World Famous Voting since 1789

I am actually writing this in what you will consider tomorrow, but right now it is today. I have some pictures that I want to include in this post, so I am going to wait until tomorrow to actually upload the pictures. The good news (for me) is that I create most of the post so that you’ll have the update early.

I am in the process of getting ready for American Samoa, I have a packing list together and have beginning to collect some of the things on it. I only have to buy a few things, well, I might buy… I need new shoes, but may just wait until i get back. I am also contemplating a phone cards to take with me, as I do not know what internet access I will have.

Eric is pretty amazing, for example, this morning (Monday) he woke up early and entertained him in his crib for 45 minutes, maybe longer because I left.

[it is now Tuesday, late]
All three of us went to go vote at the farragut high school this morning. We arrive right at 8am and waited in line for about 20-30 minutes. Eric was having a grand ole time looking at all the people, plus there were a couple of other babies around that he was interested in watching. During the last presidential election I almost had a problem with voting because my address on my voter card did not match my driver’s license. Well, I had it changed that November of 2000 but then moved to Schooner lane in 2001. Fast forward to today… once again, my driver’s license did not match my voter card. I was a little worried that I would be questioned, but I never imagined that I would be denied. Good thing was they never asked to see my photo id. However, I noticed that they had my birthdate wrong, they had something like 03/14/1951, which would make me 53 years old! Mom would have been 21 months old, YIKES! well, I pointed it out to them and asked for my twenty years back. I just had to fill out a change of address form from one of the voting judges and I voted. So we will see. I doubt we will know much tonight unless a few key states really lean in a direction, but don’t count out the lawyers to make things easier…

Here is a picture that I took of the Tennessee River. I should have put a larger picture online, but you can see the Power T of Neyland stadium and the river. Baptist hospital is the building on the right. If your eyes are too bad, you can make out downtown in the background near the Power T

Speaking of Football, UT won against South Carolina and UVa and Furman had bye weeks.
