Folks who had felt hostage to uncertainty during the 16-day government shutdown may feel a bit more free today, able to stretch their emotional legs and smile a bit more after a short term deal was approved.
Three cows in South Africa are doing the same. A friend in Capetown passed this along to me, and it's too good not to share. A compact Toyota Tazz was stolen in Butterworth/Transkei, but later wrecked and apparently abandoned.
Let's hope America's economy emerges in as good a shape, and that lawmakers can find enough common ground to avoid another wreck when the current deal runs out.
