Rally...

This was a very full day.
 It sure was dark when I got up...


 Fed the girls, cleaned stalls and set dinner up for tonight.
 At 11am I drove down to the Farmers Museum to get things ready for our rally.
 Vibrant colors all around.


 It did not take long.  Much simpler than our fundraiser.

When Mary and I were going door to door last week, we met a man who is affiliated with the
local Fire Museum.  He was very excited about an open house they were having today and even called to see if we would stop in.  At 1pm Mary, Annie and I made an appearance and had a tour.

 This is my favorite photo.

 Out in front of the building is a sculpture...a tribute to those who lost their lives in 9/11.





 How's that for a perfect tin ceiling?
They have done an excellent job restoring everything and are very proud of what has been accomplished.

 Got home in time to take a shower and head back down to the Farmers Museum.


 We had everything all set up in a short time
 and before we knew it, our first guest arrived.
Matthew Nafus, who is running for State Supreme Court Judge.
He had an opportunity to speak with almost everyone.
 While we were waiting for our guests, Annie's husband took the time to 
read all the political articles in the local paper.

 Cider and donuts (along with some apples) fit right in with the rustic setting.

 Once again, Gary put together a few fall flower arrangements.  
There's not much left in our gardens.
 The straw bales worked perfectly for the cider bar.














 We had an excellent crowd.

The best part of the day was having a couple stop in (lived nearby) to discuss a rumor they had heard.  The husband is a Democrat and the wife, a Republican, who said she was on the fence. They spoke to all three of us.  Our opposition is telling residents that if we are elected and become a majority on the Town Board, we are going to give Town Tax money to the Village police department.  This is an out and out lie and it shows you how far they will go to turn people against us.   The Town has nothing to do with the Village Police Department.  By the end of our conversation, both said they were going to vote for us.
The closer we get to election day, the more energized we become.
In the end, dirty politics can bite you in the butt.  Let's see if that will happen.
I wonder if our opposition will show up for the Meet the Candidates Forum.

Off duty for dinner.  Such a beautiful sunset.
Night all.
PS.
My friend Brenda gave me a painting she did of Abbe (do you remember seeing it?), as she was not quite satisfied with it.  She painted another one and entered  it in an art show.
Voila!  She won 2nd prize....and it was a big show.
I love the work she is doing!
What a spectacular painting.

  2. Love the fire museum with the tin ceiling and old truck. The painting is awesome. You had a busy day for sure! Hope the dirty politics doesn't affect your chances for being elected.

  3. Passive Aggressiveness is a terrible terrible thing - it always comes up when you least expect it. And politics is not spared. I only wish the best for you and your friends campaign -having observed your integrity over the years as blog writers - I would vote for you in a heartbeat if I could ! Good job, and good luck!
