As of yesterday I'm back, but battling the "back from vacation syndrome."
Do you mean my current schedule does not include time watching the waves crash with my feet in the salt water?
That can't be the sound of my alarm--is it really time to wake up?
Where is that phone charger? The kids' Kindle plug?
Maybe you can relate.
No surprise in that I did not finish my Missing Person Monday post.
As such, I'll delve into the disappearance of Vickie Ellington in a few days.
While away, a friend sent me a well-written article about the American Civil War, and a quote grabbed my attention.
Simon Cameron was President Abraham Lincoln's Secretary of War in 1861 and was considered one of America's first political bosses.
If one had political aspirations, Mr. Cameron was a powerful individual who made things happen--interesting that he was orphaned at age 9, had limited schooling, and worked his way to wealth (well working and creating controversy).
Anyway, Cameron had this gem to say about political figures of the 19th century:
"An honest politician is one who, when he is bought, will stay bought."
No matter the time, politicians still make easy targets for humor.
Enjoy your day, and if you see my phone cord laying around, just holler at me.
