I Had to Go to Court Yesterday...

...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.

Lincoln Statue at Peoria County Courthouse (presented to Justice Sandra Day O'Connor)

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!
