Today is The American Election .We have been invited out to supper tonight-.The menu is enchiladas, salad,cookies and chocolate chip pumpkin bread . Sounds good .Tried to find hersheys and root beer to take, can’t find them anywhere.
How I remember this day four years ago . We had an American student,Kerry, staying with us .Every night ,on the run up to the election ,she would tell us who had the edge , which were safe seats ,which weren’t etc etc .To be honest I sort of switched off .Then Obama won , and she went crazy , she was so happy . We were happy too, because Obama won and because she was happy . I took it all for granted , dancing round the kitchen and being recklessly happy .Wish I could turn the clocks back .
Why Oh why , was Rosie taken from us ?
