it's been my practice not to post an address. But I am West of the Missouri river and East of the Rockies. In a sort of motly flat place. The Dakotas, Nebraska, Kansas and Oklahoma belt, where I just draw the Missouri line N and South, ignoring its top end going West.

My state's voters have been Republican for a long time. The usual reasons, but also because most of them are penny pinchers. Schools and roads and flood control do get money. My county is liberal as we have a university.

Thanks. Yes, I understand. I wasn’t expecting you to pinpoint an exact location. I don’t like getting too specific with information like that online either. I usually just say I’m from Northern California or the Sacramento area although if you’ve seen my posts over the years and especially recently you can get a pretty good idea.

Well they are all the same, these liberal havens in the Midwest. Madison WI notched a bit more left than us after Trump election. I lived there too, 5 years.

I moved. And bought a stereo.

It came with speakers.

And a turntable.
(You already know what they look like)

I spent much of last night and yesterday testing it out.

I had a tiny roof leak. Sloppy roofers 3 years ago did not seal the vents and pipes going thru the roof properly. I had a different roofer redo those. Now it is finally raining enough so I can check. Going into the attic space is an adventure in itself. I use a head light.

Been one of the craziest 2 weeks of my life. Long story short, Dad passed away unexpectedly on June 23rd at only 60 years old, this is the last of my immediate family, being an only child and Mom having been gone for nearly 20 years. This led to an impromptu trip back to my home town deep in the midwest, that I have not been to in many years. On the way there we ran into a 10-hour layover flying out of Denver, after taking the red-eye out of Portland. After arriving at our destination we got to deal with relatives who were mildly pleasant at best, and less than sympathetic (save one aunt who was quite helpful). We then proceeded to drive just shy of 2000 miles in a 15' Uhaul truck with as many of my father's possessions as could fit and 2 non-traveling cats. Neither of us are very experienced long-distance drivers. Well, after a few tears, a few scratches, and lots of gas money, we have made it back home safe and sound. Hard to believe at this time last year we were hurriedly trying to get things finished for our wedding, and now we're trying to recover from a funeral. Sometimes life is just unreal.
