Day 240

Saturday! Matt took the kids to the pool while Tracy and Nana made the baby swap. There was a little respite exchange between the baby we've had most of the year and two other babies in foster care. Also while most of the clan swam, Jamie ran a Parlor Car Chat wherein Karl Hovanitz (of Bitter Creek Western fame) talked about a Davenport trench locomotive they've restored at Norgrove Railway. We watched more than our share of movies afternoon and evening, including some Christmas movies.

Here's the status of the election. Most mainstream folks believe Biden has won the presidency. Trump is fighting in court over election process issues. We'll see. But let's say today Biden is declared the president-elect. Let's put down some markers... Gasoline is currently $2.99 per gallon and $3.08 per gallon diesel in CA. Milk is $4.47 a gallon, interest rates are 2.65 percent for a 30 year mortgage. The stock market closed at 27,848, even though we have been fighting COVID for 9 months. Our GDP growth for the 3rd Quarter was 33% (a record). We had the best economy ever until COVID and it is recovering well. We have not had any new wars or conflicts in the last 4 years. North Korea has been under control and has not been testing any missiles. Isis has not been heard from for over 3 years. The housing market is the strongest it has been in years. Homes have appreciated at an unbelievable rate and sell well.

Where'd all the hair go? Hint: different baby.

Lexi did all kinds of drawings for the new babies.
