I woke up very early yesterday morning so I went out on the balcony with my coffee to sit and wake up a bit. I could hear a coyote howling -- what an eerie sound when everything else was so quiet.

We enjoy participating.
OLLI.......... if you're going to attend....... please spell it correctly.

Default Lol

Thanks for the spelling correction. My spellchecker liked Ollie better --but why the smirk. Pretty judgemental.

I don't 'get' how people can STILL be "undecided" about who they are voting for. It's not like they haven't had nearly two years to figure it out. Personally I see a LOT of voter apathy around here. So many people I know don't pay one bit of attention to politics and couldn't care less. Especially the younger ones. They say they are more concerned with their "daily lives and surviving" so don't pay attention. You'd think they would be the ones MOST concerned. The other day on break at work I asked the group that was at the break table...about 7 of us...how many would be voting. Only me! They were all from mid 20s to mid 40s and not voting!

AZ too but I haven't received my ballot yet. I did get my book with all the candidates in it yesterday. I need to read up on some of the local folks running for office. My grandson's FIL is running for office this year and he'd be a really good choice.

I hear them every night here. One was in my back yard early one morning eating a prairie dog. I like hearing them howl and yelp.

When I was a little kid living here we used to hear coyotes ALL the time but, of course it was a WAY smaller town and more empty land than now. I always liked listening to them. I like to listen to wolves howling too. A coyote got one my cats one time and I, pretty much, hated them for a long time after that but I got over it. I still like to listen to their howling and yelping.

LOL. Even my 90 year old father who is more than slightly forgetful is planning on voting for "the Democrat" even if he cannot remember her name. I honestly don't know of anyone who is not intending to vote.
