Up early for an historic moment

How exciting it is to wake up in the wee hours of the morning to turn on the television and watch the inauguration of the forty fourth President of the United States.

I am amazed at the huge crowd that has turned up for the occasion. You see them all rugged up, beanies, gloves, scarves. Here I am in a singlet and boxer shorts! I looked up the temperature there - -3°C (27°F). I simply could not imagine standing still outside, waiting and watching. Those people are so dedicated!

Now the decision has to be made - stay up watching or go back to bed. I had such a difficult time falling asleep last night. Perhaps I'll just nap on the couch in front of the tv!

Happy inauguration!
