A good patient. Is anyone? I take sickness as an insult to my well-being. I give voice to my discomfort.I don't even try to be good-natured or uplifting.There are limits to what I am physically willing to endure. I said I wouldn't talk about it. I changed my mind.
The medication is taking its course. My head is clear. From the neck down, pain persists in muscles and joints.I have six more days of anti-biotic. No doubt things will improve along the way.
Out-going Councillor Stephen Granger is asking for a re-count of votes. Apparently he has difficulty accepting the same fate as several of his closest associates. There will be a cost of $25Ks. which will be on top of the cost of the election.
Seven years, ago when outgoing Councillor Mac Eachern demanded a recount of my votes, by way of a friendly welcome back, regulations required a re-count under a certain number of votes. My votes were well beyond it.
Now there is no automatic requirement for a re-count. The election machines have proven their accuracy time and time again. Including my own.
There's little chance the vote will change. So the $25Ks will be an expensive lollipop soother for aloser
A few nights ago, a few new Councillors met to-gether. It takes time to calm down after winning. Winning is better than losing.
The outgoing Mayor joined the group to assure them of availability if they needed any advice. It must be hard to let go.
Assurance was offered and a statement made, there would soon be a by-election.
Wishful thinking maybe.
