Wonder if our camera operators will grace us with a view of Air Force One arriving at the airport this morning.

Rethinking matter....LaCrosse might not be big enough for AF1 (a 747) so maybe they'll land in Madison and then chopper over to LaCrosse on Marine One, which for me would be even cooler!!  :) ;) :)

I thought I heard NPR say he'd be speaking in LaCrosse today.  Don't have his itinerary though.  Probably available online.
My Dad's partner's son flew Air Force One and Two when he was in the Air Force, so you're not telling me anything Shep!   8)

Chance is growing right before our eyes.  I wonder if the fact that she is the only one that Zooey and Newman are feeding is the reason for her rapid growth.  She doesn't have to share food with other siblings.  Every night I say a little prayer that she will make it safely till dawn.  The first thing I do in the morning is check that she is OK.

Look at the brown cheeks on Chance's face.  Same color as Zooey's brown feather.  I think Zooey might be reconsidering motherhood after the feeding I watched this morning.  Chance snatched the food delivery from her and then mantled it and wouldn't let her get near it.  She seemed a little frustrated. I want to wish Shep, Nora, Lori and anyone else on this site  a Happy New Year.
