War of 1812Image via Wikipedia

Today's the anniversary of the British burning Washington during the War of 1812. Could have been worse. And you have to admit, they did have a legitimate beef since we trashed York up in Canada.

But Dolley Madison got to be a heroine, saving Gilbert Stuart's painting of George Washington. So here's a salute to you, Dolley, fashion leader, social lioness, and rescuer of national artifacts!

Although I'm a hard-working author, I also have a full-time day job where I wear a suit and professional shoes.

It feels so good today to relax in sandals and blue jeans. Wish I could do this a lot more.
