Clueless

I went to the library yesterday afternoon to find some books on Abe Lincoln and George Washington for my home school Co-op. As I approached Main Street, I noticed quite a heavy bit of traffic for this time of day. Actually in Victoria, you rarely see much traffic downtown. As I pulled into the parking lot, I could barely find a parking spot. I noticed lots of cars in the area around the Square. I started seeing emergency vehicles, lots of police men and then I noticed some swat team people walking around with guns. Okay, I'm getting a little freaked out, but I was alone without the kids and very curious. I walked in the library and everyone seemed very calm. Maybe they weren't aware of what was going on just 50 yards away. Finding the nearest librarian, I asked, "Do you have any idea what is going on outside?" She was a young girl probably just out of high school, and she looked at me as if to say, "Duh!" Apparently Bill Clinton was in town rallying for his wife, and I was the only one in our city of 60,000 that didn't know it. Here are some clips of his visit. And no, I didn't go watch him. Sorry, if Hillary is your gal. I did think it was pretty funny that I was researching presidential stuff and a former president was right outside the building.

I saw that on the news last night. I thought of you. That is to funny. That would happen to me as well. Totally clueless. Heck, I had no idea that Sentor Kennedy was here yesterday and Obmama is arriving today. They are going to close the airport for a few hours because of that. OY!!!!! This stuff is so out there. Now if they bring in some We actually care about I might jump up for JOY!!
I'm clueless right with you, girl!

I am going to refrain from any over political comments....
Hillary was here last week, Obama was here yesterday and Huckabee is here today. And here I sit. Oh well...

How funny is THAT? Talk about your up close and personal research opportunity. Not that you went there...I wouldn't have, either.

Glad that's ALL it was, cuz at first I thought there was a robbery or something awful.
