Recently we were over at the Federal Court House in downtown Cincinnati for the Naturalization Ceremony. It was a very moving event as there were people from all over the world, all with their own story, all becoming U.S. citizens. I met Gulnara Almukametova six years ago the day after she arrived here. I was so excited to meet a real live Tatar! A few years later Becky and I went to visit her hometown of Bakali. It is only one of the most wonderful places on earth. Gulia has always been a hard worker. These days she is selling cars and going to college. I am very proud of her.
Cincinnati Reds Findlay Market Opening Day Parade Rosie Red is waving to us as we await the beginning of the parade. Becky and I were riding our bikes in the parade. It was a day when everyone is Cincinnati proud. There was plenty of time to take pictures as we waited up by Findlay Market.
