Sunday, 8:30 AM. 31 degrees F at the ferry dock, 28 on the back porch. Wind SSW, calm with light to moderate gusts. The sky is overcast and cloudy, the humidity 93%. The barometer is at 29.57"and momentarily steady. It is beginning to snow again.
We had a surprise visit from a niece and her friend yesterday and we went to Maggie's for dinner. Joan and I hadn't been there in a long while and we had really good burgers with all the trimmings. The iconic eatery is a must for visitors, and is often the only restaurant open in the winter.
Joan and I watched the Republican debates again last night. We are all debated out, having watched the debates of both parties. My succinct impressions of the candidates:
Trump: capable but crude. Would drop the F bomb on Putin, get a missile in return.
Cruz: great debater, but a right-wing sourpuss.
Rubio: inexperienced but silver-tounged (a Republican rendition of Obama).
Carson: Could make a fortune performing brain transplants on politicians.
Christie: aggressive, and smart about everything except closing the George Washington Bridge.
Bush: Barbara would get my vote.
Kasich: saved Ohio, could save the country.
Fiorina: the country's evidently not ready for a woman candidate smarter than the men.
Clinton: "What difference does it make now?" Not much, she's through.
Sanders: It's a good thing high school sophomores can't vote.
Biden: "He's too old to cut the mustard any more."
There you have it. I don't answer polls.
