No politics today

This is one of those rare days when I don't have a lot of things to take care of.

So, instead of spending the free time on a blog post about global warming, Obama v. McCain, drilling in America as a solution to our dependence on foreign oil, the 'crisis' in the auto industry (every other economic down is a crisis, so why can't this be one as well?), or the latest idiotic thing our mayor has done (and there's soooo much to choose from in that topic), I'm going out to work in the garden and the yard.

Some days, getting your hands dirty with good soil, breathing in the scent of flowers, letting the wind cool your brow as it blows across the sweat, and then looking back with satisfaction at the accomplishment of your hard work is the best thing for a mind inundated with 'stuck on stupid' actions of politicians.

So that's what I'm going to do. But I'll be back tomorrow with my usual commentary ...

Maggie,

I didn't read this until Tuesday or I would have warned you. Not against the gardening, but against the politics. You get your hands dirty either way, and the smell away from the garden isn't nearly as sweet.

Sorry, I will try and keep up better next time.
