Bob's felt better since being off his blood pressure medication. This morning he decided he wanted to walk to an REI store that's a little over a mile from where we live. We walk through a park to get there. I was sure he couldn't do it but figured he'd take the news better if he tried and failed than if I announced he couldn't do it. It's an uphill climb to the entrance of the park about a quarter mile from where we live. He made it to the bench just inside the park and had to admit he couldn't go any further. I left him to continue my walk and picked him up on my way back. He did much better walking down hill coming back.
Even though he didn't accomplish his goal it did get him out of the house. The park was a nice place to sit while I was walking and he got to speak to some nice dogs. He did good.
I worked in a seminary for 17 years, I know that's hard to believe, but I did. The homiletics (preaching) professor told his students they should never go into the pulpit on Sunday mornings without first reading the newspaper.
I think of that these days. First thing I do in the morning is check the news. I'm quite sure Donald Trump talks in his sleep just like he does when he's awake.
It appears the pot is beginning to boil and we may be entering territory new to elections in this country. I'm a belt and suspenders kind of person, I try to be prepared for everything.
It seems to me we're very close now to having a candidate that's lost the endorsement of his party. Have we ever had a rogue, lone ranger, candidate before in an election?
What happens if he wins the popular vote? There's a lot of talk about doing away with the electoral college. This might be an election that shows us just what the electoral college is all about. Are we sure it's antiquated? Are we sure we want to get rid of it?
Interesting stuff and it's happening by the minute. Wonder if Mr. Trump will step off center stage for the Olympics?
