FRIENDLY CHITCHAT: —-How are you dealing with the weather? —- It’s been nice outside, but I’ve been a bit under the weather myself. First time out in a couple of days. —-I was so happy to see the new commercial center locating in town. —-Yes, but I hated seeing the Thrift store move. —- You look great; I love your haircut.
WHAT YOU DON’T SAY: —-Seems like I know that man. Maybe he works at the tractor store. —-Don’t tell me you’re dumb enough to vote for Biden/Harris. —- Hope that’s not a Trump voter. —- Wow, she sure is looking peaked.
THE LINE BEGINS TO DWINDLE: —- We should get in pretty soon, now. —- It was SOMETHING ELSE about an hour ago. —- Getting chilly now with the sun going down. —- Honey, you sure you have your ID card?
Yes, I have spent my time waiting in the voter’s line. I have always found it pleasant. Felt pleased with the process. Proud to be a citizen. All that nice civic duty and honor was nice.
I’ve been thinking of asking Sammy if he thinks I should make some calls and find out where we can go vote early. We are old. What if we are not able to stand in that line this year? It is not something I want to give up. I don’t want to ever refer to “the year we were afraid to wait in line.”
President Trump has been accused of lying about mail in fraud. I checked it out. https://www.heritage.org/election-integrity/commentary/database-swells-1285-proven-cases-voter-fraud-america That doesn’t seem terribly high to me, but it is the number of convictions. I imagine convictions are small compared to the numbers that are not found. Those who say there is no fraud must be lying; there is fraud. How much? That is in question. But even one cancels my vote! I don’t like it!
