A Weekly Offering of This n That

Rainy Day is my alter ego. She is the little angel that sits on one shoulder and whispers in my ear to forgo that 6" piece of triple chocolate fudge with the four scoops of ice cream on it; she is also the little devil who sits on my other shoulder and convinces me that I can eat just one bite of each and be satisfied, and then laughs with such great abandon when in fact, I eat the whole thing, she falls off my shoulder. Mostly, Rainy Day helps me see the humor in living and, mostly, she encourages me down the right path. Not necessarily the straight and narrow one (how fun is that?) but the path that offers the most adventure and fun.

Almost Election Day!

In just under two weeks, it will be Election Day in the USA, and you, Gentle Reader if you are a citizen of this country, can help elect our next President, not to mention your State and Local officials.

Rainy Day has already voted. She lives in a state where they mail ballots, and she received hers, filled it out, and mailed it back. Rainy Day voted for people who respect other people of both genders to make decisions regarding their lives and livelihood, and who truly believe this country was built, and will be maintained, by a strong, job wielding Middle Class. Rainy Day has her criteria to choose the 'Best Person,' and she is sure you also have yours. Manners are big with Rainy Day and the people she voted for have manners. And put out the fewest negative ads.

All Rainy Day asks is that you carefully weigh your decision, and not make it based on someone else's hysteria or fear, or false statements, but give each issue on your ballot careful and thoughtful consideration. Do a little research on your own. Don't take the word of your neighbor, your priest or pastor, or the tv sound bytes.

The important thing is that you Vote - intelligently. And that you encourage your friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors to also vote, even if their vote may cancel your vote.

Remember, if you don't vote, you won't earn the right to voice your opinion for another four years!

And if, after reading and researching everyone and everything, you still can't decide, vote for Tyrion Lannister! A Lannister aways pays his (national) debt!

"A mind needs books like a sword needs whetstone." – Tyrion Lannister

A country that does not respect women, respects no one.
