...because I was given the opportunity to present a framed print of the photograph below, that I took last fall, to Retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor! The photo was taken at our county courthouse where there is a statue of Abraham Lincoln located in the place he once stood many, many years ago.
When Justice O'Connor received the print, she studied it carefully and said "Oh! I really like this! I think I'll hang it in the Supreme Court." Goodness gracious, can you imagine if she actually does hang it there? Wow, wow, wow!
And as if this honor wasn't enough, I received a signed copy of her latest book, "Out of Order: Stories from the History of the Supreme Court".
Justice O'Connor, who was the first woman ever appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court, is incredibly down-to-earth, unpretentious, and quite hilarious; truly a remarkable woman. Needless to say, this middle-aged mama never expected to experience something like this when she first started getting serious about photography 2 1/2 years ago!
For a few pictures from her visit yesterday: http://www.pjstar.com/photos/x935160678/Retired-Supreme-Court-Justice-Sandra-Day-OConnor?page=0
So yes, I had to go to court--and I'm so glad I did!
