I did not say this, nor do I know who to attribute it to, but this sums it all up: “today is the day that men fought and died for. Today is the day we live for.” I urge everyone to go vote.
Heard a funny story today. As you know, stories abound about election fraud and cheating, and that is a good thing to be concerned about. As the following story shows, this has been happening in this country for a long time. Story took place in the very late 1800’s. The man I was listening to was told this story by his grandfather. Seems grandfather had to get on a train to go to his polling place in another town. As he got off the train there was a wagon with the name of the candidate he supported ready to take anyone supporting that candidate to the polling place. Grandfather was also given a bottle of an adult beverage to help pass the time on the trip. It wasn’t until much later that he realized the wagon was driven by a supporter of the opponent and he was going away from town. The grandfather was not able to get to the polls in time to vote. Some things never change.
Day #2 of my 365 daily challenge is another day of watches. As I set up my little composition, I was joined by my cat. I had wanted to get a couple of pictures of Hillary to post them on Halloween. He was extremely difficult to get to cooperate. So know Halloween pictures. But the minute I start taking pictures of my composition, he jumps on the table and settles himself on the table right in front of the camera, purring away.
I am all set for next year. Happy Halloween 2013
