I've got a mid-foot sprain; no fracture, thank goodness, it's just sprained. I spent half a day at the MEA clinic, got x-rays, a boot, and a prescription for Darvoset. I was so relieved to hear there was no broken bone. My left foot found a hole in the yard yesterday while I was walking the dogs. Walking on it today is not nearly as painful as yesterday, but shhhhh! don't tell Mike! He's discovered that he can actually do some chores that heretofore he claimed he couldn't do. You don't think I would milk this, do you? Naaaah!

We finally have renters for the Madison house. Two 20-something year old sisters and their Miniature Schnauzer. Cross your fingers and let's hope they're as dependable as their credit check and references say they are. They move in on the 28th.

Most of the Republicans I know are getting a little nervous with the idea of McCain (and his buddy Phil Gramm) trying to handle something so near and dear to them as Wall Street and the U.S. economy. As he stumbles around in the dark looking for the light switch, their confidence in his ability fades, especially when they realize that their pension plans and Social Security could get flushed down the toilet if his fuzzy thinking is implemented. SOCIAL SECURITY?!? Yep, if it had been privatized, like McCain recommended, we would all be in deep do-do, indeed. I mean, the man said today that the chairman of the Federal Election Commission should step down, based on Wall Street's performance this week. So now we are privatizing profits and socializing losses! I apologize to my grandchildren here and now for the humungous tax bill they will assume. Lord have mercy!

For my Democratic friends who need a reason to smile, check this out.

Cathy, I am so glad your foot is not broken. I broke mine and managed to tear my Lisfranc's tendon two years ago and I'm still not over it. I hope you have a speedy recovery (but go ahead and milk it for all it's worth-- you've earned it). God bless you for renting to people with dogs. I still miss my miniature schnauzer who went to heaven six years ago.
