So I went on vacation in August to see my parents in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. A lot happened while I was gone. A lot. Cher did quite a bit of stumping for Hillary Clinton over the last few weeks and kept up her pressure on The Hairpiece.
Before the fundraisers
Cher Joining Hillary Clinton for Provincetown Fundraiser (Out.com)
If you’re on Hillary’s mailing list (I donated once just for the Woman Card), you got a chance to meet Cher in Provincetown. I didn't see the email when it came in, (because I disconnect completely on VACA!), so Mr. Cher Scholar entered us to win. That was just one super-husband thing he did while we were in Pennsylvania. He also power-washed and stained my Dad’s deck in 90-degree heat.
Oh, and he gave up NFL football on Direct TV so I could get The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour but more on that in another post). :-/
Here's the email for the Provincetown contest:
Hillary Clinton <email@example.com>

Mary, I’m really excited about this one: Cher will be joining me on Sunday for an event in Provincetown, Massachusetts -- and you could be there.
Will you add your name for the chance to join us?
It’s bound to be a fun time, but more than that, it’s a chance for us to check in before we reach the final weeks of this campaign. Knowing that I have the support of a team like you keeps me going out there on the trail -- so I’d like to say thank you and hear what you’ve been up to while I’ve been campaigning.
We’ll even cover your transportation and hotel, so you can relax and enjoy the evening.
Don’t miss this chance to join me (and Cher!) in Provincetown on Sunday:

I'm known for my emoji-heavy tweets, so I wanted to send You an emoji-heavy email (a.k.a mail emoji).

She’s sincere, I admire her hard work, & I like her. NO MATTER WHAT PPL THINK [sparkling heart emoji]. #ImWithHer, and I’m going to be so proud to join her at an event in Provincetown tonight.
