Margaret and Helen

Hi folks,

I discovered a very humorous blog a couple of years ago and followed it for a while. Then I lost my job, got busy and kind of forgot about it. Well, I have just read it again for the first time in a while and I think it's hilarious. I've put it back on my fave list - for a while anyway.

It's a blog by two elderly, retired women who call themselves Margaret and Helen. They don't go by their real names and you'll understand why if you read even one post. They are highly political - mostly during campain seasons - but speak some good old fashioned common sense the rest of the times. I especially loved the post last year about Thanksgiving - no politics, just thankful for family, but still stated with a wry wit.

Now I will warn you, the posts these days are all about politics, but the way they are written usually make me laugh...and they will royaly anger others...just depends on your point of view. Margaret is definitely the stronger personality and cracks me up. Her BFF is Helen, who lives on the opposite side of the country, and is much more, shall we say, diplomatic and less confontational.

I know I'm not the only one out there who appreciates what they say. And I'll be very glad when the election is over so I stop getting all these robo calls from candidates on both sides!!!
