51. finally after 6 months of pretending political
wasnt there. he one side, me the other, we are chatting about an hour on sunday afternoons. he has been raising two boys, because the father has been in prison for alchol related things and a mother that isnt taking care of boys. he is seeing the school system, and what is up. he is listening to his country club old fart golf buddies in the panhandle of texas say shit, and he experiences the other side with the boys. and father. the government

yesterday talking about mayors, state senator and representative, and the vote for dem judge in town, he knwos them all. he said the repug state senator was a good man. told him, you said the same to me when bushie boy ran in 2000, and you were wrong.

this is texas politics.

my dad didnt challenge, grunt, snort..........instead he tried to gain back my respect and in plead said no no really he is a good guy. we had a special election last spring. my husband a business owner had to pratically plead for me to vote repug for him in special election. the other dude was from midland and all the money in town wanted to keep representation here in this area. told dad yesterday, i voted for them, and i hate republicans, looking him right in the eye. i waz kicking and screamin all down the line, no no dont make me vote repug. you all each one owes me big time. was the funniest.
