I’m not political. H is. He’s been glued to the television set throughout this long election ordeal, seldom coming up for air.
The Trump/Hillary situation takes top priority around the country but then there’s also the local or not-so-local situations to consider.
H is taking politicing a step further, since his retirement from teaching, and is out there in the mainstream with the best of them for Walton County, Florida. That stand in itself, says more than you’d think.
He’s retired from teaching in Walton County and we live in Okaloosa County – meaning we can’t vote in Walton County. That doesn’t stop him and he’s off to hand out brochures, put out signs, and talk up his candidate of choice, whether he can cast his vote or not, dragging me along behind him.
And I use drag lightly because like I said, I’m not very political and usually keep my ideas on the subject to myself, not voicing my opinion, especially to strangers.
Today we stumbled upon a first as H was combing the streets for Walton County residents, in need of having their ear turned to help them in their voting decision, on the right candidate for Walton County Schools superintendent.
Now we’ve come across a lot of excuses for not voting in this election, and some are completely legitimate – don’t live in the County , convicted felons can’t vote, and not registered. Then H starts up a conversation with this nice lady but she doesn’t vote because of biblical reasons.
Hmmm? I’ve never heard this one before but I bet some of you have…
