Elections- Not Your Typical Post

So here in the US, it's presidential election time and while I could do a post about how important it is to vote, I'm not.  This post is about the importance of getting out and away from those ANNOYING POLITICAL ADS!

Yeah, I said it.  You can't get away from them.  Both sides, giving their points of view.  Are there really people who at this point are undecided?  Or, are these just the attention getters in life.  People who will do anything to be the center of attention and we all suffer for it!  You can't watch a stinking thing on tv without seeing at least 100 political ads and I'm not exaggerating!  Monday night football was like a debate of commercials.  Then the people on the shows and sporting events you are watching to get away from reality, start talking about the election.  Sportscasters and movie stars, we watch you for entertainment (well, sportscasters, we really don't watch you for anything).  Shut up, please!  Let us enjoy the getaway time between the 100 commercials we have to watch.

So, maybe the best thing to do is just get out.  Today the weather in Virginia is cooling off.  How about a hike?  Trout season is back in.  Go fishing, and while you're at it, take a kid with you.  Go see a live sporting event.  It doesn't have to be professional, how about pee-wee football, or a local high school game?  Fall soccer is going on now.  Nothing like seeing a bunch of elementary school youngsters chasing a soccer ball back and forth like a pack of wolves on a rabbit!  Go camping, build a fire in the backyard and roast marshmallows, spend some time together as a family or with friends.  Whatever you do, I'm sure it's going to be better than the political commercials.  Don't even get me started on the phone calls!
