… is my kind of town! Could not resist the tourist kitsch and fun of the #christkindlmarkt in Chicago and bought this fab ornament in honor of His Grace’s favorite city and happy to be here as the #talkinbig book tour continues!
I can… I swear…
Well done, sir; well done this beautiful loving family; and well done the honor guard and 3d Infantry. You make us all proud. Blessings.
So proud of His Grace and the turnout last night fir the NY launch of Talkin’ Big Our friends the Landrigans graciously hosted @verdurajewelry and it seemed only fitting that the author wear a piece or two of their signature elegance.

Keeping it simple this year as am only in NYC a few days but cannot keep myself from decorating. A great and easy solution is always to do lots of one thing. Between the fragrant garland and sweet scent of narcissus our new NY pad still looks like the living room of “Sanford and Son” but it sure smells good. .

The ever festive New York classic, Christmas lunch at Doubles. They do a beautiful job year after year, and such a fun, lively, well-dressed(!), and talkative (shoutative?) crowd that one’s ears ring for hours afterward. #andithoughtitwassleighbells
After the 1941 attacks on Pearl Harbor, George H.W. Bush enlisted at age 18 to become then the youngest US Naval aviator in history. Whatever your politics, this was a brave and good man, a devoted public servant, husband, father, and an honorable president. Well done and rest in peace Mr. President. I am privileged to have met you and to know your wonderful family. Photo AFP/Getty via @guardian_us @theguardian @maggieacts @bigmarvino #georgehwbush #41 #presidentbush #presidentbush41
The Dome on the Rock and the Western (Wailing) Wall, Fascinating that the King of Jordan financed with personal funds the layering of the dome with real gold, which eased the way toward peace with Jordan. Swiping left, the continued view, somewhat moodier, with the mosque tower. It’s all a very long and complex story…
