So way back when, on January 20th, my neighbor hosted an inauguration party.

And Credit Crunch

… And bowls of “Bailout” (a.k.a., taco soup) served with a ladle

Because any chance I get, I love to make and eat taco soup!
I make an adapted version of the recipe found at

(pic is from there, too, because we ate up our soup before I could take any pictures!)

But we made them watch anyway. History is good for you!

And when it was over, I had a short and lovely walk home.

  11. KC,
    I need you to email me so I Can send you a certain code.

  12. How nice! I wish Hoop and I’d had some people to celebrate with. Instead we were at home, jumping on our couch alone. 🙂

  13. Popped by from Hilary’s to say hi. I love how you captured the day. It was an important milestone in history, and you’ve recorded it beautifully here.

    I can’t help but think that our blogs will someday be incredible lenses into our collective past. Neat.
