Day 6 - January 21, 2009

Everyone’s packing, so of course we (me, Deb, & Lovette) go to the maul, er mall. There’s fresh coffee and last minute bargains to be had. When we get back we say our good-byes to the Crables and hit the road.

Still amazed at what we saw and experienced, the ride back was different than the ride there. No games, no satellite radio. Adrienne is driving. and as it turns out she knows the route well and had worked as a school bus driver, so she is handling it!

We make it back to Chicago 2 hours faster than we had going. (Thanx A) Along the way we drop everybody off with their bag of dreams.

Its Obamaworld now. I’m glad we went & we were lucky to get as close as we did without tickets—we were actually closer than many people with tickets.

Oh yeah, that’s the other thing—TICKETS….

After we got back I checked my work email and on the day we left I got a notification from Rahm Emmanuels office:
Thank you for contacting the Office of the Fifth Congressional District of Illinois regarding tickets to the 2009 Presidential Inauguration. We are pleased to be able to provide tickets for you and one guest (2 tickets total).
He had 2 tickets to the Inauguration for me:-O Pretty funny, but oh well…
But let me say once again for the record:
I LOVE RAHM EMMANUEL! If he were a hat, I’d wear him;)
