Reports of a “Light Turnout”

voter receipt

Election Day.  No students at school.  No lines to vote.  Many people stayed home from the polls today.

I heard the comments, “it’s a done deal.”    “Why bother?”      “My vote won’t make a difference in the outcome” “It’s already decided”

The 19th Amendment  (Women’s Right to Vote) was ratified in 1920.

Even if you’re frustrated with politics, exasperated with politicians or feel powerless to affect change, it’s important to exercise your right to cast your ballot. In many places in the world, you’re denied this opportunity.


Brother and Sister Waiting for Brother and Sister

Waiting for the school bus at the end of the day.  You can hear it  round the corner.  My sister sat on the curb with Maura and Murphy-  Super Jack was ready for action.  November afternoon with the grandchildren.  It is going to be hard to leave and return to normal life.

There were chores to accomplish today, debrief from the weekend celebration.  Got J off to Omaha before breakfast.  We returned the layer separators to the cake baker’s place. The lost engraved forks were found in the kitchen of the Athenauem where the reception was held. Tomorrow the wedding dress to the cleaners in the morning. Visiting with Matthew before he returns to Croatia.   La and James are on their honeymoon!    Thanks for all the wonderful comments and notes. It was nice to share the wedding excitement with my blog followers.
