this is the sticker i got for voting
i early voted
by mail

my wife she has her early voting envelope but she wants to go to the polling place on voting day to experience the whole voting in person thing
after watching the news and reading about voting turnout
she may be in for long wait in line next tuesday

now she has a history of waiting in long lines
she is best known for waiting in the long long lines at franklin bbq in austin texas
you get there at 730am to get a spot so that you maybe can get bbq at 12-100pm
she does it
she enjoys it
i guess she will do it again next tuesday waiting in line to vote
she always has these stories to tell

once at franklins she met this lady and developed a friendship over the years
they still stay in contact via facebook and other social media
another time the lady next to her in line struck up a conversation about her dad who was it turned out was a student in my historian brothers class
when asked my historian brother said yes in fact i have a letter i kept in my files that he wrote after the class was over
another time the person in line was from arkansas and use to coach in the high schools there
he knew my brother in laws who were coaches and he also attended a small college in arkansas that my two nieces attended

so when she does vote this year im sure she will come back with some story like these

she always attracts these stories it seems
just last evening as she was walking from our condo up the sidewalk and over to the garage
i was standing on our second floor porch since she walks fast she seemed to be flying up the sidewalk

pause for a minute
i chose for her sake not to take any photos of this event
i will spare her that but i will tell the story
it is funny sort of but probably not to her

she was dressed in this halloween outfit as superwoman i guess
she had the cape and tshirt
black pants
thsoe rbg superman socks with capes hanging down
she tends to walk fast so as she was walking the capes were flying in the breeze
i looked down and texted her
you sure look cute
i knew our granddaughter ms b would love her outfit
a lot
since she dresses up like that and runs through the house sometimes

so as i was texting i heard this yelp
i looked up
she had disappeared from site behind a long line of shrubs
i heard her laughing almost a os laugh
the bunnies who live in those shrubs were scattering across the lawn like some fox or dog was after them
up popped up her head above the shrubs
she turned and walked limped back to the condo
i noticed her pants were all ripped

what happened i asked
she said i fell on something and hurt my leg
i need to change pants so i can get to the trick or treating with ms b and mr h
i looked at the leg
another os moment

well it looked like someone attacked her leg with a butcher knife
i gently cleaned it up
i thought i wish i had a suture kit to sew her up
maybe i could just use some gorilla glue and duct tape

she wouldnt go for that
i said we need to go to the er

so we did
a 3 hour trip
for xrays and suturing
a lot of suturing i must add

she as she was turning to wave to me tripped and landed on a 2 ft metal sprinkler head
had a sharp edge like a knife

what i was getting to in this story is that she always has these meet up experiences when she does things

last night the er doctor did his residency here in california where i almost did mine
when he heard my southern accent he asked you from arkansas
ever heard of this town in southern arkansas
yes i said
i worked there in the hospital in high school and later as a lab assistant after college then later as a physician
he went to the same medical school i did and we knew a lot of the same professors and state doctors
some my fellow classmates

so im sure when she returns from voting next week she will have some story like she always does

now back to voting

i am excited for this election this year
because there so many people voting this year in the midterms
usually its just old white folks that vote
now its young and old folks
folks of different races different religions different political views different educational levels different financial levels

all voting at the same time at the highest numbers ever in a midterm election

i think this is what the starters of our country envisioned when they started our country

yep im happy that all yall are voting
even though i dont agree with half of yalls vote

my wife she is ok this morning
she didnt have kryptonite in her pocket when she fell

here are some smart remarks
you should have been batman
you didnt get krytonited did you
did you fly over here
you should have been flying
there were more but ill spare her more jokes

if you havent yet
