Never mind politics, or even dinosaurs – it’s vegetables! today. The weather isn’t half bad, so far. This is the exciting one – the June visit, with everything in place. What has come up? What has been eaten by whom?
We won’t be there long – I should blog again on Sunday, maybe even Saturday. But it should be long enough to tidy up and weed and decide what to do about the grass.
There might even be enough lettuce to enhance a sandwich.
As for politics, I could wish last night had been more decisive, that Senator Obama had won both states. Still, this will have to do. I enjoyed it the more for knowing that you might have been there, Mary Lou.
It will be interesting indeed to see who turns up as V.P., Stash haus. Trouble with Mrs Clinton, she’s Old Politics and rather obviates the message of change. Also I gather they don’t like each other much. Also she’d bring Bill along.
I am sorry that we’re hearing so much about sexism as the reason for Mrs Clinton’s failure. I would have thought, personalities apart, that racism was a much higher barrier.
The big breakthrough was surely JFK who proved that the President didn’t have to be a WASP. We were in Northampton, MA, for that election, and I can remember people saying how distasteful it was to vote for an Irish Catholic.
And knitting. I’m not happy with the dinosaur – too many loose-looking stitches where colours are added. I’m about at the point where the legs are being joined together in the body and I may be happier after another inch. I will retreat with relief – if there’s time for any knitting – to the Strathardle Project for the next couple of days, a dusty pink Araucania rugby-shirt sort of sweater for me. A couple of rounds of ribbing were done, months ago.
