Poll: Pet owners favor McCain

From George Washington's foxhound "Drunkard" to George W. Bush's terriers "Barney" and "Miss Beazley," pets are a longtime presidential tradition for which the presumed Republican nominee seems well prepared, with more than a dozen.

Thanks to Andrea for this article about pet owners, especially dog owners, leaning toward the pet-owning John McCain. Obama has apparently promised his kids a dog once the campaign's over. :-)

Gentleman Jack

What a pleasant surprise! When I was leaving CFCU after depositing a check this morning, I held open the door for a smartly dressed gentleman only to discover that was no gentleman, it was Jack! Some of you probably remember him from his bartending days at [info]Willow or from one of my Memorial Day parties a couple of years ago. For a while, I was running into Jack a lot at the [info]Lincoln Street Diner, but that'll be happening less and less! He's sold all his property downtown and gotten out of the landlord game, and just had a purchase offer accepted on a house in West Danby!

He says we'll probably still see him around town, since he can't imagine there's that much nightlife in West Danby.

That could change... :-)
