I especially love your photos of what I call “talk to the hand:” Dubya sitting there, grinning from ear to ear in whatever office it is in the White House where the visiting dignitary photo ops take place, with his paw stuck out into open space. Some of them have been particularly special as the visitor looks at “the hand” with such distaste. I was glad to see your latest with Kevin Rudd as it had been quite awhile since the last, I think.

Anyway, you are a master of perspective (thinking especially of the several series where Booshy appears to shrink behind the presidential podium)and you have delighted me so very often. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

A devoted fan,
Judi Halford
