This picture of Ronald Reagan pardoning a turkey, who shows its appreciation by fluffing its wings, reminds me to write about how much I am enjoying reading The Reagan Diaries edited by historian Douglas Brinkley. I am finding it a fascinating glimpse into the man, Ronald Reagan. Every once in a while his sense of humor catches me by surprise, and I laugh uproariously for a few minutes. He was a true man of faith and convictions, who loved his God, his country, and his wife. I am glad he decided to keep a diary.
