Vanity, vanity. All is vanity

It's that time of year again. That time when all the politicians are out in force making appearances at places you never see them at any other time of year trying to convince you that they care.

Care about what?

Themselves! That's the answer.

OK, not that I'm vain. Of course not!

But there I was at the local gym, trying hard like I do to get my thick body looking thin. I've been trying hard for a looong time now. I end the day (every day) asking Glory if I'm making progress. I just want to know. I'm not vain.

Anyway, this isn't about me.

So while sweating on the treadmill a couple of weeks ago I noticed a new face that looked somewhat familiar. I smiled a nonverbal hello and went on sweating. The next day he was there again. And then the next day, and the next. I then realized that he was one of the district court judges who's up for reelection.

My guess, judging by his physique, is he doesn't need to be there. I do! What's he doing there?

What's he doing there?

Getting votes!!

Election day is two weeks from today.

He'll get reelected. Lots of business owners, lawyers, teachers, county employees, etc., go to the same gym.

This judge is smart.

But, still, he's vain, unlike me.

Okay, fine!

Here it is for all of you who have been whining about our blog:

We have our house up for sale and we have a contingent offer on a house that's closer to work and church and most of our friends. It's a little nervewracking and we're a little impatient but still trusting that this is the right thing to do.

We are busy, but because of having to keep our po-dunk telephone line open we just don't crank up the dial-up as often as we normally have. We're not Luddites, yet, but it's starting to feel very house-on-the-prairie-ish in these parts.

We are having our fourth baby the end of April. That means that Glory has to be very discriminating in how her energy is spent. Things are looking good, though, and the baby's heartbeat is strong and steady.

So, that's it. When there's more to share, like house sale news, ultrasound news, etc. we'll get it posted...alrighty?
