He seems to be doing pretty well, LH. He just bought a new house and was a bit frazzled from picking out the carpeting for it just before he sold us the trailer. He's a busy guy. He says he sells quite a lot of trailers and motor homes, and they're making him the manager of one of the new showrooms for the RV place where he works.
Some other presidential (or quasi-presidential) news... as we were on our way to the RV place yesterday afternoon to have the trailer hitch put on our van, we saw something that looked really weird. There were what looked like hundreds of police officers hanging around the parking lot of one of the buildings about a block from our hotel. And there were dozens of police motorcycles all lined up in the parking lot, and police cars all over the place. Some of them were parked around the perimeter of the parking area, and one of them was parked up in the grass on a hill, between a couple of trees. At first I thought it was a speed trap and I laughed about what a funny place it was to put a speed trap. And I was hearing military helicopters all day long yesterday.
JtS just called a few minutes ago. He said all that hullabaloo was a $400 a plate dinner (campaign fundraiser) old GWB was having there in that building. I think they had the entire Detroit/Dearborn area police departments there in that parking lot. I bet nobody brought any of that $400 a plate food out to them.
