This morning we attended a free breakfast at the West Side Community Center, intended to lure voters in for a rousing speech and then a parade to the courthouse for early voting. It looked to me like the event was attended mostly by volunteers with only a few disenfranchised voters, but we had a good time, and it was standing room only, so we could scarcely have handled more people.
In the afternoon, Mom and I went to Eastland to launder my sleeping bag and buy me some new walking shoes, a belated birthday present. After dinner, Mom and I tuned up our 'harps and went to an "acoustic jam" at a friend's house. There were two other autoharpists there as well!
