We are near the stage, waiting for the First Lady.

TD Garden in Boston is full and people are excited! We thousands are about to have an intimate conversation with Michelle Obama. ❤️❤️❤️

Hubby took my picture with her life-sized poster in the lobby. Dang, she makes me look fat. Oh well, I don't mind.

Free Solo: great movie

Documentary about Alex Honnold, first and only person to climb El Capitan (3,000+ ft) without ropes. So scary I had to close my eyes at times. Very well done.

After growing tomatoes 40 years, I learned something new.

Tomatoes can sprout?! Three tomatoes we cut open today looked like this. (These are internet photos, not my tomatoes.)

In the year 1944, I was...

Be still my heart! I got an email from Willie Nelson.

I'm sure it came from his heart and meant that he wants to meet me for a drink somewhere! (Slaps own face) OK, just kidding, but he did email me about Beto so I gave a few more dollars from up here in Mass.

Right on cue, my MAGA sister is having a fangurl fit.

"President Trump is coming to Columbia! He's flying into the Columbia Regional Airport on Thursday, 11/1 and having a rally at the Airport @ 6:30pm. We have free tickets but not sure if we will be able to go. They have Trump stands all over the place selling t-shirts, and hats, etc. I want to get one! 😊"

She knows my opinion and I just reminded her again how despicable this cruel crazy man is. That's it, we've sparred as usual, and now it's back to detente.

She's a fundamentalist and not well educated. I will not break with her; I've already lost one sister to cancer, and this one is a cancer survivor. But there is no hope, no hope at all, that these people will change.

I was FIRST to vote! But what a mess.

I voted at the little library named after Tip O'Neill. It was supposed to start at noon. The room was 14' x 20' and it held a conference table, eight voting booths, a desk, seven chairs, a printer, scanners, ballot box, supplies, and five people who were just setting up and figuring out what to do.

As the line grew behind me, everybody was calm and jovial, but at 12:15 some people left. After much discussion, they handed me a ballot and I filled it in. But I couldn't put it in the box without an envelope that wasn't there. A police officer arrived with two boxes of 500 envelopes each. I got one and was told I had to stand there and fill out the info on it by hand, but there was no place to stand and the pens weren't working on the envelopes. Then I had to place a sticker across it to seal it. I finally put it in the box!

It was all worth it. I'm going to assume my ballot was properly handled and my straight D ticket will count. Yay!

Well, damn. If I hadn't just splurged on

Jingle Ball tickets for the grandkids in December, hubby and I might have been able to go to a World Series game. I was checking out ticket prices at 6am and watched cheapest seats go up $100 as I browsed. I'm just not going to pay close to $2,000 (with fees) to sit where we can't see the ball anyway.

We'll see it better on TV.

How could I possibly have just gotten a Ted Cruz fundraising email?

Did they steal Beto's donor lists? I don't live in Texas.

OMG! A baby has been named after me!

My granddaughter just had a baby an hour ago and when I asked my son her name, he said Octavia Gayle! Mine is the second name. I am shocked--SHOCKED, I tell you, by how much this means to me. She is my tenth great-grandchild.

Ok, now I know why people do this. I have a strong urge to give her gifts and favor her forever. Lol
