Pumpkin

On Saturday we went to the Western Train Museum’s Pumpkin Patch Festival.  You will recall that we had gone on the train a few weeks ago: http://theblogofteresa.com/trains/ . During that ride they let us know about this festival.  It was a short train ride and it was packed full of people and excited kids.

Politicians Say The Dumbest Things

Politicians

Last night we had the presidential debate.   I am not fond of Politicians,yet, I did watch it all. There are no winners in these things.  In this particular election it seems to be pretty juvenile and petty, with lots of name calling, maintaining positions even if they are wrong, lying through their teeth and of course the ol’ “you…
