This picture was sent to me quite a few months ago and I’m just getting it up. This was taken by a friend’s daughter; Sally who has a great blog here. Sally and her mom Jane had attended this campaign rally in Concord, NH.
You’ll have to click on the photo to get the full effect.
In the center of the picture is President Obama. Just over to the left, you’ll see a windswept person in the press bleachers focusing behind what looks like a bit of Albert Einstein’s hair. Now do you see it? That’s me with Fatti Madi. I brought that bird with me all over New Hampshire in order to get photos.
Here’s another photo with me peeking under Obama’s arm.
And here’s another view from that same event, from my point of view.
Here’s a close up of Fatti Madi, just so you’ll know her when you see her again (which you will.)
During the political campaign season I was able to get Madi’s picture taken with Bill Clinton, NH Gov. Maggie Hassan, Joe Biden, Caroline Kennedy (yup), Kelly Ayotte, Bobby Jindal, and John Sununu.
It became a quest to try and snag these photos and I’m afraid that I made a bit of a name for myself in the press section. Some of the reporters were a little more tolerant than others (seriously, a chicken?) But then there were the really good guys, one AP reporter in particular kept an eye out for me and looked forward to holding the chicken so that I could snap a few pictures.
As we live in New Hampshire, it won’t take long for the political season to start up again.
Perhaps, I might get a Hillary and Fatti Madi sighting?
