       November is here finally, I am glad for several reasons.  One, the election will be over and things will attempt to settle in the political world.  It will be traumatic for a time; no matter who wins, i am sure.

       Today the sun is shinning and green grass is showing in little peek-a-boo spots.  For the last week…we have had blizzards twice and freezing rain…and a variety of other weather patterns.  But, i must admit…seeing the sun showing it sunny face is a definate mood lifter.

        My son asked if it was Spring today.  Sadly, no it is not…but…still…it is a nice thought.
