So sorry I was out last week. Actually the computer decided to take the day off on Thursday. When this happened I was able to make what should have been a relatively minor problem into a crisis. Good old American know how!
So glad Fall is finally here. This summer was a real difficult one for us. Now with the cool air and the shorter days it is starting to look like we can finally take a few deep breathes. Plus we have the season of ghosts coming up from Halloween to New Year’s Day. That always helps to lighten the burdens.
Here is hoping the Dems can bet their infrastructure bills passed and get this country headed in the right direction once again. And now for a fun fall video:
