Hi, ya'll...
IF you haven't voted EARLY, PLEASE VOTE TODAY !!
This is one of the most important elections we have faced.

My good, sweet friend, AUNTIE, gave me full permission to add her awesome comment here....

Don't you worry, "Honey-Bun", we will be up bright and early and voting!!!

And Yes Ma'am! We vote for the LOVE of COUNTRY!

And thus, for the protection of our Constitution of our Beloved Country.

We will not allow our Beloved Country to become like European Socialist countries! Not after all the blood, sweat and tears, which have been spent, keeping it a Free Republic!

Gentle hugs,
Thank you, Auntie....I couldn't agree more with everything you say here.
... a beautiful photo taken at ARLINGTON CEMETERY by a grandlove, DREW.

"Such a beautiful picture, Drew.
I am sooo glad you had the chance to see this amazing site. "
                                    We love you, the moon and back..
 ...born in the U.S.A.
after you vote, swing by # 5015 for a slice of
warm, homemade BANANA BREAD...

I actually made it for my wonderful group of BUNCO friends.

I thought it would be great with a hot cup of DUNKIN DONUTS coffee
or a steaming hot cup of flavored TEA
about half way thru our game time.
 Into the freezer until next week...
then, it will be served warm, with Banana Nut Glaze
at our monthly BUNCO game....
I have the FINEST bunch of friends on the planet and
      xoxoxo bj


3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 cups plain white flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 Tablespoons sour cream
1 tsp. baking soda
4 ripe, mashed bananas
1 cup chopped nuts
1 stick melted butter
Mix all together, pour into two greased loaf pans...
325 degrees for 1 hour.

I tweaked the recipe by using the sugar substitutes by IDEAL
Will we wake up WEDNESDAY to a new president or will it be several
days before we know...?
"They" say it will be a close race...and that it could be
up to 10 days before we know who is leading our country.
God bless them.....

Ah-ha! Sour cream. Bet it makes all the difference in the world. I'll try it.
I too walk in the Son. You know who I'll be voting for.

Bev said...

Praying for our country. I pray that people vote with Biblical principles in mind. Sadly that is not a consideration for many.

Auntie sezzzzzz... said...

I am honored, that you wished to use my words, in your Election Day post!

It's not yet 7AM. We are off in a few minutes, to Vote. For Love Of Country!!!

Happy Election Day,

Vee said...

Auntie has some fine words to use. We are heading to the polls first thing and then we're swinging by our favorite breakfast spot for some coffee and viddles.

(Come over and see my daughter standing with the candidate she has worked so hard for this season. He's a tall drink of water and could use a prayer or two as well as lots of votes!)

As always, we will vote our values. Thank you for another great post!

Vee said...

Oh I forgot to say that your grandson took a fantastic photo. It always amazes me that the rows upon rows make such exquisite patterns depending upon the angle of the shot. This is no exception. Just wonderful!

Theresa said...

I voted early and so happy that I did! It is a rainy morning here in Georgia! My Daughter just made us a loaf of banana bread this week! We have been enjoying it with our morning coffee:) Have a blessed day dear friend! BIG HUGS!

Our Pinteresting Family said...

That sounds like a perfect recipe. Yum!

Linda (Nina's Nest) said...

Great post! With all the crazy polls, I heard someone say that the only poll he listened to is 2 Chronicles 7:14. Amen! Linda

Mary Smither said...

For Love of Country sounds so much better!

Beth said...

I have voted and I love banana bread. Save me a piece please.

Cranberry Morning said...

Oh, most definitely will be voting today. Here we've got rain and sleet and snow all in one. Icky day, but nothing will keep us from voting!

e Joops said...

That looks yummy! Will definitely cast my vote today!

Have a great day!

EastCoastLife said...

I am interested in knowing who wins.
Have a blessed day!

Ann said...

AMEN AND AMEN. I believe our country stands on a clif right now and we NEED a change. Thanks for posting such a strong message. Our Pastor brought a beautiful message yesterday on voting for biblical principals and never mentioning a nominees name.

Karen~The Barely There Primitive Bear said...

Great post! We drove down to Texas to vote in person, for early voting.....
I agree with Auntie and I love the elephant, so I saved it, thanks. Have
a great day.

Bear Hugs~Karen

Bead and Needle said...

Auntie's pretty wise...voted two weeks ago here in Vegas - glad this day is finally here! Happy Election Day Tuesday, BJ - XOXO Tanya

Sandra@Beneath this Roof, Within these Walls said...

Just got home from voting, there is a good turnout, so let's hope they are all voting the right way. Please email me a chunk of that bread! Your grandlove took a great picture.

Denise at Forest Manor said...

Amen to the above! We vote for Love of Country at our house, too. Thanks for sharing the recipe and the picture of Arlington Cemetery.


Sue (Someones Mom) said...

I voted and got my sticker. For me, it wasn't a "fun" year to vote...but, I would never skip the gift we have to do so.

I think it may be days and days before we have a winner...I think either side that loses will fight this one, unless there is a runaway winner and that looks doubtful. I do find it all very interesting, but I am so ready for some happy Christmas commercials and no more hateful ads.

Hope all is well with you. I was very busy and then very sick. I'm finally getting caught up!

Love Of Quilts said...

I voted early!

Madeline's Album said...

I got out and voted this morning after I opened your very kind gift you sent. I love it. Will find a special place to hang it and will use the brown sugar when I start my Christmas baking. I know we have not met in person but I want you to know you are a very special person to me. Have a blessed evening. Madeline

NanaDiana said...

I am voting for the LOVE myself! I hope you had a wonderful day and that God will smile down on us in the morning- xo Diana

Maria @ LSS said...

I can almost smell it. Can you toss a few slices here. :)

Happy RT2.

Mine's here.
