..... at the grocery store.. my wife forgot pineapple so I had to go and get it. The Mayor of the city I just moved in to who I know only by seeing his picture was checking and we started a conversation as he finished up he said "you have a happy thanksgiving" I returned the greeting saying YES I am thankful and in all due reality with the outcome nationally you probably are to...
He winked and said for the most part yes..
The community is depressed by conservative politics as the city council is all red and I am thinking of running as a progressive Democrat with the platform of finding new industry... The town lost its timber industry and the farmers are tearing up their fields to plant grapes which will take several years to reap a profit. There are several abandoned buildings that could be transitioned in to lite manufacturing or even a call center..... The council has no policy to regrow the city which is about 7000pop.
Anyhow I hope this finds you all thankful this day.
