Finally, it is election month so the theme for this episode had to be voting. The Furkids also wanted a song since we hadn’t had one for three weeks and someone suggested: “Sister Suffragette” from the film Mary Poppins. I didn’t tell them that the story itself didn’t exactly champion the suffragette movement (I recall being very disappointed with the ending). However, the song does advocate women’s rights – which is a primary issue in the US Midterms – so perhaps it is appropriate for November 8 after all.

The important thing is for everyone to vote in every election. No matter where you live in the world, your forebears fought for your right to vote and the only true way to honour their struggle, tenacity and achievement is by committing to vote. The only exception, the Furkids tell me, is that they know they are your favourites so there’s no need for a popular vote to determine that result!

Coins were procured via a fundraiser so the jukebox is primed and ready to go. Just press play, scroll down to the illustrated lyrics and sing along!

This week’s CODA was inspired by a tweet by @DearAuntCrabby

Women on their way to vote – be afraid, be very afraid…

  1. {{{Michelle}}} The song is always fun. The Furkids are of course our favorites. And I like the new coda. LOL. Healing Energy & moar {{{HUGS}}}

    • This song popped into my head when Kansas overwhelmingly voted against a ballot proposition to ban abortions in the state. It felt then that this issue is what would impel women and Gen Z to register and vote in the general. It certainly motivated a surge in registrations from these demographics and I feel confident that, having leapt through all the hoops necessary to register, these people will be eager to take the extra step to vote.
      Fingers and toes crossed for a blue wave!

    • I’ve had this song in my head for weeks and knew it would be great fun to do, especially the Mrs Pankharst line! ๐Ÿ’ง ๐Ÿ’ฆ ๐ŸŒŠ ๐Ÿ’™

    • The inspiration for the coda was a tweet by Aunt Crabby on Twitter. My original idea was to embed her tweet but it didn’t work because her account is locked. So I went looking for an appropriate video and voila! ๐Ÿ˜
