Amanda Scarlett's wedding day
Wednesday marked the second consecutive day I was called off work due to rain. We knew this was coming based on conversations with long time residents of SRRVC Terry and Greg. According to them, beginning in late October you can go 3-5 days without working due to rain. We had a lovely October as you know if you are a regular reader, and I only missed one work day due to rain, but now it is time to 'pay the piper'. Thankfully, we do not need to earn any money this Fall/Winter, and are just happy to work enough hours to cover our site cost. Of course, the rain offers more opportunities for reading, and that is what I occupied myself with most of the day. TLE, on the other hand, did work her two hour shift having the distinct advantage of being able to work indoors in the office.
I love a rainy night....Eddie Rabbitt

Of course, we still do not know who won the election on Tuesday. Based on most of the mainstream news organizations and pollsters Biden had a 10+% lead over Trump on election day, he (Trump) was going to lose in a landslide, the Dems were going to take back the Senate, and gain up to 15 seats on the house......all of it 100% wrong. We still have numerous states classified as "TOO CLOSE TO CALL", the Republicans actually will be the ones gaining seats in the House, and we know they will retain control of the Senate. Are the news organizations, and their pollsters (including FOX News) just incompetent, or is this deliberate? Even FOX News got it completely wrong. I've said for years now that both parties are corrupt. Both parties only care about their power......they do not care about anyone outside the BELTWAY....if you think they do I've got a bridge I would like to sell you. Ironically, the voting base of each party has completely flipped the last 4 years.....the Democrats are now the party of the upper class (or 'protected class' as I call them, consisting of the media elites, Hollywood elites, the rich, the politicians), and the Republicans are now the party of the middle class, and working class. That's my 2¢, and I'm sticking to it.
