Happy Happy Election Day!! I found the park pictures and this is Avery on her scooter. It was such a pretty day and we had so much fun. Then it was home to the pie. I want to thank you guys for sending the comments. Avery loved them. She wrote the "Thank you all avery" comment from So Carolina. You guys are wonderful.

I'm watching the election results and thinking about my mom. Every general election she would make popcorn and buy candy. So what did I have to do on the way home? You guessed it....I had to stop and get some popcorn and candy. You know I needed the candy like another hole in the head, but it is giving me some sweet memories.

Back in the old days we didn't know until really really late or the middle of the night who had won. Now in modern times they start projecting so early it kind of takes some of the fun out. Plus what about the western states. I heard someone on the radio today say that they should have everyone in the whole country voting at the same time and not do the time zones deal. That way they haven't called the race while the California folks are still voting. Then another idea of stretching out the times we can vote is another winner. Here in Georgia they did it early for a couple of weeks and today when some of my employees went to vote they didn't have to wait long at all.

I will just say, for me, I am happy this is winding up. My goodness, it seems like it has been going on forever. I would think the candidates must be exhausted. I know there's a lot of energy flying around, but all that traveling and rushing around. I just travel a few times a year and it seems like such a big deal.

Hope you guys have a relaxing evening. It's nearly all over, but the shoutin'!!!!!!!!!

We, also, are VERY thankful this election is FINALLY over! My goodness this thing has dragged on 'forever'. :o) Our voting lines are always short here in the Gawga countryside as there are so very few of us. It's our time to be social, in fact.

I'm so glad Avery enjoyed the compliments. She's cute as a button and deserves the happy thoughts.

Y'all have a great evening! CYA in the funny papers. ♥ ∞

The election seems to have gone on forever. I am quite pleased Obama is the new President as he seems to have the energy and stability. Lets hope so anyway.
No doubt there will be a "knock on affect" in Britain because whatever happens to America, catches up with us shortly afterwards!
Avery is a beautiful young lady! You can tell her that again from me!

Hi Miss Nana Trish,

That is a darling picture of Avery.

I am also glad the election is over. I was getting very tired of the mean spirited commercials. Even the girls asked "why are they so mean to each other"?

Have a blessed day.

hugs,
Barb

Thanks for stopping by and commenting. It was a long day at the polls and I will be writing a blog shortly about the experience and the long lines! I too am somewhat deflated thinking that America in general has seemed to have lost the moral tether. However He is still on the Throne and still in control. God bless you all. :-D

Thank you very much for your support on the Power of Prayer blog. Please remove the button on your side bar as I will be deleting it soon. I'm just trying to decide whether to explain, or just delete it.

I'm glad it's over too. Kind of disappointed...not many of the people who represent my values were elected. Oh well, we'll see what God is up to I guess.
