This is my second week on the new schedule. Every morning I sip on my coffee over the local news and a book, then I head to the pool. Tuesdays and Thursdays I work at the Democratic Party Headquarters driving up near the Brinell tow yard where I worked for many years. Wednesdays and Fridays I work at the Discovery Shop just down the hill. Saturday mornings and Sunday’s George is my focus. Monday is the day for me…a selfish and self-centered me day. Yesterday I read.
That's it...repetitions. This day I got to do data entry for some of the hundreds of precincts walked. Some kind volunteer takes a list and goes door to door. The list has little boxes he or she can check. Target this one, the list says. Home? Not Home? Are they going to vote? New voter? Et al. When the list get's back to the shop, someone like me gets to hold a scanner over the bar code in front of the name. Are they home? Another bar code enters it all into the cloud. Boy, nothing like the political volunteering I did in the past. It truly is a brave new world out there.
