I have been trying to figure out a post that could combine Election day with the road construction my entire town is under this fall.
I was trying to come up with something clever.
For example, I am sick and tired of political commercials as much as I am sick and tired of a 10 ton bulldozer rumbling down the street in front of my house every morning at 7am.
Or, the pot holes we are left with in the road are as big as the lies all the candidates seem to be telling.
Or, maybe if we had a good rain, the mud slinging in the roads would be as significant as the mud slinging on tv.
Or, driving through the detours is like shuffling through the political post cards to find the significant mail.
Or, the combined hot air that the machines blow every day is equal to the hot air I hear from political rallies and press releases.
Or, the red, white and blue from the candidates is as prominent in my mind as all the yellow from the tractors, bulldozers and diggers.
But no idea on it's own seemed to be worthy of a full post.
At least I know that the election commercials, mailings and signs will be done with today(until next year). The road construction? Well I also know when that will be done: the week before Memorial Day when the tourists come back to town.
