Amazing. Just two days to go! I’m watching the Lincoln Memorial concert right now, while also house cleaning and preparing to go shop for party supplies for our major ‘Bush’s Last Day!’ party tomorrow.
There’s a small twinge of regret for having decided not to fight the crowds to participate in any inaugural events up close, but it’s a very small twinge. Last year’s Election was a family affair here at the Casey’s, and it will be great fun taking it all in together, warmer and with a better view on TV.
Count it down… 2!
Five more days, we’re down to one hand!

Just six days to go, you still have time to plan a party. We’ll behaving ours on Monday, to ring out Bush’s last night in office and leave us Inauguration to shake off this eight-year hangover and enjoy the inauguration on TV (which is as close as we’ll be getting). Here’s a fun web site to help you plan your own Bush Bash for next Monday…
One week… sounds like a song.

UPDATE: My blogging daughter noted that her most recent posting was her 100th, so I decided to check the count on my blog, and as it turns out, this is my 500th blog post! Congrats to us!

Eight more days…
OK, it may look like 9 and a half fingers, but it’s meant to be just ‘nine’, as in the number of days left until Bush is gone. The hands in the photo are mine, from a blog post I wrote more than four years ago about the nine trick. Then it was about math, today I’m just plain counting down.
