Here’s something every boomer parent can identify with: your kid offering your house, ranch, estate, lodge, trailer, for a gigantic party to honor people who have different values than you.
Jenna Bush Hagar told Ellen DeGeneres she could get married to Portia DeRossi at Daddy’s ranch in Crawford.
Well, it almost happened that way…
Observes DeGeneres: “So, the ranch was a great place to get married – it looked like nobody could fly over and get pictures or bother you, really.”
“Yeah,” concurs Hager, “that was really nice” – which prompts DeGeneres to ask, “So, can we borrow it for our wedding, can we get the ranch?”
“Sure,” replies an obliging Hager.
“Okay, great,” says DeGeneres.
Mama Bush kept out of the conversation. Does this mean Laura Bush has no say in who parties in Crawford and they have to consult Daddy?
How many times did you have this conversation? “Well, you’ll have to talk with your father.”
