Friday I found out that I’ll be working at my village hall as an Early Voting judge for the next few weeks. It’s long hours (7:30 am – 7:30 pm) from today till Nov. 2nd. Then on the 3rd, Election Day, I’ll work somewhere else from 5 am till 8:30 pm or so. I’m lucky that the Census ended when it did.

After the election, I’ll be unemployed and looking for something new.

I got to see another classic film, Man of the World with William Powell of The Thin Man fame and Carole Lombard. I give it a thumbs up.

Reverse Parades

Here are some home decorations from the Northfield and Northbrook 4th of July Reverse Parades. Due to CCP Virus restrictions, rather than the usual 4th of July festivities, some towns hosted Reverse Parades. These neighboring communities had Reverse Parades where people decorate their homes and spectators can walk, ride or drive by to enjoy them.

Participants vie for gift card prizes from local businesses. In Northfield, winners are chosen by popular vote. You must live in Northfield to vote. Northbrook has a panel of judges consisting of the Police Chief, Fire Marshall, school principals, the Library Director, etc.

More from the home shown above. On the table they had hand sanitizer, and free flags or lollipops.

I like what they did with the stairs.
