As Mary Tyler Moore would say.....



I was looking through some photos today and remembered when I was teaching in Minneapolis, Minnesota, one of the guild members took me on a great tour of the city. I knew the Mary Tyler Moore statue was erected there and I was going to be cheeky and drape my quilt over her and take a pic. I grew up watching the show and just loved Mary. I loved she had a cool apartment with funny friends and she gave hope to women living on their own and making a living. I always loved the opening of the show when she threw her hat up in the air and the song "We're Gonna Make it After All" would be playing. Just as I was reminiscing, I thought about tomorrow... the day our country will swear in a new President with many hopes and dreams that many, many Americans hold dear within their hearts. Tomorrow is a great day, a day of optimism for a great new future. President- elect Obama, I pray for the courage you have and can only hope that nothing will hold back your visions to make us a whole nation once again. I look forward to this new beginning...because....WE GONNA MAKE IT AFTER ALL !!!

I loved Mary Tyler Moore show also - I did not know there was a statue for her - how cute! Also I agree with all you say about Obama - how wonderful to have a new president that gives us new visions for the future - it will take awhile to straighten out all this mess, hopefully in another year or two things will be looking a lot better.

Another Mary Tyler Moore fan here! When I saw the title of your post, though, the first thing that came to mind though was, "Ohhhh Rob!" - from The Dick Van Dyke Show. Yeah, I'm that old.

And today, Inauguration Day? Oh happy day!!

Hi there Karen,
I didn't know there was a statue either until I mentioned that the MTM show was taken place there and then someone told me about the statue!!!! Cool huh? :-)
