Words Count With Mama Zen



Ah, the joys of scheduled posting!

By the time you read this, the U.S. presidential election will (finally!) be over, and a winner will have been declared.  But as I'm typing this, the voting is just getting underway.  It's been a long, nasty, campaign, and the candidates are dead even in the polls.  I've cast my vote; now, all I can do is wait . . .

So, give me the news, Toads!  Who won?  Break it to me gently . . . in twenty words or less.

Thanks for this Prompt, Mama Zen. It gave me the last part of my Election Day poem. Margaret, I may have missed it as I have been unable to read everything lately, but--if not a poem--I would welcome reading a blog about your wishes for our government. Lead on!

I'm afraid I can't really comment on the issues as I'm largely ignorant of them, but I shall read today's responses with great interest.

Morning toads. I'm finding it really hard to write atm--or even to read and take in poetry. I hope to be over it soon.

I also hope this very close nailbiter of an election convinces our leaders to work together instead of reviling each other from both sides and fighting against the compromise I think all reasonable adults expect to happen in a country this diverse.

Thanks to all who enjoyed my zinnia photo on Monday, also. I hope to be back reading, writing and posting soon.

Could have said it just as eloquently in fewer than 20 LETTERS :-)

We were happily ensconced in a bar full of progressives, nursing our beer, having dinner, and watching results.

For my sisters' sake, I'm sorry it was such a rout. Kind of like the Detroit Tigers losing the series 4-0 and the final loss being in their home town.

Now comes the hard work... getting Congress to do something besides collecting a paycheck!

Peace to all, Amy
