7. Thank you! I'll miss that old wooden township hall.

And the old ladies tending the polls, who have been doing such for decades. They are always polite and their smiles attest to their enjoying their rather mundane task of enabling democracy. One could undoubtedly write many stories behind these rural voting posts. I envision a daytime soap opera, "The Township Wives of Rural Michigan". At least they'd get the recognition for their dedication that they deserve.

But it is becoming a real burden to get there. I will miss it. But from now on, I will be voting by mail.

Thank you very much for your kind response.
