I had a busy weekend, which included attending
the Franken Victory party Saturday night.
Standing in the middle of a mob of people,
staring at backs (I'm 5 feet tall) reminded me of why I quit going to these
But I had to go to this one, and I did get to see many happy faces from the campaign.
Al was great, humble, giving us all the credit for his win,
then promising us he will work every minute for Minnesota and make us proud.
I have no doubt he is going to surprise a lot of people.
Al is not the flighty raunchy,comedian the Republicans would want you to believe.
He grew up in St.Louis Park a suburb of Minneapolis.
His mother was a Homemaker and real estate agent and his father
was a printing salesman.
They made sure he had the best education and he graduated from the prestigious Blake
Academy in 1969, he was a serious student with a sense of humor.
He attended Harvard and graduated cum laud in 1973 with a
bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science.
His interest in Politics was not something that just developed.
He has been well prepared for this new career and he will make Minnesota proud.
Sunday was another long day it involved a wedding Anniversary party in our home town and a friends daughters Graduation on our way home.
Saw many good friends and relived many good memories.
Now back to the old grind, some jobs are never done
and my sneezing today reminds me I have to get out the dust cloth.
