early vote on Halloween

I voted in early voting this morning. I thought it might be busy, but the line proved minimal to non-existent. I am of the less-popular party in my area, but I like to have my vote recorded nonetheless.

During lunch I went to the park. I watched an American kestrel hunting, including a fair bit of hovering in mid-air. The weather was pleasantly chilly.

After work, I stopped at Kroger's and got Halloween candy. Then I took Beatrice for a walk. We saw two mockingbirds, and two trick or treaters. When my wife got home, she brought a fine pre-cooked roasted chicken.

Our Halloween turnout was much lower than usual. We had ~ 14 trick-or-treaters. We watched old episodes of the TV show Buffy the Vampire Slayer. We had a good evening. A busy weekend awaits.
