Who looks the part?

Is there any question of who looks more presidential? An elegant man who refuses to get pulled down into the muck? Or a pathetic man grasping at anything to get attention?

Obama Roasts McCain

A couple of nights ago John McCain and Barack Obama made speeches at the Alfred E. Smith dinner. It's a Catholic charity that has always brought in presidential candidates and other high-powered politicians. Alfred E. Smith was mayor of NYC and the first Catholic to run for president. So every 4 years they have the presidential hopefuls make speeches, and they are required to be funny and roast one another.

Here's Obama's speech.

Bearded Ladies

When we got back from visiting my father in France (photos to come), the girls were 2 weeks older. They weren't appreciably bigger, however two of them grew beards. I think these ladies might be of Eastern European descent with all that facial hair! But, in their case it looks awfully cute.

This is Edie.

Here they all are in their coop.

Lou Lou and Edie on top of their coop run.

We didn't get a photo of Andie that really shows off her nutty hair doo, but I think you get the idea.
