Baby boomers thinking about elections and safe travel

20200729_183252In Washington state, the primary election is Tuesday. Last week, I voted on the ballot sent to me in the mail, then I took it to the drop box about 10 blocks from my house. I’m a big fan of our state’s vote-by-mail system.

There are a  number of important elections on the primary ballot: selecting a new representative in Congress, retaining our great governor, Jay Inslee; and choosing a new lieutenant governor.

On the county level, we need to vote out two right-wing county commissioners. They ran as Independents and fooled voters.

Meanwhile, my baby boomer blogger friends are writing about:

  • A big worry when a cat didn’t wake up her person, as usual.
  • How day trips are replacing vacation plans.
  • A shift that caused a boomer to wonder if you can really go home again.
  • A recommendation to take a trip to Tempe, Arizona, after seeing a virtual tour.
  • The political hype that continues to escalate as election day nears.
  • Political scandals that have caught the nation’s attention over the years.
  • An analysis of President Trump's four executive orders on prescription drug costs found they’re weak, half measures.
