I do my best thinking at 100kph
I guess, because I have a lot of time on the road again – commuting from Plan Woolly to work.
Just as a matter of record – last night when I arrived home, Jorja was once again not where Jorja was supposed to be, the horses had knocked over their water trough and one has a cut on her leg. Paddock Boots for all! Alpacas and Sheeps were non-commital but breakfast this morning was gratefully received.
Alfred has a date with the shears this weekend 🙂
Anyway, as I drove in this morning I was blotting my Halloween post for The Other Blog. And I had terrific plans for “Nevermore” as I love The Simpsons version with James Earl Jones doing the narration, but: Do you think I could find a single Crocheted Raven??
Holy Hell – I’ve been doing the Other Blog for a year almost and … I’ve never *not* been able to find something!
So I went for Plan B.
Anyway – interrupting my thinking this morning is the Australian Broadcasting Commission’s Breakfast programme on 666AM. The Presidential Elections are newsworthy here and there’s a team driving across the US who are interviewing the average Joe (not Joe the plumber – Well done McCain’s people in Advance there!) and contrasting this with the Hyperbola coming forth from the candidates.
I am a fan of The West Wing – said it before, will say it again and I have concerns for the Democratic Nominee should he win – and the US people.
The interviewees this morning were from Mississppi which I believe is the poorest of the US States. The percentage of those who don’t fit into “White Middle Class” is high and so is the unemployed statistic.
My worry is that, in almost Jesus Christ Superstar fashion, what happens when Obama can’t feed the people, can’t heal the wounded?
And is that worse than what will happen if McCain is elected?
Anyway – we’re rolling towards a weekend here – no horse shows but I will be crocheting and enjoying a couple of days to myself!
Pictures to follow!
Hugs to you all!
