I Voted-And Was Reminded How Old I Am!

I voted, around 2 PM, with Rene. It's a small town and we chatted with a couple of neighbors, and waved to candidates of all persuasions. One group had set up a small pup tent 75 feet from the polls, and had a baby and 3 small kids warm and happily eating pizza inside it. Rene wanted to join them, but the tent just wasn't big enough.  

I also reminded my daughter (age 31) to vote, and got a lecture on how her mother taught her well, took her to the polls as soon as she could crawl, that she had been voting regularly since she was 21, knew her candidates (local too), and her duty as a citizen, and besides, her civil rights were in danger, too. She told me that her partner had voted, too, so I didn't have to ask.  

I apologized. Sometimes I forget she's a fully functioning adult these days, and has been for many years! Only yesterday she was crawling around my feet as I voted. Well, maybe it was several days before yesterday.

I won't know the outcome 'til tomorrow morning, because I won't listen to hours of talking heads, and am planning to go to bed soon.   Maybe tomorrow will be a good day.  

Blessings, Margo

Let's home tomorrow is a good day.  It's a close race right now, but we knew that already - lol.

Margo, Sorry I left you such a long entry yesterday, but I just care about you. I didn't even ask my boys if they voted, because I didn't want to hear their lecture. Old, yes, I feel old too. Just the other day, I was talking about my husband being in the war (Vietnam) and the girl looked at me and said: What war? Good grief, I wanted to say, "Dahlin' It was the Civil Wawah!" I just schruged my shoulders and walked on!   Much Love, Anne

Glad you guys voted.

 Take it from someone who voted for McGovern in '72 ... you can't always get what you want.
 Hate 'talking heads' huh?  Not me!  There's nothing more satisfying than watching white guys in suits pontificating on the Meaning of it All.
 Not!
