The ride was right out of Amarillo....less than 2 hours from us.
How I would have loved just to MEET this amazing man.
THE BUSH CENTER WARRIOR 100K RIDEFormer President George W. Bush brought the three-day, 100-kilometer ride to Palo Duro Canyon State Park Thursday through Saturday.
The ride was designed to draw attention to the service and sacrifice of military men and women wounded in the war on terrorism,It was about a wartime president who had to make difficult decisions that would forever alter men and women and their families, and it was his way to express gratitude for their service and patriotism.
Four lost legs, including Marine Sgt. Maj. Chris Self from Larksville, Tenn., who was the last in the receiving line.
“You’re looking good. You’re looking fit,” Bush said.
“So are you, sir,” Self said. “I hope I’m as fit as you are.”
“Oh, you are,” Bush said..... “I can tell. You are.”
HOLY COW....this hunk of a man is 65 years old........and LOOKIN' GOOOOD
Don't you know LAURA'S heart skips a beat every time she looks at him?
He is more beautiful on the inside than the out.
He is truly a good, Christian man that loves his country and HE LOVES US.
I am not saying he was the BEST PRESIDENT WE EVER HAD...he made mistakes, just like all those before him and GOD KNOWS like the one following.
What I AM saying is that he had our best interest at heart, he is a good man, thru and thru and I like him VERY much.
I am aware of his popularity decline through his terms. He had a lot....A LOT....of hard decisions to make and he did the very best he knew how to do.
I am also saying that I have DEEP respect for him....a respect that I've not felt for a president before or after.
I wish him and his adorable wife, Laura, all the very best...
and I sure am sorry that he was sooo close and I wasn't able to meet him...........maybe NEXT time. *sighing
If you saw the presentation of his and Laura's portraits unveiled at the WHITE HOUSE last week, you probably LOVED how he stole the show with his amazing humor.
