A long deserved rest...

It's been three weeks since I've seen my daughter - her schedule (that of 17-year-old) and mine (with the election) being what they are. Veterans Day is being celebrated on Monday in Rhode Island, so she has no school that day.

So I'm taking a long three-day weekend - a kind of mental health day - and spending some time with friends and family.

I'll be back Tuesday for the finale of the recount.

Hope you all have a good Veteran's Day weekend.

During your long restful vacation, maybe you'll realize that you failed to report Ned Lamonts visit to Norwich Monday morning, just like you failed to mention the millions of dollars Lieberman received from corporate interests and Republicans. Thanks for being "fair and balanced".

C'mon Ray, I need "a long deserved rest" too but this recount has me working a full week after Election Day, don't bail on us now!!

(Just kidding!) I hope you had a nice break and you were able to spend some time with your family.

So far, I've witnessed the recounts in Thompson, Voluntown and Chaplin. Chaplin's and Voluntown's numbers didn't change but in Thompson, they found one extra AB for Simmons and one for Courtney resulting in a wash.

Bill...I admire your dedication and I sincerely hope that you, too, get that long deserved rest.

It was a tough choice. The idea of traveling to Washington with the apparent Congressman-elect this week, the highs-and-lows of Monday's major recount in 35 towns - or spending some time with family (who have been ignored much of the last month).

I had to stop and think - what's really important. I have no doubt I made the right choice - at least for me.
