Playing board games has always been a favorite pastime of mine. I especially like backgammon, checkers, and Risk. My family often played Monopoly, but we never finished a game. Fun though they were, the games went on and on.
I loved the boy dressed up as a cowboy having roped the man (his father? an uncle? a neighbor?). So I decided to search for children dressed up in some way and I found the photo below of a group of kids dressed up for a mock wedding. It was taken in 1924 and has been saved by Florida Memory.
Several folks in this neighborhood spend a few months in Florida. Several own condos there. Most of these people live here most months and it seems like it’s more than six.
These people are Republicans and they realize Obama is likely to win Illinois. So one spouse, if not both, have registered to vote in Florida.
Florida could be a close race. What they’re doing is legal, but I don’t like gaming the system and I hate how these folks can be sanctimonious about their view of the Right Way to Be American. I doubt Democrats are doing the same, but wonder.
It really isn’t right when it comes to more local races. If I were a Floridian who lived in the state 12 months a year, I wouldn’t want carpet baggers electing judges and state representatives and such. Will these folks just vote for the national offices? If so they’re hurting the local races in Illinois.
