Texas Two Step

The lady got home really, really late Tuesday night, it was almost 11 pm. Why?! I wanted to know as I jumped up and down in front of her (I never actually touch her, so I wasn't jumping ON her). She explained she had to do the Texas Two Step and go caucus for the Democratic Presidential nominee. Here she is with neighbor Judy and our buddy Baby Grace!


I wondered why I couldn't go if Baby Grace could...hmm I sense a conspiracy. And for those of you that want to know what the Texas Two Step is, this is all I can explain, cause it is strange. The Democrats go and vote for who they want to be the Democratic Presidential Candidate, and from that vote a set number of delegates are awarded to each candidate. Then they go back that night and caucus, meaning a bunch of people sit in a room, write down who they want and then they send people to the county caucus, then the state caucus and then more delegates are awarded to each Democratic candidate. (Okay, like i said, I don't get it, but the lady kept saying she got to legally vote twice!) Whatever, all I know is she wasn't home.
