I usually do early voting to avoid crowds and to get it out of the way. However, since I wasn't feeling up to par last week...I did not make the trip to the County Courthouse to take advantage of it. Unlike Harris County (Houston) there really are no long lines in Del Rio plus the voting place is closer to mom's house. Just one of the pluses of living in a small town.
Being the procrastinator that I am, I waited until the last minute to research the local candidates. My gosh I never imagined all the goings on behind the scenes. One candidate and his son getting into a physical confrontation with another candidate at a local bar. Another candidate stealing the campaign signs of yet another contender. All this going on in Del Rio...isn't the internet wonderful?
On my way back home, I was going to stop at the laundromat. There were more people washing clothes than voting! Since I do not do crowds...the clothes will have wait for another opportunity.
I don't know if Frann still reads me but I thought of her today when I saw Kinky Friedman on the ballot. Who knew he was running for Texas Agricultural Commissioner? OK, enough about politics!
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
