Waiting for Ice Cream!
Art and I walked down to our polling place at 9:30 AM and voted for the first time in Hawaii. There were very few people there. Apparently most people had voted at 7:00 AM or voted early. I thanked all the precinct workers for their hard work. We're hoping that Hawaii's favored son will win and that we'll have the first one time Kamaaina (local person)become president.
The one wonderful thing about living here is that we won't have to stay up too, too late to get the election results.
We went out and bought some triple chocolate ice cream to celebrate Barack's win or to drown our sorrows in. I've got all my fingers and toes crossed. This is historic!
