It was strangely pleasant packed in that way in this small town, small building. Strangers and neighbors calmly sardined in line to fulfill a civic duty.
When the election results came in, Trump won. "That's not fair! He didn't win the popular vote!" Must we review the electoral system for whiny disappointed voters every time they lose?
Now it's time to be sure the PRIVATE PROPERTY, NO HUNTING, KEEP OUT signs are in place. Deer hunters are making ready. When Mabel was alive I used to worry that some over enthusiastic hunter would mistake her for a deer.
I have no delusions that I can protect the deer around here but I sure don't want some lout tromping around my back yard- that includes the neighbors with whom we share a tree line.
One particularly unpleasant tree line neighbor believes that if you fire a gun close to the start of deer season, it will spook the deer. Yeah. Sure. The deer who live around here hear gunfire everyday. Of course they will be spooked by gunfire in November.
Never argue with a crazy person. Our guns are silent.
