I Drove Past Sarah Palin Today

First, the Fall Festival was great, although a bit hot.  I was dressed for Fall in Summer weather.  Oh well. At least it did rain.  Also, we picked out a nice pumpkin and picked some apples too.

Anyhow, on our way there, traveling on what could be described as a rural road in Central Pennsylvania, traffic slowed, sirens began blazing, and I kid you not the friggin’ Straight Talk Express came rolling by.  Seriously.  One of McCain’s tour buses drove right past me.  Surreal.  I didn’t even give them the one finger salute (my daughter was in the car).

Anyhow, it turns out Sarah Palin made a surprise stop at the very fruit farm we were driving to.  We must’ve missed them by minutes.  Seriously.  Here’s an article from the local newspaper.

You all know I’m not a big fan of McCain or Palin, but from the pictures in the article it seemed like her visit made a few people’s day.  Good for them.  Happy people is always a good thing in my book. I just wonder what those people in the Secret Service and those big buses were thinking as they drove through the farm country.

Off To The Farm

Well, we have a pretty fun day planned today.  We are heading to a local fruit farm, Way Fruit Farm, for their fall festival.  We are gonna pick up some pumpkins and hopefully do a hay ride. I hope to pick up some fresh apple cider, too.

For those interested, there was a pretty cool video produced by Obama’s campaign to answer the question, “Who is Barack Obama?”.   As with many fathers, this video features his wife and daughters more than Barack himself.  After all, our families are our life.  Anyhow, I thought it was a pretty sweet video.  Again, for those interested in this type of thing.
