Election Week

Election week is coming to a close. Thomas voted in his first ever election of any kind. Whether or not you are satified with the various outcomes of the various races that concern you, it's over now, and I for one am looking forward to not getting phone calls from the Republicans (Democrats) telling me that the world will come to an end if the Democrats (Replublicans) are voted into office.

And I can spend a little less time taking out the trash now that I'm not getting six or eight pieces of negative campaign materials in the mail. You know you're in trouble in an election, by the way, when most of the literature you get has an unflattering picture of the opposing candidate on the cover instead of a flattering picture of the politician you're being asked to vote for.

This morning I had a handyman take care of the only task in my electrical installation that I decided not to do myself: putting up the mast where the electrical service will come in. It involved cutting through the roof of the house and I don't trust myself with that kind of thing. Now I just need to run wire to my ground rods and I can have the electric company fire us up.

Meanwhile, Sunday is the official start of Production Week (lovingly known as Hell Week) for Oklahoma! at the Village Players Theater. We're going through that phase when we all wonder if we will be ready in time, though the last week or so has brought about amazing progress. I think it's going to be a great show, worthy of VP's thirtieth anniversary. I'm proud to be a part of it.

So, a busy schedule. But at least it's one filled with activities that are worth my time.

LOL. That's exactly how I feel about it .

My guy was Ron Paul and he never got the critical mass . It looked good early on, but somehow all those people clicking on his website and YouTube videos never manifested themselves in real votes during the primaries.

Well it's over and I hope the new president does well . I'm afraid whoever inherits the mess made by the neo-cons who have run things into the ground over the last 8 years has their work cut out for them.
