FAMILY ALBUM 2–STEVEN KLOTZBACK, BARACK OBAMA & CORONADO BEACH

Mr. President

Mr. President

Saturday started at 3:45am when we started emerging from our bedrooms, sleepy-eyed, reaching desperately for a first sip of coffee, putting on our good Obama-speech clothes and piling into the rental van for the hour or two from San Diego to Anaheim’s Angel Stadium where the Big Event would happen.

It goes like this: Hours in the sun waiting for THE SPEECH. THE SPEECH. Which was … was … well … awesome. The Pres was eloquent, funny, and clear about what he believes and what needs to be done. He was also pretty clear about the intellectual capacities and moral fiber — or lack thereof — of the climate change deniers. Easily worth my sunburned scalp and a few hours of lost sleep.

Then University officials read the formal statement conferring the degrees and Steven became a college graduate. I had no idea UC Irvine had moved up in the University of California system to be part of that top tier along with UC Berkeley, UCLA, etc. So anyway I AM PROUD.

Then back in San Diego and a few of us take the Albuquerque girls for a beach walk

  1. I am happy for you and your Grandson. Lucky you got to see and hear the president. And not in Washington, D.C. where it is hot and humid
