Saddling up for a P&N Adventure

Howdy and yeehaw! I won’t be writing a blog next week for you because I’m about to saddle up the SUV and kiss my hubby and doggies and job responsibilities goodbye for a spell. This Thursday, I’ll be trading Midwestern plains for Western mountains, and riding shotgun will be my faithful sidekick Patrick, 11. (He’ll be the one in the dark sunglasses and ball cap, toting a toy rifle.)

You are really slowing me down.”

Who gives a flying fish whether or not a neighbor voted?

If you check (as you can), you’ll see I have voted in every federal and state election since my 18th birthday. Every election, that is, except one – a primary wherein my party’s candidates were both the same flavor, though they’d spent millions pretending otherwise. However, even from this lofty height, I am infuriated by the circulating lists of voting behavior for a recent election.
