Historic day

It was bound to happen sooner or later.

But it's so much earlier than I ever thought possible.

Today they'll be swearing in a President who's...

younger than me!

Update:

I love Google Trends.

How else could I have known, that on Inauguration day, there were only two other pressing issues on America's mind...



... a good snow cream recipe, and free makeup.

Yep, he's younger than I am as well. How'd that happen??

Pablo said...

I understand he's younger than the Florida Cracker too (who has a birthday this Friday if I recollect correctly).

Rurality said...

Swampy, I have no idea! I am also wondering where all this extra weight and gray hairs came from. I think I hear my bones creaking...

Pablo, you must be one of those young'uns I keep hearing about. (When I can remember to use my ear horn.)

KFarmer said...

I'm not sure one way or the other. I can't remember how old I am... ;)

Gail said...

robin andrea said...

Yep, he's younger than I am too.

Wow. That's a perspective I hadn't considered yet. Another milestone on life's road? (I had to look up his actual birthday, and I'm older . . . barely. I'm pretty sure I have more gray hair though.

Snicker, snicker, some revelation when I reveal my age annonymously . . . it was a Blogger goof. Really! It was!

Rurality said...

KF, I have that problem too sometimes!

Gail, thanks!

RA, glad I'm not the only old gal around. :)

LauraP, must be that age thing. :)

Tee-hee, I noticed our "local" TV station amongst the trends. Probably there because ALL the weather folks flubbed the forecast for today. We were supposed to get 4 to 6 inches of snow, we got nuttin, nuttin at all!

The Country Experience said...

The people who have been searching on google more recently have been stickly mainly to a inaugeration-related theme. Snow cone recipes and free make-up have been relegated to much further down the list now.

Rurality said...

Swampy, I saw that but thought they might just have a really good inauguration feed or somthing. :) Sorry you didn't get your snow!

TCE, it turns out the free makeup thing was due to a class-action lawsuit against department stores who had been fixing the prices of makeup. So they have to give away a bunch for free.

As for snow cream recipes, well who can resist that? If it would ever snow here, I'd make some.

Susan Gets Native said...

Well, free makeup IS important.
:)

I thought all the YouTube videos and texting and emails would break the Internets today.
But things seem to be running smoo.............................

Rurality said...

Susan, heh! Well my internets are ok but I haven't been able to send email for several days. I feel very inhibited!

Walter Jeffries said...

It's probably just a mistake on the birth certificate... :)

Ericka said...

lisa said...

Well, ahem, our President IS older than ME (by a stinkin' year! :) Now I'm going to look up that snow cream recipe...
