Two day events

It is election time, voting is soon to take place for council members. At the same time we’re asked to vote for a Member of the European Parliament, voting from a list of eleven parties, each with seven candidates, all of different persuasions, some we've never heard of, or indeed their parties. There has been little or no information about any except the main candidates. It should be interesting bearing in mind the general dissatisfaction felt about our top political parties. I have voted already because we have postal votes, a good thing because my mind is cluttered with thoughts about tomorrow’s birthday.

Yes folks, it’s here, well it will be tomorrow. The big day, or rather the BIG birthday will be reported on after the event, with photographs if daughter manages to get some. I can’t believe I have reached this grand age but am enjoying the looks of shock on people’s faces when they hear which birthday it is. Apparently I don’t look much more than seventeen.... yeah and if you believe that, you’ll believe anything. I’m not having a cake ‘cause it would cost too much to decorate with seventeen candles ... anyway, who wants cake when there’s wine to be had? 

Catch y’all later. *raising glass* Cheers!  Or, as they say in Italy 'Buon compleanno'.
Please note RECOMMENDATIONS panel at top of side bar

That's because you have such a youthful, upbeat, and progressive mind and attitude. I know we've never met in person, but I always think of you as being ageless. And I really mean that.

Have a faaaaaabulous seventeenth birthday tomorrow, dear lady.

*raising glass*


X to you and Joe!

happy early birthday!
its not every day you turn 21 as well...smiles...

there is a general dissatisfaction here in the states as well with the political parties...but the system is such that an alternative wont get a chance any time soon...

Valerie said...

Ranita, I will do my best to get photographs of the gathering. Thank you for your birthday wishes.

Joseph... Oooh and there was me thinking you were asleep... grins.

Valerie said...

Ron, I'm singing along with you lol. I shall be eternally grateful for your comment about me being 'ageless' ... what a lovely thought. Thank you, I can always rely on you to cheer me up ((Ron))

Valerie said...

Brian, thank you very much. You know, you're too, too clever. How on earth did you guess my age... grins.

I guess we all have the same problems with regard to our political systems.
