Rainy Day

It's raining cats and dogs today, so we have opted out of the YMCA and are staying home. Mini-me has been complaining of a sore throat since yesterday, so we're not even going over for her gymnastics class. It's a good day to work on Flower's quilt. I just have to do the binding and then it's done.

Election Day was very exciting for me. Maryland was a battleground state for the Republicans. I always vote with the party. Only a few of my candidates won: Virginia Fifer is still the Registrar of Wills, even though her opponent, Finefrock had a great campaign slogan -- Frock the Vote. Chuck Jenkins is our Sheriff, Charlie Smith is the new State's Attorney. But Team Erlich bit the dust. Our yard signs didn't do any good. I turned on MSNBC yesterday in time to hear Chris Matthews say that the losers would all cry because that's what you do when all those people personally reject you. Our good friend, Scott Rolle, ran and lost for Attorney General, but he always has his acting career to fall back on (he played The Old Man in A Christmas Story last year).

Do you live in Mayberry? I just love your local elections. I heard someone on the radio say that he is not going to allow Nancy Pelosi to control his personal happiness, so I guess I won't either. I don't know which bugs me the most about her: that she is such a liberal or that she is ten years older than I am and looks 10 years younger.

Grandpatty, take heart: Pelosi is heavily endorsed by the ASAPS (American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery)--you do the math . . .
