The Land Of -- Oz??

Well, I made it. To the land of "I Pray" license plates, John McCain mailings laying out on the kitchen counter, little fish on the back of many cars, giant SUVs and pickups everywhere, Wal Mart mommies and daddys with their little cute sayings on the back of the sedans, new construction of a JC Penney store, traffic so bad I can't begin to describe it, and every single Republic yard sign you can imagine. I feel so at home, warm and cozy. Now, where is my Obama-Biden kit? Pray for me, would you please......I need it.

And thanks to those of you who text messaged and called me on my journey today. It was a fantastic day for travel.

It's an alternate universe. You will soon wake up and realize it was only a nightmare.

Click your heels together 3 times, but make sure no one notices you're wearing ruby slippers.

Owh boy! It reminds me of going back to my hometown of 734 people. (where my parents still live, both republicans, etc...) But, hey, how many cities can you actually know the EXACT population of?
