This is President Barack Obama’s last day in the White House. He and First Lady Michelle Obama have led by example, with grace, humility, patience, and understanding.
So here’s the obvious choice for today’s post: The 2009 Obama Inauguration spoon. Made by the Watson Company (and really, what souvenir spoon isn’t made by them these days?), this silver plated spoon was produced for the 56th Presidential Inauguration ceremonies, which took place on January 20, 2009.
And now I’m going to go make a strong cocktail.
Thank you, Barack and Michelle, for your 8 years of service.
