Had the longest day of door-knocking yet today. Perfect weather for it. Part of the reason: the houses were far apart and some were difficult to find. Another: People were in a talkative mood, which is fun. I learned a lot.  

Tomorrow, I travel to Alexandria for a screening interview with the state nurses organization. 

A particular delight today: a 92-year-old woman who thinks old people live too long, including herself. She's just tired. Company all weekend. But she's doomed by genes: Her father lived to be 100, and her mother 98. She's not in the least depressed, and had great humor. But she's just had enough.

I said, "well, it is great that you're still living on your own."

"Great?" she said, with a roll of the eyes. "It is a lot of work!"

She just finished washing clothes, weeding the garden and doing the dishes from the weekend. 

I said well, if you're still around in November, I sure would appreciate your vote. 

"Oh, I'll be around," with a sigh. "And you'll have my support!" 

We parted with a good laugh.
