running for their lives

running for their lives

I've been too busy being busy to worry much about how the election results will change things for me.

This is always an interesting time of year at my job. I am a secretary to three judges. In New York, judges are elected to their positions (unless they are filling a mid-term vacancy, then they are appointed and have to run in the next election to keep the position). So each year at this time, the courthouse is filled with tension and anxiety. Some judges who are running for positions in higher courts can relax a bit; if they don't win, they still retain their position in the district court. Other judges are running for their lives.

Two of my three judges are in a race today. One is on the ballot for County court, the other for Family court. They both deserve the positions they are running for. They are fair, honest and devoted to their work.

However, if they do win I will be left without two of the greatest bosses I have ever had in my entire working career. So (even though they don't read this - at least not that I'm aware of) I want to wish them luck. But I'm doing it with my fingers crossed behind my back. I'm selfish like that.

I'll be keeping track of the elections here, mostly the race for NY Governer and some local races that have no interest to anyone reading this besides me.

Just a little side note: Who has the best record in the NFL? That's right. The Packers.

Of course, the Packers. Who else but the four-time Super Bowl winners! FYI, the last time Green Bay was 7-1 this far into the season, they won the Super Bowl (twice). :)

%&#@ the Packers...and I mean that in the best possible way! ;o)

I have been visiting your blog sporadically (there are just so many good ones and so little time!). But now that I know that you are a Packer Fan, you move to the top of my daily reading!

Go Pack!

Did someone mention FOUR superbowl wins? Ah, that's cute. I remember the days when we only had four. Sometime before Superbowl XXIX, I think it was...

Go Niners...
