Good day friends,
I hope everybody had a good nights rest.
We got up very early this morning to go to the voting polls. What a joke!
Dad and I have been bombarded by telephone calls over the past few weeks telling us where we are registered to vote. Well this morning dad and I went to our designated voting station. We got there before the voting polls open. In the past the IEC officials took the pensioners out of the line and showed them indoors where there is chairs for them to sit. Well not at our voting station.
First of all we stood in the wind for more than half an hour. Then when we got inside we waited another half an hour in line before we went into the voting hall. The person who was suppose to look for my surname looked for Kuhn under the M’s. One should think that a person dealing with surnames must be able to read properly and also know the alphabet. In the end I had to tell him where to find my surname. I was not very impressed… After voting I went outside and dad was waiting for me.
When I reached dad he told me that he is not registered to vote here. This after more than one person who phoned him told him this is his voting station. On our way to the car and dad clearly ranting and raving over the incompetence of the people. The next moment I saw dad falling and he ended up face down on the tar. Three grown men rushed to help dad up and I did a quick survey of wounds and if anything is broken.
He had a headwound that was bleeding a lot on the way home, but I always have a sealed packet of tissues in my pocket and gave dad one to please keep it on the wound till we get home. When we got home we had a closer look and after pulling up his jeans leg we saw a open gash on his knee. His jeans does not even have a scratch or a tear. I cleaned his wounds and put on some Betadine ointment and stayed with him for a while just to see if he is sleepy. I will keep a close eye on him today.
According to the weather forecast, we are having a cold, wet and windy Spring day. With a maximum temperature of 17°C and winds up to 39 km/h.
On my To-Do List for today.
- Edit Grand Tour of Scotland
- Schedule posts for next week
- Prepare dinner
Well, that is it for now friends. Thank you for all your support and for taking the time to look at my posts. I am truly grateful for every view, like, and comment I receive.
Have a fabulous day.

I hope your Dad is OK! Those are some nasty looking contusions.

Thank you, Yernasia.
So sorry about your dad’s fall. Though the wounds all seem superficial, we do tend to be shaken up a bit afterwards and he’ll probably feel sore next few days. But he has a great daughter to look after him! 😉
Thank you, Marina. Yes, sore and blue for the next few days. Dad takes a long time to heal since he was diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis in 2017.
Patience and may it be a swifter healing regardless.
