Them Was Fighting Words

John and sister # 1 are on the same side, in other words they agree, thank goodness. They call each other several times a week and discuss the debates, the news, the canidates. They can talk an hour or more while I'm washing dishes, clothes, anything that needs to be done. Sister # 2 lives in the same town far away as sister # 1. They will all be this way in December and sister # 2 was planning a family reunion. Whoops that sister is on the other side so she has canceled said family reunion all of a sudden. Maybe that is a good thing. John's daughter and ex-wife whom she lives with are on the other side too. When we went to their house yesterday to offer them some free tickets to a supper they had put a bumper sticker on the truck John furnishes them to drive with his insurance on it. It was against John's and sister # 1's canidate. Them was fighting words but when he saw it daughter had gone inside. He threatened to tell her to take the bumper sticker off but after discussing it with sister decided it was best to ignore it and pretend he didn't see it to take the wind out of thier sails. As for me  I have a vote and I have an opinion but my lips are sealed.

Yeah, it seems when I keep quiet it comes back at me as 'You know how WE feel about that!" hahahahahahaa

Some folk can laugh and agree to disagree, others must throw something.

I prefer to just live my life. I vote the correct way anyway, no matter how others feel. Then again we all vote that way don't we, huh?

Odd. My sister asked me the other day which candidate's plan would benenfit me & Pete the most. I told her that wasn't what concerned me most. For me it is all about who will get us in the direction to have the best nation for Bubba & Bug and their children to live.

Way to go Paula. Most men don't like ti talk long on the phone. Joe's sister called several times and he let it go to voice mail. I was in here and picked it up. She talked my ear off and I looked pleadingly at Joe, her brother and he just smiled and shook his head, no.

The lips sealed seems like the wise choice, but we all know you are wise.

Hi Paula. I had to smile when reading about John's truck "pulling" for the wrong side...lol. You are the smart one, in keeping a low profile. :)
Take care, DD
