Vote Yes on 1. It matters to this family.
"Where are you going with that pencil, Farmer Small?" I asked.
"I'm going to vote," he said. 
    "I didn't know you were registered to vote." 
    " I did it when I was trick or treating. The lady at town hall helped me." he said. 
    "So why do you need the pencil?" 
    "The lady at town hall said I could write in anyone I want if I didn't like the choices."
     "Who would you write in?" 
      "Me," he said, " I'm not doing much this winter so I thought I'd hold office." 
    I could see where that might appeal to him. The zumba classes hadn't worked out  and other than tend to a few potted herbs, there wasn't a lot for him to do around the house.  
     "Ok," I said. 
    "Can you help me?" he asked. 
    "With what?" 
    "How do you spell Farmer Small?" he asked. 
    "G-R-U-M-P-Y F-A-R-M-E-R." 
    It took him a long time to work out the letters.  I think I found a winter activity for  Farmer Small.
