A Flag Waving Day!


Americans have exercised their right to vote and gone to the polls and let their voices be heard!

“I met those of our society who had votes in the ensuing election, and advised them, 1. To vote, without fee or reward, for the person they judged most worthy: 2. To speak no evil of the person they voted against: And, 3. To take care their spirits were not sharpened against those that voted on the other side.” -John Wesley, 1774

Excellent quote but too bad that the campaign did not heed the third requirement! Great photo of a beautiful child!

Numbers 2 and 3 are sadly ignored these days.

Great pic!

That second point carries a bit of sting these days, doesn't it? Just a beautiful picture.

Virginia, I couldn't agree more. Sorry Bob, I hope you are a good sport too :-)
And forgive an Spaniard for intruding in your election.
