Spring is fading in - less vivid than some years in recent memory, but starting - color in the bare branches - a touch or redbud pink - saw my first purple wysteria today, some trees simply quietly greening up.
Last night was a treat for Joanna and K.K, and for me vicariously. It is fun to help people I love have adventures. My part last night was simply helping the boys with homework and feeding them dinner while their mother and sister took the bus to the University of Texas campus to see Bill Clinton. They had an amazing experience. Probably because K.K. is so cute and because the two of them - young mother and daughter together with their Hillary sign are what the campaign wants and needs - were singled out by the secret service to stand close. They each got two hand shakes from Bill Clinton and an autograph (of Hillary Clinton's autobiography - but the library's copy - which I guess we will buy from the library now.) The secret service guy teased K.K. and apparently literally pinched her cheek - which she isn't sure how she feels about. Joanna was thrilled to get her Bill Clinton handshakes.
