Monday Stuff On the Way to Other Stuff: Gray Skies -- and the Election

After weeks and weeks of mostly unseasonably warm weather, we're due for snow. Or rain. Something wet, at least. 
    Not that I'll know until Monday evening -- I'm working for the election Monday and Tuesday. Long hours. Wednesday and Thursday, too...but it will be normal hours then. Names and numbers, names and numbers. Lots of clicking on the computer, double-checking ballot entries. Sigh...
    Since I'll be Otherwise Occupied tomorrow, here's Monday Stuff a bit early.

Remember the guy who disappeared while attending a Denver Broncos game? He turned up a couple of hours south in Pueblo...said he didn't want to watch football anymore, and just started hitchhiking. His family (and the police) finally found him in a K-Mart parking lot. And that's basically all they're saying. See more about it here, including what he told the police. Hey, we don't make this stuff up...

Eggs in Spicy Pepper Sauce, served with a side of bravery. I can't tell you how much I admire this blogger, for her honest, disciplined approach to life. No complaining -- just honesty and great, cheap food, with the promise of splurging more later on. (From Poor Girl Eats Well)

The annual "No More Christmas Crap" campaign. It's been going on for several years now. (From Living on the Cheap)
