Yes folks, I have been elected. I was elected to the Board of Directors for the Creekside at Preston Home Owners Association. Woohoo!

Actually, a bigger deal than first appears. Not only are these people my neighbors who live just down the street but there are about 800 families that I represent. So, I am taking this serious.

But, who woulda thunk it? Me, an elected official.

It certainly felt strange and sobering to look into the faces of so many people and see that look of expectant hope and me not wanting to fail them.

“We’re counting on you.”

What a weighty phrase when someone places their trust in you, makes a point of coming up to you after the public election to tell you too. Hmmm. Weighty in deed.

How is it that so many politicians can disregard those faces, those words, those stares of expectant hope? How is it those faces are forgotten for personal agenda? This bothers me… greatly actually.

Well, there’s my sharing.

I’m a writer / thinker more than I am a blogger. I like to think about things a bit then throw them out there in word form for viewing; sometimes even for feedback.

Today is Friday and All Hallows’ Eve. It’s a nice day so far in north Texas. My wife finangled a projector and we use that to host a movie for our neighbors. We’ve done that several times. Last year for Hallowe’en’.  We watched Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein. Very few ‘got it.’ But it was funny. 🙂

This time around it’s Disney’s Haunted Mansion with Eddie Murphy. It should be funny. He has a good sense of the comedic.

Don’t eat too much candy. Watch your sugar intake. Be safe and have fun with your kids and your neighbors. Or go to a Fall Harvest Festival run by one of your local churches.
