We walked to Trader Joe's this morning. The sun was shining. The amble served as exercise and was also useful, because we bought some groceries that we'll need for NCW's famous tater tot hot dish. We'll be making it this time with sweet potato tots. It's the first time I'll be enjoying this particular recipe. Then we'll be watching the results of 2014's election.
I've featured this statue? of Winnie the Pooh carved from an old dead elm tree before. It was missing for maintenance for a while, but it's back now and it was decorated for Halloween. It's still decorated four days after the Halloween festivities. We encountered it on our walk back from Trader Joe's this morning. The people who own it also have a Little Free Library in their yard.
There were fewer lawn signs this election season than last, but there were some over-achievers. These signs festooned the lawn of one of my neighbors. This is a strongly blue district and all the signs support candidates from the blue side of the ballot. But it's good to know that there is some political emotion running through this "midterm" election.
My polling place wasn't very busy when I visited this morning. I cast my ballot and collected my "I Voted" sticker.
The bridge for today is a minor span that carries the traffic on Lexington Avenue over a bike/hike trail in Como Park.
