In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, and anything else that happens to pop into my head. Sit back, relax for five minutes of a day, and enjoy!

Get out there...and VOTE

You know how you have certain friends in your life for awhile.  You hang with them for years, but then something changes in your life, or theirs, and you don't see them anymore?  Then they become an acquaintenance, or an "old" friend.  Well, I had one of those friends at one time.  He became an acquaintenance.  He ran for Mayor for our town.  I did not vote in that election and I can't remember what my excuse was, but I'm sure it was lame. 
He lost by ONE VOTE. 
Mine. 
A couple of weeks later I went into a small store and there he was, face to face, we looked right at each other.  I hung my head down in shame....
embarrassed. 
I learned a lesson. 
He would have made a good Mayor.
I changed everyone's life in this town. (OK I might be being a bit dramatic here....but still....) 

A few years later another person I knew was running for City Council.  My husband wasn't going to vote.  I told him to get in the car and I literally drove him to that election. 
Guess what? 
My friend won by two votes.  Ours!

Moral of this story....get off your arse and

VOTE!
It makes a difference.

PS - I'm having computer problems again.  Don't know from day to day if it's going to work.  I'll explain more later, but my point is, if you don't hear from me, it's because my computer ain't working correctly.  bummer for me.

  4. Cindy, I was 5th and Ted was 6th in line when they opened the doors. I vote for the right to whine-a** if I don't like things. One of my sisters didn't go vote...I better not hear one whining word, from her. xoxo, Susie
