Honorable mentions ...
Steven honored me yesterday with a recommendation in his post. Seems he'd been "tagged" by a fellow blogger, but didn't want to follow all of the tagging rules, so I am under no obligation whatsoever to do the same. Goody! (I'm not real big on following all of the rules, either!)
I've recommended various of his posts from time to time and have been known to occasionally/frequently make comments. One of his really strong points (imo) is that he will usually respond, sometimes at great length. Makes me feel like my comments/opinions matter. I like that.
If you'd like to catch that particular post -- and let me prepare you for the facts that his capital letter key does not seem to be working and his 'favourite' spelling might look a bit odd -- here's the link.
Sunday morning ...
I almost didn't watch Charles Osgood's show this morning -- just 'knew' there would be a ton of political stuff on there -- but I'm so glad I did!
Have you ever heard of Rabbit Hash, Kentucky? I never had!
Well, it seems that they're having an election this coming Tuesday. "So what's new about that, Goldenrod?" you might well ask. "Ho hum."
What's "new" is that the only 'human' entered in their mayoral race has received a total of two (2) votes!! Quite a few dogs, one of which -- the 3-legged one -- is leading the vote tally with 1773 votes.
In a fairly close second is Lucy Lou, a Border collie, with 1660. Third place is held by Higgins, a miniature donkey, whose rallying cry can be heard far and wide ... ... "Why not vote for a jackass? You know you're going to have one in office, anyway!"
I smiled a whole lot during this segment of the show this morning, and then Googled some information for you. You can easily do the same for yourself. One site in particular, this one, you should probably catch in a hurry because they warn that the contents may change as the election approaches. (Then try it again tomorrow and again Tuesday and a third time Wednesday to see if charges of election fraud have been filed.)
What else is new about this election is that you can vote online. Note that online voting ends tomorrow night at 8pm EST. Only fair, I guess. Read more about the individual candidates here.
Oh! I almost forgot to mention that all of the candidates are flagrantly trying to buy your votes! Each vote costs $1, and all proceeds go to the Rabbit Hash Historical Society.
Take that, Charlie Brown! ...
Tammy's latest venture into watercolors produced this magnificent pumpkin! Isn't it just great??
