Election? What election? (kidding)

We each voted early. It would have been nice to have voted "often" but we resisted the temptation, unlike some we've read about...but I digress.

However, the Sun, Earth, and water could not be resisted.

It was as if the land said..."Don't despair- Look UP!"

So we did.

The stream said- "Be still- listen. Life is good"-
And it is.
I should think about moving to the mountains : )

The election's over. The voters spoke. My side didn't win this one, and by enough of a lead that even ACORN couldn't manufacture a different outcome.

How it will play out ahead...said the zen master, "we'll see..."

As for the mountains...living at the base of them and working in them...I'm an ol' farmboy from Iowa. Were I ever to leave this venue, that's where I'd probably return. But for now, I love life here at the base of the foothills, with the mountains 30 minutes west. Been here 37 years. 'Nuff said.

Glad you're having a great time! Few deserve it more!

I had to see the picture of Trout. *sigh* What a beauty.

living in the mountains only leaves me wishing for one thing: The coast.

Trout is lookin mighty fine.

Sounds as though you had a good time with K9. I miss the woods. The desert has its own certain charm, but just doesn't seem to be a good fit for me. Guess you can take the boy out of WI, but you can't take WI out of the boy.
