Victory Garden

I thought about titling this post “WORDLESS WEDNESDAY”, but I knew there wasn’t a snowball’s chance in hell that Yo Mama could have a wordless day.  So here is YO MAMA’S OBAMA VICTORY GARDEN 2009.

Let us not kid ourselves: the key word in my garden’s name is VICTORY.  The work to have it materialize was arduous: three weeks of visiting nurseries, loading, hauling, planting and cleaning up.  But this year, though it seems my garden gets tougher to complete as each year I get older, it was especially meaningful.  The beautiful result of my labors are way up there with the elation I felt on election night and Inauguration Day.  Ah yes —– every morning when I awake I am at peace (as much as my personality will allow serenity to surface) knowing that President Obama is at the helm of our country.  Sweet victory: I do not apologize for my lack of modesty regarding Obama’s election.  We needed him in our lives, just as we need places of refuge.  Here is my VICTORY GARDEN, my haven:

May safety follow President Obama in Egypt and the mideast.  His homecoming can not be soon enough.

Peace, baby!
