The upcoming elections/primaries and the political wrangling about redistricting down here in Texas are threateninhg to throw a spanner into the works of our vacation planning. This year we don’t want to go to Germany but spend some time here in the US. Our original plans had been to be on the road in the second half of May and the first half of June, for a combined car-and-bicycle vacation, mainly exploring some rail trails. And in autumn we’re planning to go to West Texas again, to Big Bend Country, where we spent our honeymoon in 2009.
But back to my original subject: with all the political squabbling going on here about redistricting [I don’t want to get into a detailed account here] the original date for the primaries has already passed and now they’re – possibly – set for May 29. And since Mary is the chairperson for the county Democratic Party, she should be present not only for the actual date, but also during all of the period leading up to the primaries, to be able to answer questions and/or help with whatever is necessary. We’ll have to see what she decides on. But it’s a nuisance, definitely. Just now we’re still planning to leave in the second half of April for about 3 weeks.
