1. In Montana, the democratic ballot was FULL

of wonderful candidates to vote for. I walked my ballot to the elections office last week. It felt great.

2. It was!

I had to go to the USPS for a money order and drop off my ballot but while I was standing in line, along-time friend who works at the county registrar got in line behind me and was there to collect ballots so I just handed mine to her. There were quite a few ballots to collect. I mentioned that it was an impressive amount but she and the postal clerk both said it was four tote bags of them the day before!

Mail-in ballots are the way to get more people to vote.

3. I was happy to see postage included

on our ballot envelopes. Governor Bullock wasnít pulling any punches with this primary, was he? Speaking of his Senate race, I am finally seeing some anti Daines ads on TV. Itís about time. I was getting sick of flipping off the tv while Iím cooking dinner when MSNBC is showing Daines and Gianforte ads.

4. That was one thing I noticed immediately...

I always would use two stamps just in case. I don't have a teevee so I livestream the news... no local political ads. I can imagine how annoying it has been, that louse of a House Rep's voice is like fingernails on a chalkboard for me so I am not missing that part. I do see some of the national ads but I see most political ads on DU!

Had a weird half hour a bit ago. I had gone to town to get groceries and upon my return I saw the mares out in the backyard which they are on occasion. Landlady was working in the pasture when I left so I quick-glanced the two gates that I could see and they were secure so there was little chance they would get out. I went inside, had lunch and went back outside to do some stuff and the mares were out in the vegetable garden in the front yard totally unsecured! That wasn't right so I started looking for the landlady and couldn't find her, all her vehicles were here so I was wondering why the "girls" were out. I decided she might be in trouble out in the pasture, obscured by trees, so I started out there only to find one of the gates wide open. So I shooed the girls back into the corral and went on a search for their mom. All the house doors were closed like she wasn't home so I was getting worried. I went down the road and got the mail and figured that if I put her mail in between the doors, the dog will come to the door if she's there. Sure enough, the dog, followed by her mom, came to greet me. She had become too hot and went inside and fell asleep, in her overheatedness didn't realize the gate was left open. Fortunately the girls hadn't been out long and didn't get any farther than the raspberry patch but I was kind getting a little freaked out. I was impressed with how well the horses followed my commands, they don't really know me yet.

Thankfully, all is well.

I am looking forward to election results tonight.

5. Well she is lucky to have you keep an eye out.

Coincidentally, I was at a friendís place last night and their cows jumped their enclosure and headed for the river bottom. The Clark Fork is at flood stage so it all hands on deck rounding up cows!

I stream all our tv too and donít get local channels. I see the Gianforte and Daines ads on MSNBC and it pisses me off. I donít know where to watch election results tonight. Maybe itíll be on local public radio. Our elections center was mobbed today. I drive past it to and from work. I was happy to see it so busy. Fingers crossed Montana turns a little more blue. 🤞
