OK, so now I’m laughing at the coincidences and ironies. My husband is definitely a “Southern Boy”, in that he is a Gibbons, related to Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top (love their music) and with ancestor Robert E. Lee, (and so I was also wondering about the spelling of your own surname). Anyway, what a great and gutsy way to introduce yourself at the airport, and glad that your intentions for that trip played out so well. I confess I was raised Republican and for quite some time now, if I had to affiliate with any political party (a whole other conversation) it would be Libertarian. In any case…now, if we can only get your philosophy injected into the current geopolitical situation on Mother Earth!
