Not That It Did Any Good, But....

It's been a crazy week. Collin had to go back to the orthopedist yesterday--a morning appointment--but he was determined to vote, so we did--before his appointment. This is the first time I've gone to a polling place at 6:30 in the morning. These days, I don't even get out of bed that early!

Good news at the doctor's office--Collin's stress fracture is at least 90% healed. He can't go back to work yet--not until after he sees the doctor again in two weeks and gets the all clear--but he can go out and walk around. We're no longer housebound!

Well, except for Wednesday. We had a package coming and had to wait for it because if we don't, it might not be here by the time we get home. Saturday, we have the monthly writers group meeting. So today's post will be another image blog to poke a bit of fun at the Missouri primary and its dismal outcome....

    1. He's not dealing with it well. He's 37 and this is the first time he's had anything worse than a cold or upset stomach. He was really depressed for a while.

  3. I have to agree with Mark. These voters look a bit suspicious to me. Are you sure they're registered voters?

    1. Hey, we live in a country where some votes come straight from the cemeteries. Elections have been decided by the zombie vote! (But then, does the law say you have to be a live citizen?)

    2. I heard Illinois was expecting a high graveyard turnout!

    3. Well, what else is there for dead people to do during a Midwest winter?

  4. The old slogan - 'Vote early and often' - came to mind.

    Why? I was wondering if the voting badge had been transferred from plush toy to plush toy for the photos! With a brain like mine, you get what you get.

    1. It must be catching. Bob Crowe's wife Carolyn is now sporting an orthopedic boot and a cane for a stress fracture in her ankle.

  6. Good about Collin!

    I suspect Minions would no doubt have write-ins voting for Loki.

    1. The Minions voted for Loki--repeatedly!

      Rocket, of course, voted for himself.

  7. Great news about Collin !

    hahahahahahahaha you should see the voters here. They speak no English not a word but can vote !
    I thought to be an immigrant who became an American citizen who had to speak and understand English ? How can you live your life in "your adopted country" and not speak the language ?
    I vote by early mail-in but I know my vote will not matter.
    You should also see the slanted TV ads that Hillary is running here. All hispanic all the time.
    Again I vote against someone and not for someone. What is wrong here ?

    But on a much better note... love the voters in your state.
    cheers, parsnip

    1. Actually, America has never declared an official language, so maybe they don't have to. Don't get me wrong: I think they should. We could end up with a country where the dominate language in one area is a completely different language, and people there could even start agitating for separation!

    2. We have a lot of cute voters, but given the outcome of the primary here, also too many voters who aren't very bright. The Antichrist and Eva Peron won....

    3. Mark, where I live they go to school but have very little English, they go home where it is Spanish 24 hours a day. Even on TV. Much like their They drop out of school at 15 because that is when their families stop school in Mexico. Representive Raulo Giveria always make excuses it is everyone's fault but the parents, that these children will not succeed in school, life and find jobs but will always vote (anchor babies) for the Democrates, my party, who like to hand out money to them. Never ending circle of illiterate poverty. In 10 or 15 years Arizona will be a welfare state. When all of us older taxpayers die.
      Not at all like my Polish (legal) immigrant grandparents. Everyone still spoke Polish but they learned English and did fabulous in the work force.
      What I didn't understand when I when to register for SS everyone spoke Spanish in the waiting area but about a third of us. Even the Asians spoke English. It was like I was living in Mexico.

    4. I don't disagree ... there was a time when immigrants were very insistent that their children learn English, and I'm all for that. Still, as long as they come here legally, I think Minions could someday be the cornerstone of our country.

    5. Minions will end up taking over the country, God help us!

  8. 90 percent. Cool beans. Here's to him reaching 100 percent!

    1. I'll be glad when he does. He's been so depressed, I worry about him.

    2. Does he have cabin fever, too? I can understand you being worried about him.

      Hoping things heal all the way soon. Wishing you guys the best, plus a little extra more.

  9. Glad to hear Collin's almost well! Bet you're glad, too!

    Yes, these people do look like illegal voters to me. But if they have IDs...

    1. It is not that they look illegal but I wonder how they can be a legal voter, speak no English and need a Spanish ballot ?
      And we are not allowed to ask for any information but an address ? Sounds like the stunt Bubba Bill Clinton and Loretta Sanchez that they pulled off in Orange County, California.

    2. Minions like to mess with the ballot box!

  10. Tell Colin he is fortunate that that is all he has ever had. That bit of advice won't get far with him, will it. As for the primaries, I have given up all hope for the American people. At least your voters are no worse than the real ones.

    1. He had a broken collarbone when he was 3. I was in the hospital for eye surgery. Mom and Dad were taking care of Collin, and they were also raising my two idiot second cousins. One of them didn't make sure the basement door was closed, Collin ran into it and fell down the stairs. The idiot is lucky I didn't kill her.

      These guys, it turns out, are better than most of the voters in Missouri. Trump and Hillary? The Antichrist and Eva Peron? Seriously?

  11. Glad to hear Collin is feeling better and you should dispatch several thousand minion to save this election!

    1. If only the Minions could save this joke of an election!

      There was an interview with a group of voters on CBS Sunday Morning last Sunday. None of them liked the alleged frontrunners. One man said, "This is the greatest country in the world, and the best we get is choosing between the lesser of two evils?"

      Collin's getting around much better, thanks.
