Enjoyable Event!


You might recognize my close friend David in the photo above posing with Gabby Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly.  David is working for the Fred DuVal for Governor campaign and he's been hard at work planning fund raising events so that people can meet and get to know the candidate.  Tuesday evening was a special event with Gabby and Mark there to support their long-time friend Mr. DuVal and say a few words on his behalf.  The event was at the home of friends who provided a warm welcome to go along with the truly delicious refreshments.

The evening was the most enjoyable political event I think I've ever attended and I've attended a lot of them.

She's a strong lady.

Very cool! It's so nice to see Ms. Giffords looking good! My best wishes to Mr. DuVal, too! A lovely portrait of the trio.

P.S. I laughed out loud at your comment on Ocala. In our neighborhood, it seems some garages are almost empty, others are crammed floor to ceiling with junk so all cars are parked outside!

How cool is that!

Sounds like an interesting event! Ms. Giffords is definitely a heroic figure. I admire her for getting out there and supporting her friends and staying active.

It'd be an honour to meet Ms. Giffords and Mr. Kelly.

I didn't really know who Gabby Giffords was Sharon, but thanks to google I do now. What a very brave and determined lady.. sounds like she was one of the 'good politicians' let's face it there aren't too many of them.

I didn't recognize Gabby Giffords but I remember her awful shooting story very well. I'm happy for her.
