What a weekend! First I headed for the Frye festival. Don’t let the name fool you. I was not at an all you can eat buffet. The Frye
festival is a congregation of writers and the general public for
readings, classes and all kinds of great stuff. I was lucky enough to
take in a couple of workshops and meet some people like myself, which is great cause we can’t all be crazy. Right?
Next I headed to the University of Moncton for the Pepsi Challenge Volleyball tournament. Fourty four teams entered from all over the maritimes and the winner was my daughter’s team! Yahoo! The girls are from l’ecole Soleil Levant in Aldouane New Brunswick. The competition was fierce and every game was close. I am so proud. Congratulations girls!
Now onto new business. Today is the federal election. The screwballs are done pretending they can relate to regular folks. They’re finished showing up at places of business where they don’t have a clue of what’s going on. No more speeches filled with promises that would make Pinochio’s nose stick out like a pool cue. Now it’s in our hands.
I’d like to encourage everyone to go out and vote. It doesn’t matter for who, just do it. Most of the time they do what they please with our money whether we like it or not. This is our only chance to have a say in who gets to do what. So get out there and cast your ballot. And even if the person you picked doesn’t get elected, at least you can take pride in knowing you’ve been a part of the process. If you don’t feel like voting, think of all the people in the world who would die to have the chance to do so. That alone should be reason enough. See you at the ballot box. And with any luck, I should have a whole slew of new electees to pick on come tomorrow…
