voted for the first time in their life..Margaret is 77, and Mary is 63, I thought she was younger..When they got through I put their I Voted sticker on them and we hugged each other and there wasn't a dry eye in the place..They both agreed that if Obama doesn't win they will be pissed...Life is good!
When I was in the store today this couple came in and they're regulars and Tom and I help them put their minutes on their phones all the time..So I was talking to the wife and I said did you think 50 years ago you would be voting for a black man for President?(they are African/American.in their 80's). She said 'Oh, child it was something I never even thought about, we were just hoping no one would kill us, voting wasn't even something we thought about..and to vote for a back man..Oh child, it makes me so proud.' So I took off my Obama button and told her I think you need it more than me, and pinned it on her little sweater. I got the first of a bunch of great hugs of the day. I have a grin on my face that just will not go away.
Now I'm so nervous if I had to spit, I'd have to borrow some.
