FDR and Truman

I had the BEST visit with my mother.  Trying to fill those awkward silences we have when there is nothing to talk about, I started talking to her about the book I'm reading ("Upstairs at the White House"), telling her that there were things about Truman I never knew (like his being the target of an assassination attempt).  I didn't expect my comments to go anywhere, but she started talking about Truman and Bess Truman and other memories she had of those years and the residents of the White House.

It was like a normal day!  I loved it!
