Tuesday is Election Day
Throughout the United States
From the Presidential Election
down to the "dog catcher" in little towns and villages.
When we lived in the city, we never saw anyone who ran for office
Campaigning was not "grass roots"
It was slick and you went to see the candidate
The candidate never came to see you!
But in little towns, that's just not true
And one of the candidates stopped by Linderhof
this week -- they'd like to leave a sign, they said.
And when anyone stops by, I always put the kettle on.
|My everyday tea pot and Spode blue and white. For a tea for a candidate I should have had a red teapot so that the table would have been red, white and blue -- or perhaps some red napkins!|
We visited in the breakfast room
over cups of tea and slices of pumpkin bread
|Alas, not my pumpkin bread, but Mary's from the Farmer's Market|
October and November, after all, are pumpkin months!
|Have you noticed that all campaign signs are red, white and blue?|
If I ran for office, my campaign signs would be ORANGE!
And the front of Linderhof --
It sports signs from the candidates that we support.
Local elections all --
County Commissioner, Treasurer and State Representative.
Those candidates will get our vote on Tuesday.
For I'm a traditionalist
And even though we can vote early,
we chose not to,
preferring instead to go to the polls on Election Day.
