Friday Fragments

Someone finally won the 15 pound hamburger challenge at Denny's Beer Barrel Pub in Clearfield, PA.


Like I told Employee No. 3699, I don't know what is up with this election. For some reason, the "powers that be" have usually given us the chance to pick between the lesser of two evils. This is the first time in a very long time that one side is just so clearly more evil than the other. I got my Obama yard sign up on Sunday. Two others in the neighborhood have been so bold in this very, very red state. Today was the first morning that I've seen a neighbor bring his dog over to "water" my yard sign. I guess this is not really so bad. I had to open the door and say "Hi!", so I'm meeting people. The grass around the sign is getting greener too.


We have a Democratic governor here. I was the only one in the neighborhood with one of his yard signs. The lawn was amazingly green by the end of that campaign, and Gov. Brad Henry won re-election by a country mile :-)

You brave soul you.

I was walking Biscuit the other night when she shot out after a cat and we both ended up tangled up in a very red yard sign.

The sign was kind of demolished by the end of our struggle. Oops.

On the bright side, at least you're saving on the water bill. :)
