I hadn’t planned on voting today, but I am glad I did (instead of waiting until next Tuesday as I had planned). Jessica Farrar was at the voting site and I got to say hello, shake her hand and thank her. (That’s my yard sign showing my support for her.) The line was really long, but it was even long by the time they closed the doors at 7. I waited in line for an hour and a half. I have never waited that long ever, not even close to that. There were all sorts of people there and everyone in line around me was very friendly, and 100% Democrats. I felt really sorry for the poll workers. They all seemed terribly tired.
Today started off very early. The boys had their appointment at S.N.A.P. to get fixed.
Last pic before their trip. (Or the two headed puppy!)
They were very scared. I waited in line while R stayed with them in the car. At one point a woman came out the door and very nearly lost the cat she was holding in her arms. Another woman had a jacket and she and I got the cat in it (she was scratching and clawing, poor thing). I loaned her one of our carriers to keep the cat in until her husband got there with their carrier. At the last minute, we got the boys out. R had Emiliano, and his little heart was racing. Murphy curled up into a ball in my arms and tucked his head on my shoulder, hiding in my hair. Murphy weighed in at 22 lbs. and Emiliano is a whopping 27 lbs.
They’re back home now, heavily medicated, and with those terrible huge plastic collars around their heads. I feel so sorry for them. But by this time next week, they’ll be all better.
