Election Day

It’s Election Day here in the USA and a big one with the President, all members of the House of Representatives, and a third of our Senators on the ballot. It’s been an interesting campaign season and is likely to continue to be interesting as the results are tallied.

      I agree that an indisputable blow out would be a good thing. We also voted a couple of weeks ago. IN speaking to our town clerk, I was amazed at the well thought out process they have in place to process the votes in a timely manner here. Town and city clerks are the current everyday heros. Stay safe and be well, my friend.

      My great grandfather came from County Cork. In 1938, he applied for citienship. On his application, he wrote that he would make a fine citizen because he’d voted in every election since 1910.

    I always dread this night and the increased anxiety, but I am looking forward to moving forward. Grateful and humbled to have the right to vote. This picture is my favorite election day post!

      I agree that no matter what happens, it will be good to get beyond the election and move forward. I’m glad you liked the photo. I have to start getting his Thansksgiving outfit ready.

    We live in interesting times for sure. Alarming is another word that comes to mind! But all we can do is what we know is right, and hope our example might influence others. So I voted, and whatever the outcome, I will accept it calmly. Because that’s the world I want to live in!
