Election Barks!


We have been waiting for a long time for it to be November 3rd in our household for a variety of reasons. I have just signed up for Medicare and I want to see the difference in my monthly deposit. I hope it’s not a huge difference, I sort of count on that money. Then of course, there is the elections in the U.S. In my family, my two siblings and my daughter are poll workers and I am very proud of them, as my mother would be if she were alive to see it.

Our mother was an activist. She believed strongly that one person could make a difference and that if you were equipped with the talent, resources and time to do something to advance good things for your community, you were not ever off the hook until you showed up and participated. I can honestly say that I have done a lot of volunteer work in my life but poll worker has not ever been one of those things that interested me. These days of Covid-19 have found senior citizens unable to participate in the numbers they once did but the youth of the country are going out there in full force. It makes one very enthusiastic to see this kind of participation.

My dog, Lila, does not judge me for not having done any poll work in the past, perhaps I can do so in the future. In any event, it is nice to know that no matter what I do or don’t do, Lila will always love me! Pets are amazing companions. I am sure one or more pets will accompany their owners on line for a while.

Let’s all stay safe out there.
