Thank You, Rosie.

Rosie O’Donnell

It has been officially announced that Rosie O’Donnell will not be returning to “The View”, opting out of her contract three weeks early. Actually she asked for a leave of absence or something.

“The View” website says “Tune in on Monday, May 28 for Rosie’s last day with The View.”

I know there are many people out there that do not agree with Rosie’s point of view. In fact, there are a lot of people out there that fire off nasty messages on her website while hiding under a presumbed shroud of anonymity.

Whether you agree with Rosie or not (and I do 99% of the time), you have to admit that Rosie contributed to the American experience by getting people talking. Rosie’s outspokenness made people sit up, listen and think. It prompted many to speak out. And in these turmulous times, it’s important that each of us takes a moment to think about what’s going on in our country and the world. It’s o.k. to ask questions, even if your answer or opinion is different from those around you.

I’d like to thank Rosie for helping others find their voice and prompting them to look at the issues and views and forming their opinion. Best of luck to you and your family.

You rock, Ro.

Across The River.

En route to NY.

Earl and I are situated in our hotel room in stunning Secaucus, New Jersey. We are staying at an Embassy Suites that is currently under reconstruction, so we were able to stay for two nights for the price of one.

I am so excited about this weekend in The Big Apple. We just ate supper at a nearby restaurant called Cheesburger in Paradise. We’re now getting ready to drive into town so that we can stalk other bloggers at Therapy.

Good times.

The lilacs are in full bloom. It’s currently 92 degrees.

What a perfect way to kick off the Memorial Day weekend.
