Afghanistan.   ;D

Was your ballot delivered in a timely manner?  There were some states that didn't meet mailing the deadline......

1/2 mile more or less.  A brisk walk usually but drove today since I had to get stuff for lunch.
Should one a man of wisdom meet
who points out faults and gives reproof,
who lays a hidden treasure bare,
with such a sage should one consort.
Consorting so is one enriched
and never in decline.

Yeah Texas did a good enough job of getting to my residence in Germany that my wife had time to send it to me here and I was able to send it out.  It had to be postmarked no later than today.  I sent it two weeks ago.

My voting place is about three miles away by road, probably about a mile as the crow files

About six miles, round trip, but today I went to vote from work (about 5 miles one-way), then went home, then back to work.
