Worms last week, politics this week. Hmm. Don’t worry though, this isn’t a political rant just an observation. 🙂
I know that most of you don’t live in a state where politics is a business so I thought you might find this interesting.
This is a list compiled by NBC10 Boston as of March 26, 2019 detailing 734 visits to New Hampshire by 2020 political candidates. Think about it – this list is five months old.

I couldn’t find an updated list, but I did find an August calendar showing candidate visits.
Now consider that NH is approximately 83% forested and only 93 miles across from East to West and 180 miles North to South.
Want to move to NH – beautiful mountains, gorgeous seacoast, and politics year round?
If so, pack your sense of humor, don’t consider a landline with a published number, always utilize the peephole in your front door before opening, check the caller id before answering even a cell phone, accept you’ll never have a conversation that doesn’t include politics, and learn to smile and nod your head without taking a side.
With a three day holiday weekend coming up, we’ll be blanketed with candidates. They must wave to each other as they pass on our two interstates, 93 and 89.
Stay safe and have fun this coming Labor Day Weekend. I’ll do what I always do – work in my gardens and stay off the interstates and away from the candidates and the tourists. 🙂
