Boys and their flags. Have you voted?

Hi, friends and readers:

Today is Election Day 2018, and it’s incredibly important that people who find the Trump presidency disturbing get out and vote more Democrats into Congress, as a check against the nut case in the White House. I don’t normally inject politics into this website, but I’m making an exception today because I am so concerned about the direction Trump has taken the country in the past two years. So, get out and vote, please.

By the way, have a look at Mr. Shirtless to the left here. An American flag never looked so good, eh?

Well, I spent a quiet evening at home last night, watching a little TV and doing some reading. I spent some time on my back screened porch, listening to my patio fountain gurgle and savoring a glass of wine. Then I went to bed and read fr a half-hour before going to sleep.

This morning I had a dental appointment for preparation of a new crown to replace the one that broke while I was in Toronto back in October. I must have been in the chair for 45 minutes, but at least it’s done and I’ll have a temporary crown in my mouth until the 27th, when they’ll install the permanent one. What fun ….

The fun continues this afternoon when I visit my primary care doctor for my semi-annual checkup. He’ll go over my lab results from the blood I had drawn last month, and hopefully everything will be okay. Then I’ll head back home to take a two-mile run, here on the island.

I voted on my way home from the dentist and my poling place was the busiest I have ever seen it, and I’ve been voting there for 14 years. I think something major is afoot. Have a nice Tuesday, friends.
