i turn around and i’m back in the game …
I missed you while I was out of town, but I have to give a big thanks to Ashton for filling in from Italy with a post last week. It didn’t go out over the email, so I included it below – DOUBLE EMAIL TODAY!!
It did post to glenwoodagency.com/blog and went out over facebook. You can always ‘like’ Glenwood Agency on Facebook if you want to make sure you don’t miss out next time 🙂

First things first, and I know you missed me at this time of year, but have you voted yet?? I mean, I have. From Italy. And if I can do it – you can do it. Don’t want to stand in line? Vote early. Really don’t want to stand in line – vote absentee. Whatever you do, figure out your districts, your candidates, and your issues – and vote.
