Election Day

Dear Frankie,

We could not have asked for a more forward-thinking, creative, innovative, and inclusive first mayor of Blogville.  I am honored to be a resident under your reign.  For this, we thank you.

Love, Finnackles

Dear Madi,

I am thrilled that you are the incoming mayor!  (Or, at least I think you are going to be after the vote today!)  And I could not be more excited to (let the cat out of the bag that I am going to be in the cabinet once you are sworn in) be asked to be the Director of Parks and Recreation in your mayoral cabinet!!!  Thank you for bestowing this honor to me!  I shall do you and your term proud by showcasing the finest Blogville-critter friendly places around.

But Madi?  I have something that I want to tell you – we are moving into winter here in NY, so we may not be making as many park visits now.  But I promise to resume my visits on warmer days and in the spring!

And just to let you know how seriously I am taking this coveted position, I am including some pics of my most favorite park pictures so far in my young life.

Love, Finnackles

    Hello Finn. I found you again. Arrrrrrrrrrrroooo.

    I didn’t know Madi was running for Major of Blogville. I don’t know her, but will have to look her up. I already did a write-in for Stuart.

    Great park pictures Finn. You wouldn’t by any chance be looking for a UK-based assistant would you?
