Last Post for a While

Over the last several years (since my heart attack), I have grown more and more disenchanted with the political environment.  For me, most Republican politicians are like most Democrat politicians:  they just want to accumulate power for the party and keep their offices.  Some bright lights are out there, but the Republican establishment and the Democrat establishment are pretty much alike.
So much so, that large numbers of voters didn’t even bother in the last election.  Some voters opted for a third party candidate and therefore kept votes away from the supposed conservative choice in the election.  I tried blogging about things I found funny (as in humorous, not strange), but had not much content.
So, I am changing venues and starting a new blog about positive living.  I’m frankly tired of the negativity surrounding the political scene.  So in an effort to be more positive I am blogging about Forward Living with Pops and Pat.
The rest of this article will be all the reasons I love Barack Obama.

Hip Hip Hooray

Wow.  Has it really been over a year since I said I would post more?
I have a new hip now, courtesy of Southern Orthopedics and Dr Roland Hester.  Great job by the surgical team.
I had been in a good deal of pain before the surgery and I had pain after the surgery, but it was dramatically less than before.  I used to take nearly a minute to get out of a chair or sit down.  (Really!)  Now I can pop up and down like a jack-in-the-box.
My mobility is improving daily, thanks to the surgery and some exercises learned at Rehab Select.
Enough about me.  I will pontificate at some later time.  Cheers.
