I’m happy the election is over for many reasons. Maybe you, too, can share in some of the joy:
1. My phone has stopped ringing throughout the afternoon from countless political solicitations. The quiet is rather nice.
2. My mailbox is no longer stuffed with carcasses of countless trees telling me who I should vote for and what I should vote for usually with little explanation of either. There was one gal who was running for a local office who sent so much junk mail that I refused to vote for her. Long live the trees.
