Weather ~ Nancy Me Wine ~ VP Debate ~ A Dog Scorned?

Good 36ยบ clear so far morning. Rain coming, maybe!

OK, today is 10-12-12... so in radio car speak 10-12 means nothing. There is no 10-12 code. :0( but tomorrow 10-13 there is!
Yesterday was a good one. I went to Costco with my pal Nancy Perry. We did our best to $pend money. (Ha, not hard at the Big C!) Some geezer flirted with Nancy... when she threatened (she was being silly and not serious!) to run the slow moving dude over with her cart.... He laughed and said he "wouldn't mind being run over by such a pretty woman"! Yeah Nancy!  Then we went to Olive Garden for a glass of some Sicilian Chardonnay and lunch. Nancy had a salad, soup, and bread sticks. I had a chicken Alfredo pizza. OMGOOD!

George Raft who played gangster parts came in to have suits made and my aunt got scared, thinking he was a real gangster!

The debate last night, again interesting. Funny how the democrats tend to get real angry instead of giving facts, listening, and commenting.
"Most polls and media talking heads gave the advantage in the vice presidential debate to GOP vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan, but said that Vice President Biden also won by reviving Democratic morale following the disastrous Oct. 3 presidential debate.

A quick CNN poll of registered voters said 48 percent thought Ryan was the winner, while 44 percent thought Biden claimed the title. Sixty percent of CNN’s respondents said Ryan was presidential, and 53 percent said he was more likable.
A CNBC poll said that 56 percent thought Ryan was the winner, while 36 declared Biden to be the winner."
