Georgia, Then and Now

This is my daughter, Georgia. We call her George:

We took this picture of her a year ago:

We took this picture this morning:

(She wouldn't let me put the sticker on her head.)

I wish all of you a great election day.

  • I stuck my sticker on my sweater and now it's all fuzzy and won't stick to my head.

  • The long line at our polling place was gridlocked due to a gathering crowd of people who had been inexplicably dropped from the roster. I overheard one of them insisting that they had lived in the same district, had voted every year since whenever, and they (thankfully) were not going to leave until they were allowed to cast their vote. I also noted some grumbling in the ranks about the electronic voting machines lacking a paper trail. I guess I sort of instigated that little rebellion but I say no harm in priming the pump if you know what I mean.

  • You, Sir, are rich beyond the wildest of dreams! I must go vote so she has a better country to live in. Now, to build better candidates.

  • Drib-
    I already do. Luckily, her sense of humor is profoundly evil, so we get along pretty well.

    I've always been a fan of scotch tape under these circumstances. Or Super-glue.

    I guess the lack of a paper trail is pretty bad. To be honest, though, I miss the loud, resounding CLANG that used to tell me my vote was being rammed home. Voting without sound effects is okay, I guess, but it's missing something.

    Believe me, I know how lucky I am. And I was thinking of your last post when I took George to the polling place. My parents always voted absentee, so I never really got the joy of voting with them. I'm glad that I can give it to my daughter.

    Take care of yourself!

  • She's adorable! My, Georgia, what Big Eyes you have!!

    It's as I've always suspected, then. Most voters are children.

  • You should have let her put the sticker on your head this time.

  • She's beautiful!

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I feel your frustration.

    Keep taking George to the polls with you. It'll be second nature for her by the time she's 18.

  • Hearts-
    Remember when you were a kid and couldn't wait to vote? When class elections were so damn cool? Of course, in those elections, there usually was a decent candidate that you could get behind.

    It'll happen, but not yet. This time around, she wanted to eat it.

    Good to see you again.

    I hope so. I hope she'll catch my excitement at voting.

    Thanks for stopping by. I love your blog!

  • Odat-
    Yeah, I agree. On both counts.

    Thank you. It's good to hear from you.
