I like him too, Pat, and I loved the original StarTrek. There are so many subtle and sometimes not so subtle messages woven into all their plots. I wish we could tell Scotty to beam up the JA and dump him on the dark side of the moon, but even that might still be too close for comfort. LOL
Heading out for early voting this morning. Hoping there are a LOT of people doing the same
We (myself, dh and dd) voted on Monday. There was a line when we got there, and a line when we left. Early voting numbers for a midterm are way high, I think I heard they have surpassed early voting numbers for the 2016 presidential election. In my state the Democrats outnumber the Republicans in early voting.
3-4 Police officers were wounded by suspect when confronting him. A security guard would probaly have been killed. So, JA, has another dumb response to a shooting. No surprise there. For him, it’s never about gun control, the NRA, etc. He whines about the length of time for death penalty cases. Of course, forgetting the fact that many are eventually found innocent over the years it takes for appeals.
Donnie Jr must not listen to daddy or daddy just winked at him when he was reading TelePromter speech about civility. Last night Jr called MT Senator a piece of garbage.
HI. i live in Madison Wisconsin. Our legislature is RepublicN nd our present governor too. But Tony Evers is running a good race as is our Us senator Tammy Baldwin. I am writing as a shooting in PA temple.
Madison Wisconsin (263.6/09/150) restarting October 4 2021. my new assessment said blue 23 points. but can't exercise yet.
I voted and there were quite a few people there. One of the ladies helping was one of my sons (favorite) former teachers, so it was nice to chat with her while waiting. She said they were swamped with people earlier in the day, and it's been like that since they opened last week.
My name is Rene IG @dotren1tx since I'm not good at adding photos on here lol
And, just what does one do til 2 am?....I used to stay up till the wee hours of the morning cleaning house about once a week, (sick I know), but I liked waking up to a clean house. Now at 70, I could care less....just throw a sock at the cobweb in the corner & call it good....;-)

Perhaps it would be a good idea to keep an eye on a person who has 21 guns registered in their name. IMO they are either getting ready for the zombie apocalypse or planning something horrible in the real world.
The horror just keeps growing, until we become almost numb to it. We can't let that happen though, so it's good to read about heavy early voter turnouts. I want DH and I to go vote tomorrow. I'm afraid to put it off as I never know what the family situation here may be, and I don't want to take a chance on not being able to vote by putting it off until the last minute. This vote is too important! Of course here in TN my vote doesn't usually count for a lot, but at least I feel like it makes a statement.
There's beautiful sunshine out the window, and that is looking good. I had such a good day yesterday. First I went with DD and family to Memphis to watch a scrimmage for DGS's fifth grade robotics club. That was really interesting, and it's amazing to watch these kids build and program their robots.
Afterwards I went with DD to Missouri to pick up the rescue dog they got as a surprise for the kids. Wow! That rescue place was on the back side of nowhere so I'm glad I was with DD and she wasn't going there alone. But, the puppy they got was absolutely the cutest thing you've ever seen. She's a Coton de Tulear/Shih Tzu mix and just precious. I'm not normally an animal person--don't dislike them or anything like that, just not one that is usually especially attracted to them (forgive me please, Pat! ), but this puppy is precious. Of course, the kids were over the moon excited when we finally got back with her last night. So it was a happy day all around.
With so much hatred, violence, and sadness in the world all around us it felt really good just to have a happy day, and see the joy on the DGKs faces. JA no matter how awful you are, you couldn't take that away.
