And some glimpses of life in the chamber of the House of Representatives from this past week:
Cinnamon bears sent to me by my seatmates while I was chairing the committee; delivered by a page to me at the rostrum. Nice! My people love me and send me cinnamon bears!
The first car in the lot on Saturday morning, 6:30 a.m. before an 8 o'clock Call to Order in the House of Representatives. I give this work my all.
Oh, the teal suede shoes with copper leather toe band and silver buckles. Loveliness.
