An Election Day Nerve Calmer

I know that we're not on all on the same page politically, but think we can all agree that we're ready for this long race to be over.

I can't believe the amount of anxiety this election has caused me, and I know I'm not alone here, so I thought I would attempt calm our frayed nerves and lower a few blood pressure points by posting one giant heap of cute.

Here you go. I do hope it helps.


Happy Valentine's Day from Vivienne and Theodore Spooner.

  1. That certainly helped. Whenever I go to visit a MD, I always spend my waiting time thinking about IBKC kitten pictures. Last time at the cardiologist, Blood Pressure was 110/72! Thank you IBKC!

  10. Anything that starts with two Spooners spooning and includes Harlan Lovejoy chomping on his tail is going to lower my blood pressure today.
