shoo - ga - GOCK - a - ler

Spent the weekend in NYC--stayed with Max while Brian and Lauren had some time alone to celebrate their 5th wedding anniversary. Here's a picture of Max demonstrating one of his Tinkertoy creations, a shoogagockaler.

It's fun being grandparents!

As most of you know, Sue is the Supervisor of the Checklist for the Town of Sharon -- she and her assistants are responsible for all voting records, checking voters in/out, etc. And, as a Selectman, I usually help count the votes when the polls close. Yesterday was pretty busy for our little town.

First, keep in mind that the current population is 372. Going into the election, 282 people were registered to vote, already a pretty high percentage. But, because NH has same-day registration, Sue processed 25 new voters bringing the total number of registered voters to 307. Yesterday, a total of 258 people cast ballots -- 85% of the registered voters and 70% of the population of the town. Pretty impressive, I think.

Oh, yes, the vote:
Obama - 165
McCain - 91

The Amazing Spider Man

Spider Man, Spider Man,
Does whatever a Spider can.
Spins a web pheew, pheew, pheew!
Trick-or-Treats like a pro,
Rock on!  Look at this Spider Man!

Pheew!  That's the sound of webslinging.  And this is what it looks like.

In the crowded Metropolis, sometimes you have to wait for the elevator.

All the webslinging pays off!  Oh man look at that pile of candy!
