Today is election day.
I’m gonna share with you a little secret…….
I have never voted.
Oh, the shame! I cannot hold my head high and proud, because I have never voted.
I cannot complain about the way the government is running this country, because I have never voted.
Didn’t know how.
My Mother voted when I was a kid. But politics was not something that was discussed around me. So I never knew much about it.
I went along my merry way, pretending that the powers that be knew what they were doing.
But, at The Captain’s persistance, I have registered to vote. This will be my first official presidential vote. And will be a learning experience.
The Captain votes at every election. It took me awhile to get on the bandwagon.
On another note…
My birdhouse gourd crop turned out pretty well from only one plant.
Twelve, in all, including a little one that, for some reason, didn’t make it into this picture.
Oh, two didn’t get counted because they were hiding in the weeds and the lawn mower shredded them this weekend. Darn it!!
And the Halloween display The Captain drove me to see and photograph for you, is gone.
Christmas has taken it’s place.
Yes, you read that right.
The Captain drove by yesterday and couldn’t believe his eyes. Whoever lives in that house, over the weekend, took down all their Halloween and put up Christmas.
I’m gonna drive over there as soon as I possibly can and get pictures for you.
I’m off to vote, for the first time in my life. I’ve always felt that one vote (mine) wouldn’t make a difference. Thankfully, everyone doesn’t feel that way. So this year, my vote will be counted along with all the others. And maybe it WILL make a difference.
And if you’re thinking of not voting?
Your vote does count!
So, hop on the wagon, brave the crowds and VOTE!!!
See ya at the polls!
