Pulling Hair

Arrg! Just got back from a 22-hour driving ordeal to and from Greensboro, NC to participate in my Gram's service. Tons of family there, lots of great tasting food and beer - if it weren't for all the daggum Democrats in my family, it would have been the perfect weekend! Who knew? Just kidding, btw...it was a great weekend - even the service. Gram wasn't so much mourned as remembered - and I believe that is what the purpose was this weekend.

I've got a stack of business, generated from my personal money printer - my fax machine - waiting to be called and serviced. I've got installs scheduled for every day, and I have to still cut grass every day this week. I HAVE to get it all done by Friday, since TriSherpaDi and I are heading to Panama City Beach to cheer for all the IMFL participants this coming weekend. Another mad-dash weekend on the road to look forward to.

If all goes well, I WILL sign up for a couple of races here before the end of the month, and get busy training again on the 1st. Next month I start cutting every other week, slicing my work load in half, giving more of an opportunity to run, bike, swim, and now canoe to my hearts content. I certainly need it. And miss it.

I'm surprised that you, of all people, would complain about Dems. They were the ones that came up with the GI bill, did you know that? The GOP kept trying to block added benefits to veterans until after WWII, when it finally passed. Anyway, eat, rest, and feel better. Cheers!

Glad you made it to Gram's service.

And, Dems...yea, I am totally outnumbered now by Obama/Biden signs in my neighborhood - thanks C. Powell!

Guh..on a happier note, I hope you got the EVITE for the IM FL 08 (aka party of the year). Please forward it to all the other podcast/tri friends coming to FL. Will be the time of our lives!! Fun, fun..fun!

Hey, quit beating on the Dems. It's not like they're bad people. They're just wrong!

Sorry to hear about your Gram, too.
Some of my favorite people are Dems, and I can't wait for the election to be over so we can get back to agreeing on everything like in the olden days, like, a year ago! when we all still liked each other!
Somebody posted on my blog (MS R) that all disputes should just be decided by a dance-off. I think it's a great idea.

Go McCain/Palin!
