The only people at the polo club are Daren and his wife, Tammy, Dana, me, secret service, the pilots, two key staff members, a camera man, a representative from the company of the helicopter and the presidents. Oh yeah, and the former Secretary of State, James Baker. It was quite the cast! It was also a very small crowd. We were incredibly lucky to even meet these men, but to be the only other people there was amazing! They were headed to Galveston to see all the devastation caused by Hurricane Ike. They have set up the Bush-Clinton Coastal Recovery Fund to help the Texas and Lousiania coast lines recover from these hurricanes.
Poppa Bush is so cute! And very old. He arrived first and was very nice. He walked over to Dana, Tammy, and I and greeted us. He was very nice. Clinton was the last to arrive and he came over to us and shook our hands and made small talk just like Poppa Bush. Clinton is much skinnier in person than he looks. He kind of reminded me of a mix between Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley. After we took the picture that is above this paragraph, he patted me on the back and said bless you. How many people can say that they have met two former presidents?? And a former Secretary of State?? It was quite a morning.
Needless to say I had a great time in Houston! Although, nothing beats coming home!
