The Last Ride

There are some wonderful behind-the-scenes photos and stories available regarding President and Mrs. Bush's ride home yesterday on Air Force One. (Click title of post.)

I also enjoyed an oral history regarding the final flights of various Presidents.

(Hat tip: Holy Coast.)

The Bushes enjoyed a celebratory "welcome home" concert in Texas featuring my favorite country singers, Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers.

As always, President and Mrs. Bush were graciousness personified throughout the transition and on Inauguration Day. What a shame that so many of the new President's fans didn't conduct themselves with the same class.

Thanks for the mention. The Gatlins are favorites of mine as well. I did a show with them back in 1989 in Dallas and they're as nice offstage as they seem to be onstage.

Thanks for sharing that, Rick, it's nice to hear. I have been very impressed with how the Gatlins went way beyond the extra mile to greet their fans after concerts I've seen in Cerritos and Costa Mesa in the last few years. They came out to the lobby after both concerts and signed photos & CDs and posed for pictures until every fan had had a moment with them.

Best wishes,

I was really happy to see President and Mrs. Bush once again amongst friends and people who obviously care about them. They were always classy, down to earth, without heirs and will be missed.
