I still can't believe that tomorrow everything in this country will change. This morning, President-Elect Barack Obama drove by our house TWICE on his way to and from Walter Reed Hospital for a surprise visit to injured soldiers. The 1st time, the motorcade surprised us, but the 2nd time I ran out of the house like a crazy woman in my pajamas to wave and jump up and down for the our new President. Neighbors rushed out of their houses, yelling and screaming, some in their bathrobes, so I didn't feel too nuts. It was a thrill of a lifetime to have a President see me in front of my home, with our American Flag flying, and our Obama banners on our porch. We'll see you tomorrow, BHO!!!!!
Here we are, with 300,000 friends at the We Are One concert at the Lincoln Memorial. We were on the left hand side of the Reflecting Pool, about half way up. We had plenty of room to dance and make fools of ourselves. It was a performance that featured star after star, but the biggest applause went for Obama.
Ricardo & Jen, before the concert. Yes, we're happy to be here, at last! Amy & Ricardo before the concert.
