    phone must be broke...

    It stopped ringing last night around 7:00 pm...
    And now, I'm emptying out my caller ID logs...

    "Silence is golden, golden."


    Ahhhhh, that's better...

    S'pose it'll start up again in about a week, for the next one.

    Yup, and not a peep out of the Mittster and his family in my inbox after weeks of four and five emails per day.

    I'll be glad to not receive 5-8 calls per day from the MI GOP, 1-2 from the NRA and 2-3 "personal messages" from a candidate's robot call machine.

    Never got a single call from a Dem.

    I knew something was wrong! I've been sitting here all morning and something just didn't seem right! I couldn't figure out what it was. Then I saw this post and it dawned on me! The phone hasn't been ringing constantly and I haven't seen one political ad on TV!

    When I moved to Fl. back in 1982 I registered NPA. Needless to say I turned the phone ringer off some time ago!

    Got home a little while ago. Phone's not ringing and there are no messages on the machine. I cannot bear to turn on the TV. Peace & Quiet! for a while . . .
    I know Whose I am. I know where I'm going. I know the job I'm to do while I'm here. I am an ambassador. This is not my home.

    Evil prospers when good people to do nothing. Please don't turn your back. ACT!

    I don't know. I thought I was special when Clint Eastwood and Pat Boone called.

    My cell is prepaid too, but I still got political texts. Not even sure how they got my number...

    No land line , no TV and cell phone only so no one bothered me.
