I chose some misty Alaska glacier pics to represent our future. I write this on Election Day 2016. I have no clue as to the finish, no projections yet, no winner. Will there be a winner? Are we winning or losing? Ah, that's beyond me
I do know that on Wednesday, I shall get up, eat breakfast, and still drive my hour to work - as will most of America. Then we watch the clock for lunchtime. Then we count down to going home. In the middle - paper is shuffled.
There has to be a future because Ray and I are hosting a party for his father on Saturday 11/12. The man shall be turning 80 and deserves a bit of a to-do. I've got Tex-Mex ordered along with a chocolate cake. We expect 20 people plus kids.
So, post election day, the American flag shall still wave. Folks work, eat, and muddle along. Has anything changed?
The key to me is family, love, respect, work, and life...........truly the Nike slogan "Just Do It" applies.
What say you? I have blog friends from all states and a variety of countries. Can we all agree - life goes on and we do our best?
