Hello Yall, glad ya could stop by. Well I don't know about yall but I'll be glad when this darned Presidential election is over. I've learned all kinds of stuff about these candidates for President but I still don't know what the heck they plan on doing for this country. LOL.... election coverage has turned into a glorified gossip column that those fancy storebought tabloids like the one where ya read about those two headed chickens and all, can't even compare with. It's all a he said, she said thing now, so what is either one of them gonna do to help this country thats in such a big mess, me n Plumber Joe wanna know!! And since when was someone making $250,000 dollars a year middle class. Hell thats a rich person, at least it is in my part of the country. If I made that kinda money, I'd strut around like the boss Rooster in the henhouse, Sheesh give me a break. I think these people are way outta reach with reality, they've been drawing those big salaries toooooooo long, they've forgotten what the average person makes in a year, and you can bet your sweet ass it isn't $250,000 a year, if it is, I'm goin back to work.
Anyway this has been the longest Presidential campaign that I can ever remember, seems like they've been campaigning for about 5 or 6 years, I'll be so glad when its over, its getting me where I don't even care whether I vote or not. I think everyone working at the polls needs to make sure they have a quarter in their pocket so voters can determine who they're gonna vote for by flipping the coin. This is the very reason that I hate politics. And to top it all off, it really doesn't matter who we vote for, the electoral college is gonna put who they want in anyway.
But me being the dedicated American I am, I will vote.
In the meantime, I think I'll go around my neck of the woods and find all they dirt on people around here and file it just in case I have anyone that wants to take my job as mayor of Poverty Hill, that way I'll be ready with the dirt slangin details. I guess thats bout enough of my political prowess, the real ruler of Poverty Hill is telling me she wants to use the computer, and folks that means I've been overruled.
Yall come when ya can, the doors always open to my friends.
Hugz and Handshakes

Hello again everyone, greetings from Poverty Hill. Mannnnnnn the weather has been great here for the past couple of weeks, cool nights, mild days, and I'm lovin it. I can breathe almost like a regular person, well at least I thought I could until I decided to go for a walk in the woods and was reminded by my huffin and puffin that I'm not normal anymore. Oh well, I'll work with what I got.
Miss Judi and I was sitting around talking about Halloween coming up soon. Halloween just isn't the same as it used to be when I was growing up. It was one of those fun holidays for us kids, where we could dress up and load up on the goodies from around the neighborhood. Mom would put all kind of face paint on us and dress us up like all kinds of stuff, she enjoyed it as much as we did I think. Some of the kids even got those fancy store bought costumes which made them the envy of the neighborhood.......laffin. I always looked forward to seeing the lil kids come around dressed up hollerin "Trick or Treat." Seems like it was like that until I'd say 10 years ago. Now if we get 4 or 5 kids it's a lot. I know kids are still kids and they still love candy.....so whats happened? I heard someone say Halloween is a sadistic holiday where everyone that participates is some sort of Pagan.......BullShit..........how many 4,5,6,7 or 8 years olds have yall seen worshiping some sort of pagan or devil worshiping. That's about the dumbest dayum thing I've ever heard of.......give me a break. I never even thought about such a thing when I was getting dressed up as a hobo to get me some of those goodies, and kids now don't either, Lordy. Just let the kids have fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Keep em safe, but let em have fun. I'm beginning to wonder if it's not the generation of Mom's and Dad's that too lazy to take em out. Going to MacDonalds for Halloween just isn't the same thing..!!!!!!!!!!! My Grandkids are gonna dress up, I can bet ya that, I want them to look back and have memories of costumes and candy and having fun going from house to house saying "Trick or Treat.", with eyes big in anticipation of what kinds of treats they will get.
Anyway that's my view on Halloween for what its worth.....laffin.
Well I guess I've rambled enuff for now, I need to get my butt in gear, gotta get those pumpkins ready for the Grandkids to carve and paint. See yall again soon, stop by if ya get a chance, the doors always open to my friends.
Hugss and Handshakes
