8 votes

January 4, 2012

The Iowa Caucus came down to eight votes. Romney squeaked out the win over Santorum when eight old, pale, people out here in methland decided to leave their beds where they are waiting to die and drive to the grain elevator to cast a ballot.

I’m kidding. But not about the 8-vote margin. Wow.

Meanwhile, the Freese Family caucused last night at Skip’s restaurant on the south side of Des Moines. We missed New Year’s Eve and Day with Bob in the hospital with cellulitis, so the heck with the political process. Let eight other people decide.

Nowlan and Warren head back to college tomorrow. It was such a blessing to have them home the past week, doing sheep chores and keeping us laughing.

The kids did some shopping at their favorite t-shirt store last week and ended up on the NBC news program Rock Center with Brian Williams. Check it out about two-thirds of the way through this video: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540/vp/45852078#null

Good luck to all the politicians from the few, the proud, the Iowans.

(Here are Caroline, Nowlan, and Warren at Skip’s last night. Caroline got a hair crimper for Christmas….)
