Travel Time

I am off at dinner time to Lake City for the meeting where Im the guest speaker. If it were not for the woman who asked, Id never have said yes. Five hour drive one way, three hour meeting, 30 minute speech, five hour drive back home.

However, the company will be most excellent as they are a group of enormously patriotic women, who spend most of their free time volunteering at the local VA hospital. You cant beat hanging with folks like that.

Meanwhile, I tried on my blue suit last night only to realize Id gained too much weight over Christmas and it doesnt fit well not even with Spanx, which is just as well as when I put it on with my red white and blue scarf that has in script, the name of every President of the United States (I told you we were a patriotic group!), I thought I looked like a Hillary Clinton wannabe.

Blech. I cant stand Hillary.

Black pants and boots now, with a jacket and my scarf. I have to have the scarf

Meanwhile, I leave you with this last thought for the day. I cant get this picture out of my head every time I think of a certain Presidential Candidate. It is what it is

One of my daughter's favorite movies is I (heart) Huckabees. Of course, she and her friends refer to it as "I Fart F***abees". That is the phrase that pops into my mind when I hear this candidate's name - although, honestly, I haven't read up enough on Huckabee to have formulated an opinion.

I'm sure he's a perfectly nice guy, but a couple things have been off putting enough for me, that he won't be on the receiving end of my vote.

That said, its just the name. When I first heard his name, Huckleberry Hound popped into my head... and has STAYED.
