The wife and kids are gone to visit grandparents and I was looking forward to just a little of Netflix and chill last night, but that didn’t happen. The new neighbors are a bit up there in age and I notice one of them trying to sweep a large pile of leaves, so I thought I’d go over, introduce myself, and help out with my leaf blower. I didn’t get started with the leaf blowing until three hours later, they are quite the talkers and every time I thought I had a chance to end the conversation, something new popped up. It’s hard when they start pouring their heart out when they just placed a child in rehab among other things. And then they started to tell me all about their ancestry which includes a parent of George Washington and how they are a cousin of an Oscar-nominated actor. Oh, and then they busted out the pictures. They are certainly nice, but they also have the gift of gab.
A bipartisan pair of members of Congress set off on a road trip from San Antonio, Texas Tuesday, heading toward Washington, D.C. after they both realized their flights were canceled due to the East Coast snowstorm. Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-Texas, who represents El Paso, happened to be at an event in San Antonio Monday with Rep. Will Hurd, R-Texas, and they decided to rent a car together and hold a live Facebook town hall during their roadtrip.
I want to see the next two presidential candidates take at least an eight-hour roadtrip and for it to be broadcast.
