GIFT FOR A QUEEN OR A PRESIDENT

Well, the recent protocol error made by our beloved President made me think we have a bunch of unsophisticated, fraternity boys running the White House-and maybe this is too nice of description. What could the Queen possibly be thinking? Did that protocol manual get "redistributed" to the trash!

Amusement and a challenge for you:

On one of my husband's business trips to Ghana, we were invited to a State Dinner by the President of Ghana. Ghana wanted Kmart's textile business, so we were being entertain like celebrities and royalty. Since we were invited to a State Dinner at President's home, I need to bring him a gift--just as Obama gave a gift to the Queen. My limitation was that it had to be from Kmart (my own personal limitation, but it seemed only appropriate). Of course, I was purchasing this gift on the way to the airport and had given my purchase little advance thought.

What do you think I purchased for the President of Ghana? The President presented us with his family Kente cloth which was incredible-and I still do not know what to do with it. What gift could I have purhcased that would be equal to this? The gift also needed to fit it in my suit case so lawn mowers or Christmas trees were not possible.

Find out what I purchased tomorrow.

I am stunned at their stupidity with these chosen gifts. I mean do they think they are clever. Good grief why doesn't someone say something. Oh, but I forgot, he wouldn't listen anyway. Now, stopping my rant! I can't wait to hear what you bought!! Love your stories!! xoxo
