Oh....Tis a Sad Day in Mudville....
Lots of sad people today but also there are a lot of happy ones. Never have I seen the country so DIVIDED, when we are supposed to be UNITED. Wow.....such a place in history this will take. On a happier note for some of us, local tax increases have been voted down.....but what surprises me is that they were just barely voted down. For me, personally, I do not have any extra money for higher taxes right now. I am so hoping that the economy will turn around enough that I will once again be back where I was 10 years ago when I retired. .....Hey. I can dream.....right?
It's bright and sunshiney out today and the colors of the leaves that are left on some trees paint a pretty picture. However I have a task to do that is not so pretty. My friend and I are going to the funeral home 35 miles away to pay our respects. A co-worker's son has died.....and he was only thirty! He fought hard....he had been ill for a little over a year. I can't even begin to imagine the pain associated with that and I pray to God that I never do know it. No one.......no one should ever have to bury their child.
In my area we did get a little bit of "Sandy". The high winds caused many branches to go down and take wires with them. I was without power for 17 hours and it got pretty darn cold in here. But I'm very grateful we got it back that quickly when I see what's still going on east of me.
I am a horrible blogger and will be surprised if any of you even check out my site anymore. Those of you that do.....THANK YOU for still keeping me in mind. I just haven't had anything newsworthy to write about......and maybe that's a good thing. My life just keeps truckin' along....with no twists or turns and I'm also grateful for that. Twists and turns mean chaos and chaos I can do without. Anyway, I'm going to try and post more often from now on. Not that I expect chaos, but maybe you'd like to read about the fly I found in my fish. LOL
