Hey! I know that lady!

I was outside the temple on Thursday, and a familiar face came walking out from the distribution center downstairs. It was none other than Ann Romney! I never recognize famous people so was quite proud of myself for knowing her. I told her I wished that her husband was still running for president and she said, "Everybody does!" and I told her that I thought he was great and that I did vote for him. (Duh, so did a lot of other people. Vote for him, that is. Was that the best I could do?) Anyway she was very pleasant and didn't act a bit disturbed that some stalker lady spoke to her.I will say this. She is even more beautiful in person. She is a beautiful woman as you can tell by her pictures, but seeing her in person, well she is just gorgeous.
The last time I saw a Romney at the temple, we were standing in line on a Sunday at 6am to go to the first dedicatory session (in 2000?) and this guy behind us had to be someone important because every network and local news person was interviewing him, asking him what he thought about this new temple. I asked Larry who the important guy is behind us and he said "Beats me". Well, later I am reading about the Olympics, Massachusetts Politics etc and lo and behold - the famous guy was Mitt Romney!Shoot, I wish I had told Ann that I love her meatloaf recipe! It is a very sweet meatloaf and I love sweet meatloaf.

I saw Elizabeth Edwards at the swimming pool in Chapel Hill over the summer. It took me awhile to figure it out, but eventually I did.

How cool that you met Anne. We wish her husband were still running for president too. We're still in mourning.
