I spoke at 3 fundraising banquets in MI, NC, and WI, squeezed in a stop in DC to see Daena, attend a meeting, and support pro-life stalwart Congressman Chris Smith at a fundraiser, and ended with 2-1/2 days covering the Notre Dame/Obama spectacle in South Bend.
I had wonderful times but am glad to be home! I missed Rich, my boys (well, they're 26- and 32-year-old "boys"), and my grandsons, all of whom I hope to see over the Memorial Day weekend.
One highlight of the trip was seeing moderator and friend Carla! She and a friend travelled some distance to attend a WI Right to Life fundraiser in Eau Claire.
I so appreciate Kelli and the Mod Squad for keeping this operation running smoothly while I was so often in- and out-of-pocket!
Great picture!! i'm so glad you got to meet again! :)Posted by: Bethany at May 19, 2009 9:46 AM
Great pic. Thanks for the courage and effort. It seems the polls are measuring a shift toward pro life in America. This ND incident was the kind of exposure obama wanted to avoid. Now he finally wants dialogue because he is lost in favor.
Obama says he wants to reduce abortion and people with minds know he is throwing borrowed money at supporting abortion.
Holy Cow !!! The women on this blog get more gorgeous with each new photo !
Beautiful women doing beautiful work.
First it was Jill, then Bethany, and now Carla !
Hubba Hubba !!! LOL
I certainly hope the two of you had more time together and chat.Posted by: carder at May 19, 2009 12:20 PM
Yes, we discussed an annual Mod Squad meeting in Hawaii right, Jill? :)Posted by: Carla at May 19, 2009 12:36 PM
Who's buying the plane tickets? :D Couldn't we choose someplace less...volcanic? lolPosted by: Kel at May 19, 2009 12:40 PM
I agree with xppc, and believe the momentum is definitely on the pro life side.
It was interesting and encouraging to read the TIME magazine article on abortion which said that young women are more likely to be pro life than their mothers or that generation. The article suggested one reason why could be better ultrasound and women seeing images of their babies very early in the pregnancies.Posted by: Joanne at May 19, 2009 12:52 PM
Hey hey hey!! I thought we all agreed on somewhere in New England, preferably New Hampshire, preferably the west side, right on the Vermont border and 3/4 of the way down south...Posted by: Bobby Bambino at May 19, 2009 12:57 PM
Camp out at Bobby's! I want to hold the newbie!Posted by: Carla at May 19, 2009 1:01 PM
Hey, Jill. I heard you as I listened to Dennis Miller's radio program last night. I love how you came on and said, "My last name's Stanek." Right to the point, like "Stanek's the name; howdoyado?"Posted by: bmmg39 at May 19, 2009 2:24 PM
