Election Day!!


Ok, I admit it.  I am a political junky.  This is one of my favorite days out of this year.  I don’t care who you vote for, just get out there and vote.  We voted absentee because of being in Indy with my brother.  I come from a long line of political junkies, going way back to my Great Grand Parents.  My parents worked at the Poles, my Aunt was a district committee person, you get the idea.  I love the whole process.


It has been very cold here in the last few days, and it is only expected to get up into the 50’s this whole week.  I made a big pot of chili on Sunday, for football Sunday, so we will have leftover chili this evening with a warm pan of cornbread.


We had a big game to watch last night.  The Colts, my team, played the Houston Texans.  The Colts were playing with most of their big play, players out on the injured list, so I didn’t give us much chance to win, but they, really Peyton Manning, pulled it off and won 30 to 17.  It was a great game.


I got a call from my daughter, Shannon yesterday.  Her and my little sister, Jeannie are planning to come up this week end.  We are of course going to spend lots of time with her Uncle Boone, but she also wants to do some shopping and other things.  It will kind of be a girls week end.  She is going to try and bring my grand daughter, Chelsi too, but she is so busy all the time.  You know, you remember what it was like to be 15 and always on the go. 


Thanks for all of your comments on my last blog.  I did actually complain to the company that cleaned my carpets and couch, but they told me they don’t guarantee that everything will come out.  So, I got down on my hands and knees Saturday and got all the stains out.  Since the couch dried, it does look a little bit better.  I also need to be fair and share with you that  the carpet and the couch are about 10 years old, so I guess our next big expense will be on new carpet and  couch.  They both still look pretty good though.


Gonna make this a short post and get a little something done before going for our walk.  Catch you later… :)

That is a pretty header picture! Have a great day!

Nice job on that header! I watched the football game last night while switching back and forth to the World Series. Both were good games - glad your Colts won.

I am looking forward to watching the election results tonight. Here in Washington state we have mail-in ballots, so we may not know the final results of our races for a few days. That's a bummer. I am optimistically hoping that voter fraud will be kept to a minimum this year. ;-)

Went over and voted with the electronic machines this afternoon. Wonder how they could do a recount with those! Trust me! Ya OK!
