Once of my favorite bloggers, The Chubby Chatterbox, is holding a really neat give away on his blog site. Stephen, as he is also called, is a fine artist but is also a really good story teller. His beautiful painting below is what is up for grabs but his site is well worth the visit even with no prize attached. Check it out.

OK, now for "hang in there." In one more day, if you haven't all ready, we can all cast our ballot and shed ourselves of the most toxic election I have seen in my 56 years of voting. Never has our democratic system give me such a belly ache along with overpowering feelings of disgust and dread. Occasionally in the past I have voted for the lesser of two evils but most often there is a candidate I am behind. This time I am a card carrying member and willing backer of "her" but it has still been a painful process.
Once you have cast your vote and seen the results, I hope you won't feel the need to pack your bags. There is always recourse. I tend to hang around regardless.
If the person you don't want is elected, remember you still have a voice via e-mails and phone calls to your congressional men and women. Use that power, in fact, use it even if your person of choice is the winner. Also remember there are mid-term elections that will need our input.
Democracy may be a ghastly pain at times but it is the best system out there and we are so lucky to have the opportunity to voice our wishes and have them count--even if we do need aspirin, Rolaids, and meditation to make it through.
Hang in, it really will be over soon.
