Aunt Olla recovers from the election

Talked to Aunt Olla on the phone tonight. She voted absentee. "Gosh, I am glad I lived this long!" she said, in a matter-of-fact tone.

She watched the returns until eight o'clock last night, but then got disgusted. "Those dumb states were going Republican," she said, "you know, the hillbilly states."

I guess Aunt Olla has no political ambitions. One of the luxuries of being 97 years old is that you can speak your mind without repercussions.

So, she went to bed, but got up and watched all day today. She has decided that after this election, she is going to take it easy until the year's end. I doubt it.
