It was voting day here in Virginia, and all our family did their part. Gregg got this off Facebook of our son and daughter-in-law. I am so very proud of them. We are all of a like mind, that's all I am going to say on that subject.
After voting Gregg and I treated ourselves to breakfast at the Silver Diner. We saw several people and like us, they were wearing their "I Voted" stickers. We smiled at a couple in silent congratulations, not only patting each other on the back figuratively speaking, but for getting out there in that pouring rain. Last night as I usually do in the evenings, I checked our local online neighborhood app and it said, "It's going to be close, don't let a little rain put you off voting tomorrow." Let's hope there is a good turn out. When we went at ten a.m., there were plenty of people around but I'm sure they had a big crowd on their way to work, and also it will get extremely busy when people come home tonight.
I met one of the hopeful candidates for Lieutenant Governor at the high school. She stepped out and shook my hand, and I told her it was very nice to meet her. Volunteers from both parties, young and older, were extremely polite, friendly and helpful. Thank you Ginny for reminding me how hard these volunteers work, for very long hours, and to let them know how much we appreciate what they do. We have also had people knocking on our door for several weeks, again from both parties, asking for whom we were going to vote. When we told them quite truthfully, both party volunteers, some of whom were young college students, were friendly and very polite. Their parents would have been proud of them for getting involved. At the school there were the usual tables of baked goods, manned by students and a few of their Mums. We didn't buy any but did give them a donation for their cause. Our son went to school there years ago, and we still like to be supportive.
Always feel good that we got out there and voted. Have a great evening everyone.
