I am happy to report that last night my wife Jamie was elected to her fourth term as Harrison County Treasurer, leading local countywide candidates with 56.23% of the vote. She was obviously helped by our three boys Parker, Grayson & Collin (l to r) who ran the attached picture in local papers repeatedly in the days before the election with the caption "Please Vote for Our Mom" (no, I'm not joking. You would too - you know you would).
To celebrate both the successful end to another campaign and putting up with your truly for the last ten years (our 10th anniversary is November 16) Jamie and I are leaving the country for an extended vacation as you read this, so I don't expect that there will be many (if any) weblog posts between now and the end of the month. Happy Thanksgiving!
