Hi Ho, Hi Ho...

It's off to vote we go. The road outside is nearly on fire from the amount of people driving back and forth to the polls this morning, keeping it hot.

As a general rule I avoid talking politics here. I am just not of a political bent, unlike my brother and husband. However, there was a opinion column in the newspaper this past week that I wanted to comment on.

He said that no matter what your opinion of the candidates you'd better ought to get out and vote. People shed blood and died for your right to vote; if you don't think there is anyone to vote FOR, get out and vote AGAINST someone. That's what I am doing.

Plus, if you are a woman you'd better show your appreciation to those women who got out and fought for your right to vote. It wasn't too terribly long ago that you as a woman weren't considered intelligent enough to be able to have a valid opinion to vote.

Husband is off to haul a cow up to the dry lot and then we are going to go off to do our civic duty at the polls.

Happy voting everyone.
