Hello Saturday my friends. This is the Five Points apartment complex on the north shore of Chattanooga. It’s one of many apartment and condominium developments here.
The weather today is quite nice but we could use some rain. Enjoy your Saturday good people.
The masked voter. The pandemic can’t stop me from going to the polls. My polling precinct was very careful and practiced social distance protocols.
Today is the state primary election in Tennessee. Several state and local races will be on the ballot including a race for one of the US Senate seats and a bunch of school board races in the county in which I live. Voting is a responsibility and I hope everyone takes it seriously when they can vote no matter where they live. Democracy is a good thing.
Coronavirus has caused life to be paused and events to be cancelled such as music festivals. Every June the Riverbend Festival is held in my hometown of Chattanooga, Tennessee and this years event was postponed and then cancelled. Who knows when these sort of events will be held again. I can wait until life is more stable and secure before going back to concerts and sporting events again.
