The Weekend

Praise be, the weekend is here, at least it is after lunch. El Jefe is loading up the whole royal court -- the elite gumba guards, the secret police, the diplomatic corps, the wife, the mistress, the prelates of the State Church; plus the the card-sharps, media people, and bingo operators (yes, all the Great and Good), and their little cats too -- plus El Jefe's books, papers and lists of naughty, nice and subversive. Yes, El Jefe is leaving his capital, and cruising to the country palace in the provinces, for a quick little pre-Christmas trip, just as fast as he can manage it.
Looks like the Republican presidential contest can no longer be ignored. I think I'm going to have to make my choice, and select my favored candidate, soon. I'll vote for whoever they put up, of course, but I need to focus on a preference. Hopefully, will manage that this weekend.

Ok so it's Wednesday and still not a peep. I breathlessly await your choice. I think I've made up my mind although I'm not sure he's electable.

I've made up my mind too, but it's been a looong weekend,and is a long day back at work, and I haven't put pen to paper yet -- or electrons to whatever they go to -- but I'll be there soon enough.

And I'm not sure mine can get elected either.
