At first light I went out to go check the rain gauge to see how much rain we received during what sounded as a wet dark hour era.  Lo and behold this is what caught my eye – an electoral flat tyre.


No comments on my reaction or my vocabulary improvement when I dealt with the matter in the afternoon. Anyway, we went to our polling station in my wife’s car which can be interpreted as that I was chauffeur driven to go exercise my voting right.



Hoping that midmorning would be a quiet time we were surprised by the number of people people waiting in line at the voting station.


Voters came in all sizes and shapes and it was almost if there was a carnival atmosphere prevailing and no complaining over the long waiting time ahead.


Even pooches came to vote.


Officials scanning an ID book to make sure the voter is registered to vote at the particular voting station.


Today will be spent mostly looking at the results and then as of tomorrow life will be back to normal.

Enjoy a super day.

PS.  Took us just on an hour before our patriotic duty was done.
