Friday 55


 Okay, so it's already Friday morning but now that Hurricane Irene is passing me by, I had time for a 55.  Make sure you share yours with the g-man.   And if you're in Irene's path, I'm thinking good thoughts for you!


Good enough to cook the meals.
Good enough to clean the house.
Good enough to raise the kids.
Good enough to sew or read.

Sorry ladies, that’s all you’re good for.

Until 91 years ago today, when you earned the right to vote.

So ladies, kindly be good enough to use that power in 2012.



Our local League of Women Voters is today celebrating the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote.  Bet those good ol' boys didn't think we'd use it, much less run for office and win.

Happy birthday 19th amendment. Here's hoping we'll vote a woman into that big white house in my lifetime. Having a female dominated congress might be nice too--something representative of the population.

Excellent 55, Hope! And I'm glad to hear Irene is sliding past. No damage?

Just think where we'd be today if there was no 19th? Scary thought...

glad irene is passing you by, too, sugar! keeping good thoughts for all our pals along the coast! xoxoxoxo

re the 19th, we'd better step-up because i'm afraid some of these yahoos just might think they can undo it! xoxoxo

i hope that everyone uses that right to vote...but it is great to celebrate the freedoms that were granted...sad that it was not set up that way in the first place..

I'm all over it. My vote might disappear in the sea of votes, but I'm doing it.

Amazing that it took til 1920 for that to happen, but thank goodness it finally did! Great 55 & thanks for stopping by my post today too. :)

Written with a PoW! An excellent and soulful reminder of what we gained and must nurture/celebrate. I no longer feel as Nara does, however. Not just "a woman" will do, and that's all we have out there on the current scene. Too crazy and absolutely not good enough!

Let's hear it for the ladies! Yay!
