Yes, that white sign in the background says "VOTE HERE." Our polling place is two doors down in our neighbor's garage, just spitting distance away. So absolutely no excuse for us not to vote!!!
We walked down as a family about 8 a.m., and there were only 2 or 3 people in front of us. BJ sat at my feet while I voted, and BB hung out with S. As I was filling out my ballot, BJ asked, "Mommy, where is Obama?"
I laughed, as did a few other folks around us. "He's not here, honey," I said. "But maybe you'll see him on the television tonight."
"Mama, is Obama real?" was his reply.
Oh yes, very much so. And (touching wood) it looks like we're in spitting distance to the change we so desparately need in this country..... (well, close to the results that will begin that long process, at any rate. After the election, the real work will start.)
