Today I join my fellow bloggers in "serving up a slice"
to the Tuesday Slice of Life (SOL) community.
Thanks to Stacey, Betsy, Dana, Beth, Kathleen, Deb, Lisa, and Melanie
for hosting this meeting place each Tuesday and nurturing our writing lives.
It's easy as I grow older to find myself occasionally pining for the good ole days. I always feel this on election days because Washington state operates totally on a mail-in ballot system. I miss going to the polling place. I grew up in Oklahoma, and our home was a polling place for our neighborhood. My Election Day Memories post that I wrote four years ago shares the hustle and bustle of an election day in my childhood home. I miss adult memories of election day too. "I miss chatting with neighbors as I stand in line, looking for my name in the big book, signing on the dotted line signifying I was there to cast my vote, and proudly wearing the 'I voted' sticker." With all this nostalgia floating around for the good ole days, you can see why waking up to this pic made my day and filled my heart with hope!
