Let me finish tonight with a dazzling story of spirit and excitement.
My queen, Kathleen, has just returned from another conquest, this one of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa. She and our daughter Caroline - both on the right hand side of this picture - just climbed Kilimanjaro – all 19,000 feet of it.
It took them seven days and six nights of camping in 20 degree weather to get to the summit and back down. What can I say. I've got a wife and a daughter who do this kind of thing.
Kath is the executive Vice President of Marriott International. Caroline just graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Pennsylvania and has landed a job, by her own brains and wits I might add, with Google - which is like getting to be a Rhodes Scholar these days.
The two of them made it to the top - climbing some mighty steep slopes. They did it with determination, obviously, and ambition, and, something else.
Women today! What can I say! Wild! I'm living with two that climbed the highest peak in Africa. Their mother and grandmother would be proud. Don't you think?
