Well, it was a fun and patriotic morning. C picked me up at 6:10. Bitter, bitter cold out (maybe in the teens). By the time we met up with P & J and got to the university’s student union building (about 6:40), there was a huge line already outside the Jordan Ballroom. Two of us went down to Moxie Java on the lower level of the SUB (a Milky Way, a Latte, a coffee with cream, and for me, a skinny Chi Tea).
The doors to the ballroom opened at 7:00 a.m. We got pretty good seats since we’d come so early. Sean Hannity was late arriving. I think it finally started at 8:30 a.m. Governor Kempthorne did a great introduction. (He was a terrific Boise mayor, a terrific Idaho senator, and now a great governor.)
Sean was funny and earnest and smart. He got lots of cheers and applause throughout. Also getting a standing ovation were the military men in the audience, including two marines in uniform. I bought a book and joined the crowd pressing in for an autograph at the end. That is very unlike me, but hey, I got up early to see him. I might as well get his signature.
I got home about 10:40. Now, two hours later, I’m till trying to kick start my day, but the old engine is sputtering, not firing on all engines. I may have to take a nap and then start over again. 😉
