If you are an email subscriber to the blog Cousins, you have already read today's post. Last week I must have pushed the publish button which is right next to the save button. See what happens when I take a break. I have to be retrained. So, the following post was intended for November 7, 2016. Read it again if you wish. You may find that I made a couple of corrections.
Well, tomorrow is the big day. Election Day 2016. Looking back at Mary's 2000 calendar, I see the date was November 7 when Mom voted in 2000. I say "Mom" because I don't know if my father ever voted.

As I listen to the commentators make reference to the problems in the 2000 election, I enjoyed reading the notes of an ordinary citizen
( my mom) making note of votes being recounted. What will 2016 bring? How much of it would have appeared in mom's calendar if she were still with us.
