Speaking Out for Louisiana Citizens

THE ELECTION

Sabine Parish stood tall for Donald Trump in the presidential race. Trump received 83% of the vote or 8,766 votes vs. Biden at 16% and 1,731 votes in this parish. More than 70 million American citizens voted for Trump, the most in history, except for Joe Biden. He got 4 million more. At least that is what the “unofficial” popular vote tally is at this point. We have all heard that some of those votes may be bogus and it may be proved otherwise later on. This impressive number of votes President Trump is that he received more votes than Barack Obama, Bill Clinton or Warren Harding ever received. Why was he so validated?

Patchwork

Hubby-dear and I have been traveling a lot lately…either in my new car or in the motor home.

Many times, I take a book and read as we travel the highways and byways. Other times, I just look at the window looking at the scenery. A recent drive to north Arkansas to see our grandkids had me looking for foliage…..red and orange leaves to be exact. I was disappointed…I guess we were too early.

I did enjoy the Halloween decorations, though. I even had Hubby-dear stop and let me take a photo of a 12’ tall skeleton. Possibly a relative of Dean’s Elmer?

Sometimes, I doze off…if I am extremely tired. However, I don’t like to sleep when I should be helping drive…by talking or listening to the radio.

In recent months, I’ve decided I love to singalong with Sirius Radio. I leave my dial on 60’s on 6 all the time. I love to listen to all the oldies that I loves in high school!!
