Happy Sunday! One thing I love about autumn/fall in Canberra, Australia, is the changing colors of the falling leaves. The pink and purple leaves are definitely my favorite of all the fall colors. Yesterday in Australia we voted in our Federal Election (voting is compulsory in Australia). There are prepolling and postal voting options, and the big day is Saturday when we visit a local school to get our name marked on the Electoral Roll (to avoid a fine) and exercise our democratic right to vote. The tradition is to vote and be rewarded for turning up by purchasing a democracy sausage (usually a fund raising activity for the school). Yesterday in our Christian Romance Reader Gathering Facebook Group I promised I’d share some democracy sausage photos in my post here today. Many thanks to our reader friend, Jenny Blake, for sending me two photos from her South Australian town. My family enjoyed our democracy sausages yesterday, although we were disappointed there was no option to have onions added on top of the beef sausage with tomato sauce (ketchup) wrapped in a slice of white bread. Have you heard of our Aussie sausage sandwiches and/or democracy sausages? Are you an onions or no onions person (sliced brown onions that are grilled on the bbq or fried in a pan)?
