I went to the poles early today thinking that I could vote and get out, NOT. The machines were not working. I didn’t know this so, I signed in and once you do that you can’t leave. They finally got one machine that was working, kind of, and the line began to move. If I had taken my purse instead of just my wallet I would have had a camera to take a photo to show you the scene. Didn’t happen. I will show you another scene instead. Remember that I told you I was putting new carpet in my bedroom? I painted the walls and this morning we hung a mural on one wall. I really love it because it is gloomy outside right now but, look at what I can see every morning when I wake up.If it looks crooked it’s not, my walls are not straight. This is an old house and, just like me, every year it sags a little more. I will take another photo after the new carpet is in. The man who is putting it down was behind me in the voting line so, I don’t know what time he will get here.
I imagine there will be a larger turnout to vote this election than in some past. I hope you vote and while you are in line talk to those around you, not about politics but, about life. Remember: The sun does not shine for a few trees and flowers, but for the whole wide world’s joy. – Henry Ward Beecher. Melanie
