Election is over. Those of you that remember Tommy Jones will readily also remember Tommy’s famous way of telling you who was going to win...... “the one that gets the most votes boys” And so it goes.
We are also reminded that one time that didn’t stand up.
Richard Kyle won his Arizona House seat in November 1993, more easily than he had won the Republican primary in September. He and his primary opponent, John Gaylord, had tied and had agreed to settle things with one hand of five-card stud dealt by the speaker of the Arizona House.

Not A Bad Idea
Two gas men were out checking meters in a residential neighborhood one day. They parked the truck at the end of the street and worked their way up the street. At the last house, a woman watched from her kitchen window as they checked her meter.
Finally finishing their work, the older man, a supervisor, challenged the younger man, his trainee, to a race back to their truck, wanting to prove that an older man could still beat a younger man.
They raced back to the truck, with the supervisor holding a lead, when they noticed that the woman from the last house was racing up behind them.
They stopped until she caught up and asked what was wrong.
As she gasped for breath, she said, "When I saw you two gas men running as hard as you could, I figured I'd better run too!"
Although this married couple enjoyed their new fishing boat together, it was the husband who was behind the wheel operating the boat. He was concerned about what might happen in an emergency. So one day out on the lake he said to his wife, "Please take the wheel, dear. Pretend that I am having a heart attack. You must get the boat safely to shore and dock it."
So she drove the boat to shore.
Later that evening, the wife walked into the living room where her husband was watching television. She sat down next to him, switched the TV channel, and said to him, "Please go into the kitchen, dear. Pretend I'm having a heart attack and set the table, cook dinner and wash the dishes."
