This was a big week for presidential library geeks – uh, people like me who collect mugs from each library. Yep, there are people who do that. Thursday marked the dedication of the George W. Bush Presidential Library in Dallas, Texas. A few years ago, when the library was still a warehouse in an industrial park, I was offered a job there. I turned it down, opting for a life of Maryland blue crabs and snow balls instead of big hair, even bigger boots, and Friday night lights in Texas. It was a tough decision only in that I knew my chances of meeting a cowboy would pretty much go out the barn door. Ho-hum. But don’t cry for me Texas – my life turned out pretty well.
Since it was such a momentous week, I knew I had to feature a photo that paid homage to the occasion.
Get ready for pictures of baby Republicans!
Since I equate Texas with cowboys, here are a couple of photos of our very own cowboys!

Howdy, partner! That's what we call an urban cowboy 'round these parts!
Yeah...I'm stretching things a little aren't I?
Sorry for the quiet week! Lots going on! But keep checking in! It's May soon!
