If you read the Inspector Gamache books by Louise Penny, I have read all of them, you know a little about the Eastern Townships of Quebec where Hillary and Bill Clinton are vacationing with the family and close friends. Louise Penny is also staying at the resort with them. She visited with them at their Chappaqua home back in March. Bill is hoping his friend, former prime minister Jean Chrétien, will also be joining them to help him celebrate his birthday.

Here they all are out for a boat ride on Lake Massawippi.  We get our first glimpse of little Aidan.

Say what you will about the Daily Mail. You can always count on them for a wealth of pictures!

Looks like they are having fun. Typical Bill, cannot rip himself away from people who want to ask him questions, and, as usual, has something instructive to say.

President Bill Clinton delivered a eulogy at the memorial for Helmut Kohl on Saturday. Bill and Hillary Clinton both held a deep affection for Kohl. There is no indication that Clinton was serving in any official capacity or who, if anybody, was leading a U.S. delegation, if any. My, my….

World leaders bid farewell to ‘patriot’ Helmut Kohl

The former German chancellor was remembered as both a German and European patriot, who paved the way to a united Europe.

UK, Saturday 01 July 2017

Helmut Kohl is considered one of the great architects of the European Union

Past and present world leaders have bid farewell to Helmut Kohl, the German chancellor who helped unite Europe.

Mr Kohl, who died aged 87 on 16 June, was remembered as both a German and European patriot, who deserved “a place of honour in the European pantheon”.

The former chancellor becomes the first person to be honoured with an official memorial event by the European Union in the French city of Strasbourg.

Among the many dignitaries present at the memorial was former US president Bill Clinton, who thanked Kohl for giving “us the chance to be involved in something bigger than ourselves”.

“Bigger than our terms of office, bigger than our fleeting careers,” he said.

“Because all of us, sooner or later, will be in a coffin like that,” he added.

“And the only gift we can leave behind, is a better future for our children, and the freedom to do their own choices. Including their own mistakes.”

The 70-year-old politician said his wife, Hillary Clinton, said he loved Mr Kohl “because he was the only person with a bigger appetite for food than I have”.

“The 20th century in Europe really began on his watch,” Mr Clinton added.

If you’ve seen a Broadway show in the last six months or so, there’s a significant chance you saw a surprise double bill: the play or musical you paid for and a celebrity cameo by Hillary Clinton, smiling politely as the audience gave her another standing ovation. On Thursday, the former Democratic nominee, her husband Bill, and her daughter Chelsea attended a performance of Come From Away, a musical about the roughly 7,000 air travelers grounded in Gander, Newfoundland, after planes were rerouted following the aerial attacks on 9/11. Christopher Ashley took home a Tony for Best Direction for the production earlier this month.

The musical’s co-writer David Hein later praised the Clintons, who posed for photos with the cast, on Facebook. Hein wrote in part, “So many lines in the show resonated differently — especially the scene where passengers try to vote for a different destination and are told, “this is not a democracy.” Afterwards onstage, they were so gracious, taking pictures and speaking to each of us. President Clinton told Caesar one of his 9/11 stories, when he met a Muslim man who was afraid his countrymen would never trust him again. We and Sharon got to introduce our daughters to Chelsea. And Hilary told us, ‘this is a show that the world needs now.’ So honoured to have this story of Newfoundland kindness recognized and celebrated by them.”

Last year, we all were so sure that this year she would be at Arlington laying wreaths. That was not to be. But despite the rain and chilly temps, Hillary marched in Chappaqua today with former President Bill Clinton and Governor Andrew Cuomo. The pipes and drums braved the weather in their rain gear. Our friend Oscar Flores marched too, as always!
