Our State has been a hotbed of political activity for
weeks now, and the outcome will help affect our nation for the next few years.
Our polling place changed when we moved, but we went from
Stranger Creek Volunteer Fire Department to
I actually had stood in line for ten minutes, waiting for those ahead of me.
It was nice to see a young face behind the desk, our senior citizens are so often
the main part of the workers.
This young lady also obliged me with a picture:
I did not vote until about 2 PM, because I drove up to see my brother Pete this morning at
his nursing home. I overheard the election workers saying that
they were a little over 25% at that point. I pray that that amount increased the rest of the afternoon, especially as people began to come home from work.
There were so many reminders on Facebook all day long, I read my feed
when I finally got home this evening.

I cannot NOT take them out for a run... they greet me, jumping up and down, and

a little color on the ridge behind it.
Troy has been very, very busy since Sunday.
This is the tree that was knocked over by our mini-tornado four summers ago.
You see why it went over easily... it was hollow at the core. Troy will be burning this wood after it is split.
And of course, I looked for ten minutes for a picture of the goats on this tree... but... I could not find it. Keith always tells me I have TOO many pictures and they are not organized well... but... they are organized by date, and that's what I need most. I guess it didn't work this time.
I will try to get caught up on everyone's blog tomorrow while Keith is at dialysis... it's funny how it has just become part of the routine already.
I'd like to ask everyone's prayers for little Macey, the granddaughter of a good friend... she is
going to be having MRIs at the University of Iowa Medical Center in Iowa City tomorrow,
and her parents and grandparents are very, very worried. Let's all think positive thoughts so this little seven year old can get through her ordeal in good shape.
