T and R x 2, and thanks Ms. Benny!! 🙂 You’re right about my OTs getting a bit lengthy. However, as I have repeatedly stated, anytime I can help our Nest, I’m more than glad to do so. Hope you are getting back to 100%.



U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow, who has represented Michigan in the U.S. Senate since 2001 and risen to become a member of Democratic leadership in the chamber, announced Thursday morning she would not seek another term in 2024.

Stabenow, 72, who lives in Lansing, was the first woman to be elected a U.S. senator from Michigan in 2000 when she defeated Republican incumbent Sen. Spencer Abraham. Since then, she has won three more six-year terms and serves as chairman of the Agriculture Committee and of the Democratic Policy and Communications Committee.

She gave no specific reason for her decision to depart, other than to say she’s ready to spend time with her family, including her 96-year-old mother.

“Inspired by a new generation of leaders, I have decided to pass the torch in the U.S. Senate. I am announcing today that I will not seek re-election and will leave the U.S. Senate at the end of my term on January 3, 2025,” Stabenow said in a news release.


Something tells me this is not a spur of the moment. Going to be interesting to see who they have in mind to take over.


Whoa, la58! Do you think Whitmer or someone like her might take a crack at this one?
