Thank You!

Holy smokes, what a very lovely thing the post below was to wake up to!

Huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge thank yous to the incredibly awesome UT, who now even speaks Irish, the one-of-a-kind poet that is VC, and the cake-maker supreme Meta – and to you all for the completely beautiful comments that made me go all blushy.

UT is doing today’s R&S while I have a cheesy puff birthday breakfast, but I’ll be in and out all day to make sure you’re behaving. Huh.

Love ya all!!!!

PS Seriously, I can’t believe I’m 21!

A Message from Lisa, Tyren’s Mom

President Barack Obama signs a photograph as he greets people on the tarmac upon arrival at Louis Armstrong International Airport in New Orleans, La., July 25, 2012 (Photo by Pete Souza)

UT included the above photo in today’s R&S – the young man pictured is Tyren Edward Anthony Scott. Tyren’s mother Lisa contacted us at the time to let us know that Tyren was the same young man who asked the President “why do people hate you?’ at a town hall in New Orleans three years earlier:

“He was nine when he asked the President that question and in the latest picture he’s 12. President Obama stood there with us, talked for about three minutes, he remembered Tyren and signed an 11 x 14 picture of their first encounter.”

We sent our best wishes to Tyren, Lisa and all the Scott family this morning, so it was really lovely to receive this comment from Lisa:

Good Afternoon,

Thanks for the great comments on my son Tyren Edward Anthony Scott.

Tyren starts school on Aug. 6. He’s now 13 and in the 8th grade.

Tyren and I are doing great. I visit the website several times a day and was surprised to see Tyren. He’s growing up to be a fine young man. I am not saying that because he is my son, I say that because he has a great heart. He was upset with the verdict in the Zimmerman trial. As a matter of fact after President Obama spoke on Friday he emailed the President on Sunday.

I had to have that talk with him on how to be careful especially as a young black teen.

He’s still very respectful (yes sir/no sir). Tyren is still a good student and he’s involved in the community. He loves people and he does not see color until it slaps him in his face. I had to tell him he is not a thug.

Tyren loves fishing, deer hunting, plays in high school band (sax), football, baseball and he still helps his Uncle Tweed with the chickens LOL.

I tell people all the time you can not raise a child by yourself. So I ask The Obama Diary family to keep us in your prayers.

A Whole Bunch of Thank Yous

****

So, I wake up this morning and there’s a perfect post from Lovely Plains (@DaRiverZkind) ….. and then I come back after a bit and there’s another perfect one from Amk (@amk4obama), despite him being Amk …… and after that Liberal Librarian (@Lib_Librarian) pops up with his usual dollop of brilliance, despite him being a Chelsea supporter.

And then I check my email and there are a bunch more people saying ‘I’m ready to go!’

So, I’m thinking: you people – yes, YOU people! – are ridiculously lovely. And wonderful. And gorgeous. And magnificent. And ….  okay, okay, I’ll stop.

I’m not going to gush here, and publicly embarrass people, and get all mushy about what blissful human beings you are, and….

But you are all BLISSFUL human beings!

Lovely Plains, Amk and Liberal Librarian – thank you so much for today.

****

I’ll be back, in, eh, full swing, on Sunday morning – and the timing has absolutely NOTHING to do with it being St Patrick’s Day and all that tacky, silly, stupid nonsense that you will never, ever, see here

****

(Some day, when I’ve recovered, I will tell you about my ordeal with this song on the 2009 Inauguration Day)

****

Until then, I’ll be asking our awesome noobies to do their very wonderful thing.

Meanwhile…..

Love ya.

Thank you!

Okay, just got back to my email after a few hours and found a bunch of very lovely people willing to help out with the site – I honestly cannot thank you enough. I will get around to replying to everyone and setting something up in the next day or two, we need to get this blog back to work!

Again, thank you to everyone for being so kind, I just needed a bit of a break to rinse the hate out of my hair and recharge!

Love ya all – chat away.

‘You Are The Reason’

Yet another WordPress blogger who is a member of the anti-reblogging campaign – Boycott rebloggers, they create nothing, only steal – thanks! Tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut tut

13 is an unlucky number? Huh! It’s magical: Some of us were born on the 13th :???:

Okay, I’m not going to be sloppy about this ….. promise ….. well ….. ish …. except to say: thank you everyone for taking the blog to another very lovely landmark, 13 million hits, this journey with you all has been pretty damn delightful and amazing. Genuine and endless thanks to you all for keeping me company along the way, and for being forgiving about the occasional meltdown. :oops:

****

I think – hope – you know by now I hate mentioning the money word ….. but if you have a spare $13, it would be completely sweet if you could donate to any of these TOD fundraisers, just to mark the, ah, historic occasion:

a4alice * Alycee * BWD * CollegeKay * Cookemom * DonnaDem4Obama

Hgerhard * HZ * Judith Fardig * Mae Who Love Our CIC

Marlz * Meta * Pamela *prettyfoot58 * proudmemberofglobalzero * Rita * Theo67 * The Obama Diary

****

And if you have anything left over, you could donate to some of the Democratic candidates trying to win back Congress …. which would make PBO’s second term even more perfect:

Like Elizabeth Warren

If there are any other candidates you’d like to promote, please link them in the comments. Thanks.
