I don't have a bit of experience with affairs of state. I can barely manage the state of my affairs. I was surprised today when one of my customers came in today and told me his daughter (a recent UT graduate, and UT band member) was called to play for Ladybird Johnson's funeral.
"But she's not dead yet, is she?" I asked.
"No, but they expect the funeral to be Friday or Monday."
We pondered that a little. Given the current state of the world, and such, pre-planning is necessary, I suppose, but a little creepy.
In other affairs of my world, IWK started their hurt book sale today. Traffic makes the site C R A W L. It's like watching paint wet.
Wednesday, 11 July Note: SK forwarded an lovely and informative article on the late Ladybird Johnson's life. Ladybird, Ladybird, fly away home.
