Halloween and Free stuff for Voting today.

Many asked, now all can see. My son was a king for Halloween. We decorated the crown together. I made the cape and the scepter, he picked out the crushed velvet 'dress' at the Salvation Army Family Store that I modified into a king's costume. A turtle neck for warmth and to keep the ruffles from scratching, a pair of dress pants and Viola! a King.  Never say he is wearing a dress - he'll deny it loudly and inform you, "it's a king's costume!"

Isn't he handsome, all curls and dimples.

One last thing...

I voted! Did you?
Go get yourself a new president. 
If you don't make your voice heard you can't complain if you don't like the outcome. If you have voted and don't like the outcome, suck it up. This is the best system out there.

Plus this year with this handy dandy sticker they give you for voting you can go and get yourself FREE stuff!

According to the Chicago Tribune if you vote your coffee break is free.
Starbucks Corp. is offering a free cup of brewed coffee to anyone who asks on Tuesday, while Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Inc. is giving away star-shaped doughnuts. Ice cream maker Ben and Jerry's is offering a free scoop as part of a celebration of the election.
There's also the possibility of free food from Chick-fil-A restaurants.

According to the Fox station in Kansas City you can get
• Free body piercing at Dyed Hyde Tattoo and Body Piercing in Kirksville, Mo.
• Attend a Free George Wallace show at The Flamingo on the Las Vegas Strip. Good until Nov. 11.
• Enjoy a Free McCoy's beer at McCoy's.

According to MSNBC you can even get sex toys for voting. What a country.
Babeland, with stores in New York, Los Angeles and Seattle, is offering a pair of self-gratifying incentives for voters who present their registration cards, ballot stubs or “word of honor” that they voted next Tuesday.
The rewards are not-so-subtle reminders of this year’s campaign rhetoric. For men, it’s the “Maverick,” a "sleeve" for self-pleasuring. According to a press release, “He’s always there to lend a hand, he works for every man, and he bucks the status quo.” Women can choose the “Silver Bullet” mini-vibrator, which is “a magical solution to difficult problems” and “a great stress-reliever during these troubled economic times!” The promotion lasts through Nov. 11.

How any of these things has anything to do with electing public officials is beyond me but if you are thirsty, hungry or ..., now you know what to do — vote.
