Wednesday Afternoon Thoughts

I'm at work. I've been under the weather the past few days, but feel better now. I'm putting throat drops in my mouth like they're candy though.

I was at the Mississippi Library Association conference in Vicksburg earlier today. There were a couple of sessions I wanted to attend. Sadly, I couldn't stick around and have tea with Marshall Ramsey. I had a couple projects to do here at the college.

I'll be leaving work for the day soon and will be attending a play later this evening. I'm not planning on doing too much though since I'll be heading back to Vicksburg tomorrow morning to attend a few more sessions. That's the thing about having a conference not far from where you live and work: You can't get away. On the other hand, you're not nearly as far behind as you would be if you could get away.

One note: A few weeks ago, I blogged about Supermom's nomination for worst campaign sign. Yesterday, I was perusing Cotton Mouth where reference was made to Will Bardwell's nomination for best political sign.

I second that nomination. I've seen Dykes's signs when I've traveled up and down Highway 49, but I've not seen that one. I feel almost disappointed.

Yep,

One thing I'll miss is these handmade signs. They had character. Plus, candidates wouldn't distribute as many if they had to make them, themselves.

Heh. I remember when my father ran against Johnny Stringer for state representative back in 1983. Stringer had a lot of handmade signs, so many in fact, I think fire marshals would have been required to oversee their disposal.
