America - GO and VOTE!!!!

What an exciting day for us Americans. We will either have an African American President Elect or a Female Vice President elect! It is great to see people out there waiting in line to go and vote. I hope all of you in the US take part in this historical election. As for me, I will be going out later with my girls and letting them watch me vote. Then, we'll be off to the library! In the meantime, I will leave you with a story of two hapless folk from the Nogwood Forest.....
Bertha is late... She's in her Coven finery and even managed to find the big hatted hat she wears every 4 years. No, she isn't off to the monthly Witches's Cauldron, but she is flying off to her voting polling place!

However, her broom and her have had a fundamental difference with the candidates, and it seems to want to take off without her.... Bertha sticks out her tongue in concentration as she gets a leg onto the broom. The whole time, she's wondering why she ate ALL the Halloween candy.... It's all gone to her butt and making it even harder to mount the wayward broom....
Will Bertha make it? I sure hope so!

Peter was once a young man who never listened to his mother. She always told him to not eat so many pumpkin seeds, because pumpkins would grow out of his ears. He laughed at her and said, "I'm Peter. Peter Pumpkin Eater. Nothing will happen." But it did... And at the worst time too! He needs a picture ID at his voting place, and he hasn't had time to change his Driver's License. Let's face it - it's almost impossible to drive with a pumpkin head!
Will Peter Punkin' Head vote? I have faith he will!
The question is-- Will you?
