Perhaps it was just one of those slow news days, but no one we encountered on Wednesday was at all inclined to talk about politics. By coincidence we ran into a lot more more folks than usual in the course of our daily chores, which took us all over town in our brand-new and swanky if somehwhat-used convertible, and combined with the perfect weather that’s been going on around here in the central plains lately we have to say it made for a nice respite from the usual gloom and doom.
In between we checked in on the internet and the talk radio stations to hear about the latest political developments, but that was mostly about the Republican nominee’s years-old feud with the queen of some beauty pageant he’d once produced, and the latest stock market quotations weren’t worth mentioning, and the Democratic alternative was still too awful to mention, so we were quite content to listen in our friends’ more quotidian complaints.
That’s the big news from Wednesday, so far as we can tell, but we hope to have something juicy more juicy from Thursday to talk about on Friday. In the the meantime, we wish you the same sort of perfect weather and apolitical encounters with friends that we’ve been having around here lately.
