A fabulous weekend

Do I adore this man? You betcha.

The only downside was that we couldn’t spend more time catching up on the last two decades. I’ve made so much music with this guy over the years, it could fill a garage. In the 6 or so hours we spent just yapping about life in general, our spouses, kids, dreams, disappointments and victories, never once did I think we were starting over. We just picked up where we left off.

Sometimes, everything just works. This was one of those times. BoomR, it was like ye never left! I heart you!

Fink out.

    I HEART U2!! :-)

    …and DITTO to everything that you said, you little rat fink-o-mine! :-)

    On another note, I’m still reeling from seeing your #1 son towering over me with a furry face, talking music, computer techno, and cell phone smack with me like a big dog!! Y’all did a beautiful thing there (Sorry, Lars – missed seeing you! Hope you’re having a safe trip!)

    Wasn’t it just yesterday that we were having to stick M&M’s in #1’s belly-button so he’d lift his tushie up while trying to dig the M&M out & you could slip the new diaper on? I don’t care what you say – I’M NOT GETTING OLD!!!

    Back in the Big D but missing you like crazy!
    ((HUGGERS))

    And you, as usual, are a BAD BOY! :-) Good to see you back here. I was going to comment over at your blog about what you think the realistic figures are of people whose vote could be swayed. I mean…the people with Obama/McCain posters and signs all over their yards…no minds are going to be changed.

    Someone came to my door for Obama a week ago. She began by asking me what issue in America concerned me a great deal. I said education. She cut me off, first by saying, “Yes, I totally agree…” but then she wouldn’t let me say anything else. Couldn’t get a word in edgewise. She launched into her droid speech. And I’m sure McCain canvassers do the same thing. Anyway, I thought later, “What if I’d tried to change her mind or presented a different view?” Not happening. Not on either side.

    So back to my original question: how many voters could be swayed to the other side, or coaxed out of “undecided” status in your opinion?

    This isn’t a political space (that’s reserved for your side of the computer), but I admit I am curious about how many people actually jump ship because of rhetoric.

    Kinda hot Fink

    Why yes, I am bad . . . you have no idea . . . but in a good way. Email me sometime and we can discuss it. :P

    I don’t know how many people can be swayed. I do have my own anecdotal story that might give you a clue though.

    When Bill Clinton was running against Bush Sr. I couldn’t make up my mind who I wanted to vote for. I was still in the Air Force so my heart, and most of my opinions, were with Bush since he was the VP for my hero, Reagan, but something about Clinton appealed to me. I bounced back and forth a dozen times during the campaign and was still not sure when I literally walked into the voting booth. I remember looking at the two severs – one by Bush’s name and the other by Clinton’s – and finally after what seemed like forever, I flipped the Bush lever. My reasoning? I liked Clinton, but I just didn’t think he was ready. Bush was a known quantity.

    The moral or point of this story is that I think there are still plenty of people who are undecided. Who are attracted to Barry in the way I was attracted to Bill, but when push comes to shove will go with someone they know better. And in this case that person is McCain.

    That said, I voted for Clinton the next time. Pre-Monica. I still wish I could take that one back.
