    The local columnist for the Palm Beach Post was onboard the Wonder last week. His write-up about the cruise appears here:

    Glad to know that people left them alone to enjoy their Disney vacation. Can't imagine what it would be like to be constantly hounded for an autograph or photo opportunity.

    Man! I am so glad that I wasn't on that cruise. I would be so torn.

    I am a big First Lady fan. I think I have every book on every First Lady that has beed written, and Barbara Bush is one of my favorites. I would SOOOOO want to walk up and say hello and maybe get an autograph, but since it is their vacation, I wouldn't have. It would have been hard though!

    I actually met Barbara Bush once while they were in the White House. My HandBell Choir played there during the Christmas season and they had a little juice and cookie spread for us. She actually came down and said hello and served punch. Very classy lady.

    Mrs. Bush will write you a personal note if you write her. After 9/11, I sent notes to both she and Mrs. Laura Bush and received very nice letters back from both of them. She gave a very moving talk at Grissom AFB when her husband was still President; she was very gracious afterward to everyone, especially the children.
