the voice provides some relief


we both looked at each other last night after it was over
that was nice
that was relaxing

we dvred the voice and watched it last night
we zoomed through the commercials
we didnt have to watch any political commercials

aside here my favorite coach is blake
my guess is my wife shes favorite coach is probably john

in fact i realized we havent really watched many political commercials at all
we mostly watch dvred tv shows even the news so we can miss the commercials
we also watch stations like pbs or netflix or amazon prime or hbo that dont do commercials
even when i watch sporting events i have them dvred so we also can miss all those political ads etc
it also speeds up the games
yes i turn my phone off when i watch the games so no one will text me the scores

all the sporting events lately we have been able to watch have also given us some relief from all the bad news thats on tv and all the political stuff thats going on
of course being a cowboy and longhorn fan makes it hard to watch
i may have to switch back to being a razorback fan

prior to watching the voice last night we watched the pbs news
there was no crazy talking going on 
one session was on dealings with china
a former trump person gave his side and a former bush and obama foreign affairs person gave their side
there was no histrionic stuff going on 
both gave their side of what needed to be done with china
i didnt mind listening to the side i didnt agree with
they made good points and were respectful of the moderator and the opposing side
im ok with that

it would be nice if we could all do that

we sometimes almost hate to turn on the tv or look at social media at all anymore
we both felt good after finishing the voice
it was just the singers and their stories trying to make it in a tough business and the judges all accomplished artists trying to pick the best ones who they think might win
an almost all feel good tv show

it was such a relief to just sit and enjoy a show a feel good show

i noticed when i looked at social media that many folks are voting early 
now many i know have voted the opposite of how i voted but im ok with it
as long as they vote and no one interferes with their right to vote

all of us voting is what makes our democracy work
not voting leaves the control of it in the hands of a limited view

if you are undecided at this point on who needs to be president well maybe you shouldnt vote on that race
im not sure how anyone can be undecided can you

yall keep voting even if you cancel out my vote

what i do when i go to vote i think to myself as i vote
im canceling out put a name here their vote
it makes me feel better when i do it that way
i can only chose one person
i want tell you who that person was
i will admit though i have voted before to cancel out my wife shes vote

keep voting
be safe when you are doing it
dont let anyone keep you from voting

right before we went to bed
we said
that felt so good to just watch tv and enjoy it
