laura bush

When in NYC is is always fun to count your "celeb sightings'. This time, by far, our best sighting was Laura Bush. We had arrived at the last minute to Memphis the Musical and were sent to an alternate door.


Just after taking our seats Laura was escorted in along with both of her daughters and her son-in-law. They sat 4 rows in front of us. I can't begin to tell you how beautiful she is, a picture of gracefulness.

She was in town to join Michelle Obama in Shanksville, PA to mark the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

Laura Bush: “This peaceful place was not chosen by the terrorists. They had other targets for their violence and hate. This site was chosen by the passengers of Flight 93, who spared our country from even greater heartache.”

How very fun! The only celeb I saw while in New York 19 years ago was someone who looked like Barry Manalow walking his dog!

How exciting for you! I've always thought it would be so awesome to be thought of as graceful, like Laura Bush. I'm usually thought of as enthusiastic and someone with a hearty laugh! Oh, well!

Beautiful lady. I miss her. Several years ago, I had a close encounter with her father-in-law, former president, George H. W. Bush. I must blog about that one of these days.

How fortunate you are to see this beautiful, gracious lady in person. I admire her and her family so much. Thank you for sharing this special experience.

I think both Mrs. Bush's are awesome.
But you got to see her in the flesh, wow!
On another note, I saw Memphis when it came to Seattle. The energy, colors, singing, everything, was great!

That is really neat. Could you enjoy the show, knowing she/they were sitting there in front of you??
