NOT WATCHING THE NEWS
November 3, 2020
So today is the day. I haven't listened to the news all day and have read only a bit of it on line. I am shocked to learn that #45 supporters in at least two states attacked Biden rallys -- they blocked the entrance to a Harris rally so that her bus could not get in and she had to cancel, and another group, with flags flying surrounded a campaign bus and tried to push it off the highway. When the CHP tried to stop them, #45 said they weren't doing anything wrong.
#45 Junior now says that COVID deaths are nearly zero. 230,000+ dead. Zero. And the administration still doesn't have a plan for how to end the coronavirus, but he's in court trying to end the Affordable Care Act.
I can't even write about this any more because of the things it does to my stomach. I sincerely hope we won't be dealing with the election for the next several weeks.
Now we won't put a car in it...but we could. There is still a lot out in the carport that needs to go back into the garage, but when it's all finished Ned and Marta will be able to have exercise equipment and space in the garage and Ned hopes to set up a recording studio, so he can play his drum and maybe record a few things with a friend of his here in Davis.
Instead of watching the news on TV, I've been working my new puzzle and reading. I'm nearly finished with the delightful "Between the Stops" by Sandi Toksvig. She has such great stories to share including this one about a childrenl's show she was hosting, where each week they had a specific animal guest:
She also has a surprising amount of information about Napoleon's penis.
All this is much more pleasant and less stressful than listening to a day of specuation about voting and results. Unless you're reading Margaret and Helen, one of my favorite blogs. At their age, they figure this is probably their last political election.
I'm spending the day folding won ton and binge watching The West Wing.
