The Big Election Day

It's a cold and rainy day here. The mountains can't be seen through the cloud cover. I'll bet we have snow-capped peaks tomorrow.

There really aren't many sweeter sights:

It was pretty painless...quiet, peaceful, smiles all around. Moms and dads, infants and elderly, clean cut and scruffy...all gathered to add their 2 cents. So this is what democracy looks like. I'm so thankful that we don't have to have armed guards and barricades to protect our right to vote.

I couldn't take my eyes off of this soldier.

The ballots here were simple - a piece of paper with bubbles and a felt-tipped pen to do the marking. There will be no "hanging chad" problems here!

That's it? It seemed almost too dramatic music in the background? No fireworks? Nope, just a quiet yet firm "Daiquiri has voted" from the ballot gatherer. Yes. Yes she has.

"Becky has voted"

It is great to be an American, isn't it?

I even rode a bike there instead of driving. I'm proud of me. ; )

Great job capturing your voting day. Did you get to submit your photos to the NYTimes?

As we looked at your "voting day" photos, my four year old said of the soldier, "Hey, that looks like daddy." Yes it does. When he voted yesterday he was in his uniform, on his way to the armory, too.

I'm so proud of them, aren't you? You said you were so glad we didn't have to armed guards and baricades, these men and women are why we don't.

God Bless America!!!

Okay, I'm a little jealous...mountains! I know this post was something other than God's natural surroundings but MOUNTAINS! I love them! Please more picts of them! What a blessing to have them so close!

Can you tell I'm a little jealous?
