Hello everybody. Well, I'm back. I'd like to say, "I'M BACK!" but that would be greatly overstating
my situation so it's just, "I'm back" and muddling through.
Something else going on locally that's kind of interesting is the run in 2018 attempts to recall three
state senators. Personally, I think there are lame attempt by the Republicans to regain control of the senate.
Doesn't that sound good? To rise above party labels to be an independent voice? Unfortunately, as is
almost always the case with politicians it's what they don't say that makes all the difference. She did not say she
would caucus with the Democrats (party labels?) or that she would support their agenda throughout the session. She
also did not say she would allow the Democratic leadership to use her status as an Independent to break the 6-6 balance
of power on the Legislative Commission turning it into a Democratic (party label?) panel for the first time in its history.
I'm sure you heard about Mavis Wanczyk the 53-year-old hospital worker who hit the $758.7 million lottery
jackpot. I heard her on the radio and she seemed pretty cool. When asked why she came public so soon her reply was, "I
want to get this over with. "What's she going to do next since she already quit her job? "I'm going home, climb into bed
and put the covers over my head." Considering what's coming at her that may very well be the best course of action she
can take for now.
From a new life just starting to one wrapping up I saw an Obit about Jeffrey Riegel a longsuffering fan of the Philadelphia Eagles football team. In his obit he asked, "to have eight Philadelphia Eagles as pall bearers so the Eagles can let him down one more time." The article said a team spokesman declined to comment about his request. Looks like either way the Eagles really are going to let him down one last time.
Hope you all had a good summer and if the heat started to get to you that you looked around the country and asked yourself
where else you would want to live.
