Everyone I know has Election Fatigue.  Between tomorrow’s election, COVID, and the onset of winter, I HAVE HAD IT!   Will we elect the party of the donkey or the party of the elephant?  It matters and I want this election to be over and done with—after all the votes have been fairly counted.


To keep a serious subject a bit light—instead of a gloomy blog, I planned to post photos of a donkey and an elephant—the animal representations of the Democrats and Republicans.  Unfortunately, even that was fatiguing.  There aren’t any donkeys pics in our photo stash, so a zebra will have to do (sorry, zebra).

Finally, even if you, too, are fatigued–if you haven’t already, make sure you vote by Tuesday.    I never thought we would be in this situation, but vote because OUR DEMOCRACY DEPENDS ON IT.
