Dos. In recognition of the clean start this will have, no matter what, come January, today I threw away socks dating to the presidency of George H.W. Bush and underwear dating to Clinton's first term. Srsly.
Three. Tonight, to celebrate the day, we'll feast on bone-in ribeye steaks, baked sweet taters, steamed veggies and hot garlic bread -- topped with American-as apple pie. It'll just be us.
Y'alls' votin' experience? Y'alls' day? Y'alls' plans?
God bless y'all, and God bless this here United States of America.
zwei: Tonight is "taco" night.
And thank GOODNESS for Dos!
#464, no wait. Tho voting at a used car dealership does have its hazards--tried to sell me a DeLorean!
Today we celebrated with my father being moved out of ICU less than 24 hours after being wheeled out of major, open-heart surgery to cut away his ascending aorta anyeurism and replace it with another "tube." Then my wife and I drove home, where we'll await ... Suite Life with Zach and Cody with our 6-year-old. We'll eat grilled chicken, and I'll avoid traditional TV. I figure at some point over the next 48 hours, I'll learn about the presidential election, and I hope my friend wins his election for sheriff and that another friend will be the state's next treasurer.
But I'll focus on my family. After two days with scary moments and my father's life in God's (and a wonderful surgeon's) hands, I'll be happy to look at my girls, feel my baby wiggle in her mommy's tummy and go on with life without lifting one ear toward what is happening at the polls.
I know the road will be long, and probably tough (isn't it always though?) but
CONGRATULATIONS!!!! (from Canada)
Memorable civics lesson.
