We all have talked about how much we love Governor Sarah Palin, but how many of us really saw her in person?You might have heard about the event, but yesterday I took the opportunity to go see her.

I open the paper that morning thinking I was just going to take it easy. I was just going to watch the game (btw, did the Buccs win??) and hang out at home. There on the font page was a small article saying Gov. Sarah Palin was going to be speaking at the The Villages. I turn to my grandmother and said something to the effect that I’d kill to go see her in person. She turns to me and says that it is just up the street (about 20min drive) and if I really want to go, I should just go.

Looking on-line where this event was taking place, I agreed that I should go and left. Like an idiot that I am, I left without sunscreen and a fold-up chair. I am happy to report that the sun burn isn’t that bad and I have great comfortable shoes. Towards the end of the event, I did get a little dehydrated. However that is why invented Gatorade, no?

The first to speak at this event was Jim Greer, chairman of Republican Party of Florida. He was cool, but lost his vioce towards the end of his speech. His wife was standing by with some water. Greer quip that “a woman always knows exactly what to do,” which drew a the loudest response during his speech.

Next up was Bill McCollum, Florida’s Attorney General. McCollum really got the crowd ready for the Alaskan Governor. I didn’t get pictures of either of these guys, because my camera’s battery was low and I didn’t want to miss Governor Palin.

Now it was Sarah Palin’s turn. Once up on stage, she thanked us for the warm welcome. Gov Palin also thanked us for a helping fulfill a family dream of going to Disney World. Even Piper, Palin’s youngest daughter, got to thank the crowd for being able to go.

There is something to be said about going to these events instead of just watching them on your computer. Get out there and enjoy life.
