Every year it enters our home like a plague.

It never gets better, in fact, it seems to worsen. For reasons I can't understand, my wife welcomes it, while I abhor it.

You guessed it. I'm talking about Lifetime Network Christmas movies.

For the next two years the House of Representatives will be doing some very important work.

They will be non-stop filming sound bites to be used in commercials by Democrats running against them in 2024. It's going to be hilarious.

So, Keri Lake has completed her audition for Fox News.

(You didn't think she really wanted to be governor, did you?)

Will she get a prime time one hour show, or an hour on Sunday mornings?

I've changed my mind about Trump.

I used to wake up every morning hoping to hear he dropped dead or shot himself in the head.

Now I hope he stays alive for as long as possible so he can help Democrats win elections like he has this week.

Does anyone notice anything different about my posts tonight? (Mostly in GD)

I'm out of Bourbon. I'll try not to let it happen again.

How will you listen to the election results?

In my younger days I was a stay up all night person. Now I stay up fairly late, but actually get many final results the next morning. I'm on the west coast, so don't have to stay up too late to get some east coast results.

This year is going to be unique. Months ago my wife mad a very important medical appointment for Wednasday, and it really can't be delayed. We weren't even thinking about it being the morning after the election. It's not about anything life threatening, but it's important. The catch is it is 150 miles from where we live. So it requires me getting up at about 5:00 am. And it's going to be raining. We do have SeriusXM radio in the car, so we can listen to MSNBC on the radio.

So that's how we will get the results. AT 75 mph heading south toward Sacramento on hwy 5. Should be interesting. Never done it this way before. At least with having to do that drive, I won't drink the night before so I won't have that day after election hangover. There will be donuts.

I was watching President Biden speak at a rally today,

and it struck me how clear, sharp and strong his voice was after all the public speaking he has done lately. Many on the campaign trail are starting to lose their voices somewhat. I know I would be. Remarkable for someone his age. Good for him.

There was a house fire at a midwestern farm house.

The only thing that saved the people from being burned to death was the fact that their pet pig woke them when the fire started, so they got out safe even though the house was a total loss.

The local news thought this was a good story so they came out to interview the family and meet the pet pig. The dad told the story and the reporter noticed the pig only had three legs. The reporter asked how the pig came to only have three legs and the dad said "Well, with a special pig like this you don't want to eat him all at once."
