Thanks to Kerry, discovered a fun blog (see links) called swapatorium, a mixture of flea market, antique store, and garage sale finds artfully arranged into a blog. Check it out and enjoy! (And yes, Kerry is the same Kerry who won the "Identify this Food" contest.) To see Kerry and Zandra's blog, go to Bellinghamsters.

More Gems

1. Beauty is in the eye of the beerholder.
2. Quoting one is plagiarism; quoting many is research.
3. I'm not a complete iodiot - some parts are missing.
4. Out of my mind. Back in five minutes.
5. God must love stupid people; he made so many.
6. The gene pool could use a little chlorine.

Gems from Gene

1. My husband and I divorced over religious differences. He thought he was God and I didn't!

2. I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it!

3. I work hard because millions on welfare depend on me.

Dreary Days have arrived

Hate to be glum, but it looks like the dreary days have started in Richland. Usually they start around Nov. 1 and then we do not see the sun until February. We got a little reprieve this year. Time to turn on as many lights as possible and light the pellet stove in the evening!! Sometimes I feel like a bear: hibernate under the covers with a good book and come out in the spring time. One thing that does help is a garland or two with those little twinkly white lights strung around. I made one with fall leaves for the entry way. After Thanksgiving, I'll put up the Christmas one. I'm also going to make a seashell one for the bedroom.

Election Day

Ah! Finally the day has come and now we can vote and get this thing over with. Away with all the signs cluttering up the landscape, all the political bashing ads, all the posturing candidates. I have to admit that it is the first time in my life that I did not vote for a presidential candidate, although I did vote for other positions. That feels really weird, but I just couldn't bring myself to vote for either of the two main candidates. I voted no on all the issues presented on our ballot, too. If that qualifies me for a one-way ticket to curmudgeon-land, well then, so be it. Bring on Thanksgiving! We're in need of a holiday!
