Happy Thanksgiving

A cautious step forward and a wary eye looking back, this wild turkey is not a bad image for the times. Wary times or not, there is much to be thankful for and it is good to pause and count our blessings. Happy Thanksgiving!

Election Day

When we first moved to Pasadena, our polling place was at the old mortuary at Orange Grove and Mentor. I know votes count the same no matter where they are cast, but entering a mortuary to vote just kind of messed with the symbolism of the whole day. I didn't like it.

I much prefer voting at Victory Park. You can't get a more appropriate polling place.

Had a double privilege today. I did my voting early today, then later traveled out to my dad's to help him cast his votes.
