Get Thee To The Polls!

Scene: this morning

Bear: It's Election Day!

Me (mock confusion): Oh yeah ... who am I voting for again?

Bear (sternly): Mom, do I need to write it on your hand?


Everyone at Chez Jenn is voting in this election. The junior high is holding its own election, where students are voting on not only the presidential candidates, but also the senatorial ones and the local ballot propositions. The third grade is holding a Presidential election. Bug is taking it quite seriously.

And does everyone know that Starbucks is giving out FREE COFFEE to everyone who votes today? I'm going to need it to stay awake and watch the election returns.

Our beautiful flag is hanging right out our front door and blowing in the breeze this beautiful sunny cool day. We just had our cup ofcoffee and we are on our way to our polling place.

Last night out whole downtown area was blocked off; Secret Service people everywhere; media from all over the country as McCain ended his campaigning on the courthouse steps.

Thanks for the tip re Star Bucks coffee. I will make it a point to stop by.

God Bless America!

Our flag is out too, and it's a beautiful day for those who will have to stand outside waiting their turn to vote. 74ยบ! I was fortunate and only had a 7-minute wait. Papa may not be as lucky this afternoon after work. We'll see. I'm sure we'll all be glued to the TV this evening anxiously awaiting the outcome!

Hey Jenn!!!

I got your invite at the email address I always forget about!

I wanted the free coffee but the old bird at the table forgot to give me a sticker.

A sad day in Sass-Land. A sad, sad day. ;)
