Remembering Lady Bird Johnson

Lady Bird Johnson's name will forever be linked with wildflowers. The former first lady, who died Wednesday at her home in Westlake Hills near Austin, Texas, shared her love of nature with Texas and the nation. She was 94.

And though nationally, she was best known as the wife of Lyndon B. Johnson, the 36th president, Mrs. Johnson was very much a figure in her own right. She mixed Southern graciousness with a quiet, cast-iron fortitude that not only won admirers but allowed her to steer a large business enterprise and help forge a national environmental movement.

Back to the Daily Grind

Why is it that you look forward to your vacations then in a blink of an eye it is all over? I have to mention that I loved my time away from the States and now that it is over, I long to explore those parts of the world that are waiting for me. They wait for the weary traveller...the ones that will save money all year long, prep their suitcases for the inevitable trip and become teary eyed when all they have are memories left on film.

$25,000 is all I need.
Debt free and left to use my money for living my daily average life and go on amazing trips with the money I earn day to day.

House on the lake?
Trip to Australia?
Lounging on the beach?
What do I want when I grow old and where do I want to go in the world?

Not to much to ask.

Today I know. Justin and I are going to see the new Harry Potter flick -->Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. We have waited for such a long time for this movie and now it is here. After a marathon of movies this weekend, we are prepared for the next installment. Then later, taking my already purchased ticket, to pick up my final Harry Potter book. :)
I am a HP Fan..I admit it.
