President Elect Spotty

Thanks to everyone out there that voted. We have a new President Elect of Stuffed Animals in our household and it is Spotty Dog. I'm unsure whether Hippo will challenge the results since it was so close. At the same time, since it was so close you can feel your vote did count and made a difference. One vote in the other direction and it would have been a tie. Spotty doesn't officially take over until Saturday according to Quinn. Quinn just learned the other day that Obama, while elected, is not the official potus yet and won't be until January and as such Spotty doesn't take over immediately (which begs the question as to which stuffed animal is the current President, because I don't know that I've ever been told that piece of information).

And what a difference a couple of weeks makes. I took the above image in the backyard just three weeks ago. There was still lots of green. The one below I took in the backyard just over a week ago. If I took a shot now it would mostly barren trees.

I voted for Spotty at least once so I expect a position in his administration - preferably ambassador to someplace in the Caribbean with good sailing.
