    Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.

    Wife of Displaced Texan

    MaTH, were you planning to let your daughters know when you'd be in town? I think Dianne Isabell would say that some notice is good etiquette!


    Dear 'Wife of Displaced Texan" :-)
    Thank heavens he has "MC" because without her we wouldn't have a clue. Now "MC" just sends me an email that says, 'INCOMING'. Maybe you guys need the same thing!!

    Susan and I recently watched some episodes on PBS about the English Monarchy. I am amazed at the etiquette preparation done for the receiving lines at Buckingham Palace. When major award ceremonies (and knight-ings) occur, staff literally walks the participants through in a practice and coaches the participants on how to address the Queen, properly bow and curtsy, and what the appropriate etiquette is for the occasion.

    Seems like lots of extra work, especially in modern times.

    The most humorous clip we saw was the on the episode that featured the Queen at a state visit at the White House. The Queen and Bush 43 are walking down flight of stairs and she stops halfway down to greet someone and the President just keeps walking down to the bottom. He then realizes he's left her halfway up and then does an almost "rewind", walking backwards up the stairs to rejoin her, all in the middle of an obvious glance at this staff (caught on camera) that he knew he had just pulled the gaffe.


    Wife...I just received notice that he's NOT coming to DC. The things I learn at lunch! I hadn't booked his flight yet so I didn't have the information to send.


    Does Dianne Isbelle know this?(My mother weaned me on Emily Post.)
    When regreting to a formal invitation, one does not give a reason unless the invitation is from The White House.
