Y'all are Hee-larious

Really. I am surrounded by jokesters and funny folk. That is the only explanation for why I received THIS in my email just days before my approaching birthday. While I am reaching "a certain age"
 I assure you I am not quite ready for retirement (not that there's anything wrong with that). To whomever signed me up for AARP, you know who you are (even if I don't!)


Democracy smells a lot like ... pie

I-voted I pity the people who cast absentee ballots. Our polling place is a local church. We vote, catch up with neighbors, browse the bake sale and annual bazaar, and come away the better for it. Today I scored some vintage Tupperware, an antique(ish) cider bottle, and a fantastic cherry crumb.

For me, democracy is an enjoyable part of small town life. And Freedom smells a lot like pie.
