I MAY RUN FOR POLITICAL OFFICE .. I have my team gathering around me ..

Patti .. with her years of experience working on various Alaskan voting campaigns .. and my son Robb a former radio announcer with his ability to turn-a-phrase .. will be my campaign managers.

How about Robb’s ideas for our campaign slogans ..

“We’ll go far .. With Kan Baatar.”

“Kan’s THE MAN.”

“Our Man Kan!”

“If anyone can .. Kan can.”

Some of my constituents perhaps ..

    Political office? Well, you certainly have the gregariousness for it, and you are right, I HAVE worked on several campaigns, BUT, the honest ones who are elected are few and far between and it seems to take its toll on even those honest ones. Stick to traveling and spreading joy as you so effectively do!

    The native dress in Mongolia is beautiful, colorful and delightful. The meals look good. The snow looks like it is getting serious. I shall soon be experiencing all of it with you!! Love, Patti

      We would wish-our-lives-away if we could .. I wish you were here right now this minute. You are with your KML ladies group and soon will be watching CBS Survivor. I think politics is not for me. But I had fun with it in this post. I just love the traditional Mongolian attire. Yes so colorful. Much Joy and Love .. Cap ..
