Friday Linkups: The First Family Detail
It's Friday linkup time! I'm linking up with the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer, Book Beginnings of Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader, and the Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice.
This Week's Book Blogger Hop Question:
Do your children, siblings, or other family members enjoy reading as much as you do?
Yes and no. Emma (19) and Eleanor (20) both enjoy reading but don't read all that much right now as they're busy with school and everything. Paul (18) is not a reader and we tease him a lot that books won't actually hurt him. I think he might find he enjoys reading when he's a bit older or he may not. The Tornado (6) is learning to read and is really excited about it. He's always loved books and we've read a story pretty much every night so he's thrilled that he can now sound out most of the words in the books.
The nuclear football is a leather-covered titanium business case that weights forty pounds.
I can't imagine carrying that around all the time. Not only is it heavy but there's so much responsibility!
John Hinckley is still considered a Class III threat. In 1982, he was found not guilty by reason of insanity in the shootings of President Reagan and three others who were with him.
I suppose if anything should get you listed as a Class III threat actually shooting a president would do it. I think hearing about how the Secret Service deals with this kind of threat will be interesting.
So what do you think? Keep reading?
