I think he went on to become a lawyer somewhere. I think the last time I even heard his name was about 40 years ago.
If you want to know what the folks in West Seattle who did not turn over and go back to sleep did today... they went to the pool. Holy crowded lanes, batman! It was wild. Mostly people I'd never seen before. I got there just as they opened so I snagged my half lane and so got in a nice, stress free swim.
I am, like everyone else, very weary of this election. And, while I'd love to see a woman elected president of the United States, I really don't care. I really don't have a dog in the race. I'm only going to live another decade, if that and I can't see even the worst decision impacting my life too substantially one way or another in that amount of time. I have no kids or grandkids to worry about. I'm not charitable enough to care for the rest of humanity.
ON the other hand, although it was not easy, we did survive Reagan. I remember so clearly the days before he was elected the first time. "no fucking way will this country elect a stupid divorced actor for president of the fucking united states!!!" And, then, 4 years later, "OMG, with 4 more years, he will fucking destroy us! Why doesn't everyone see this??"
We lived. So I think I'm just going to stick my head in the sand at least until Wednesday.
I got a new kind of felt to try out - doll hair and trim - and the new fabric that came in yesterday so I think I'll be heading to the sewing room here shortly. I should change the sheets on my bed - maybe I'll do that first.
