OK, I am NOT about to go all political on you, but I had to share this bit of information. It seems that presidential candidate Barack Obama will be speaking in my little town of Grand Junction today! Pretty cool, huh??
Now, I will NOT mention if I support this candidate or not. But I will NOT be going to listen to him...just too many people for me, LOL!! I'm such a homebody! And truthfully, if it were not for my husband, I probably would still care less about politics. But HE likes to listen to talk radio a lot and discuss politics, so I am bound to learn a little bit!
What I find really cool is the location he choose to speak at! Cross Orchards is a historic farm here in Grand Junction. Heather and I usually visit at least once a year. It's a really cool place. I think her class will even be going on a field trip there next month.
I believe he is coming here because we are in the middle of oil drilling fields! Plus, I think they consider Colorado to be a swing state. I may listen to his speech while I clean the house today...but we'll see. Now, I wonder if McCain will visit us too??
Boy, Grand Junction is really getting bigger than it was when I moved here almost 12 years ago!
