At least it is in the Deep South. I was dashing round getting ready to see the dentist for a minor problem and caught the word "waterspout" on the noon weather. I looked out the window and saw some black clouds, so I hurried a bit, hoping I could get to the dentist before the heavy rain got there.

I didn't quite make it. By the time I got the umbrella up the front of my slacks was somewhat soggy. But, it dried quickly. And by the time I finished with the dentist the rain had quit. After eating lunch and doing some reading, I headed on home and there was almost no sign of the the noonish downpour. Typical for here.

The other day I got an offer of a part time job. It involves several Saturdays and one Tuesday, and each shift runs about 15+ hours. The offer was from the clerk of court and the job is working the polls.

With people moving out and all, the list of commissioners has dropped and, according to the letter, since I vote very regularly, even in little elections . . .

No good deed goes unpunished.

I haven't decided what to do. I should really check and see when the training is, in case I look on this as sort of a paid civic duty.

Do I really want to spend at least 14 hours sitting on a folding chair? (Polls are open 6 AM to 8 PM in Louisiana.)

I'll have to think about this one.
