Silly me. I almost wrote "Poems to Vote On". Illegal parking of a preposition. Preposition Police take note. I try not to end with a preposition if I can figure out a way not to. (ha...see I thought that would be funny).. end with one. (there... no preposition)

Slice of Life anyone? It's Day 8. The above is a huge slice of my life right now, as I have voted on all 32 matchups! Wonderful way to spend my day!
But now it is time to just watch the results.
And time for Jello - for which there is always room, right?
Pickles has an accomplice - or friend...
I found this little guy, a soft floppy brown moose, while I was out riding across the countryside with my husband.
He's retired now, too - as of this past December 31 - so we take frequent jaunts to anywhere and everywhere. Unfortunately, the frost is heaving now and country roads can be a little - no, a LOT - bumpy and treacherous. Lumps and bumps, rolls and holes - and all random and unexpected. Spring in the northeast is rough. Can't look at the view too long or a road hazard gets you!
Anyway, we were out riding along avoiding potholes and ski ramps. I'd had just about enough driving. My back and neck were getting sore. When we came up on a crossroads we realized we were in Windsor. And right there was the little general store, Hussey's, where they sell just about everything. Finally a place to stop and reorganize my body! And it's a fun place to boot!
I could have bought a weather vane, a wood stove, a birthday card, a rocking chair, milk, a rifle and a wedding gown. I could have bought a whoopie pie, a fishing pole, and a pair of socks, but I stopped at the moose, Jello and a couple of diet Mountain Dews. Except for selling wedding gowns, it is like a mini Maine Walmart.
