterday BS called me and said "Guess who I got a phone call from today??"

I said "Who??"

And she said "BILL CLINTON!!"

So I called her today and said "You got a phone call, and I got a picture!!"

He was here too at a local high school but I had to work. I watched live video of his speech but it just wasn't the same.

Then I went home and my husband told me HE got a call from Bill Clinton.

Not only did I get a call from Bill - I got one from Hillary AND one from John McCain (and John Warner for McCain)AND one from Huckabee BUT none from Obama !! You can tell that it's voting day in VA tomorrow !!
