    Default Update on Mascot and other candidates!

    Hi Folks,

    A choice has been made! I don't want to say anything to give it away since no one has posted anything yet!
    I do want to say for all those worried about the three cats.
    All three have homes!!!! The summit cat and the other two have been adopted!
    One went home yesterday and the other application has been approved. And of course the Electoral College choice will leave for the summit on Weds.

    And a side note... three kittens and the famous Tripod Tom(the three legged cat) also went home.. It's been a great week!

    Again...
    It is always an amazing thing when two non-profits can work together to raise awareness for their organization and the important work both strive to accomplish.

    A big thanks goes to Virginia Moore(former Windswept Editor) the acting Executive Director of CAHS and Scot Henley, Executive Director of the MW Obs.

    A huge thank you to the award winning, Hope Ullman, for writing the Candidates' Platforms.

    I have worked for both orgs(the Obs, as a temporary fill in) and I can honestly say the staff of both places are the nicest, hardest working, dedicated professionals I have ever met!

    This was so much fun... the voters, media coverage, emails, working together .... WOW!!!

    It took them a while, but the observers finally decided who to adopt. Whoever it is will surely be mistaken for a mountain goat. Who knows what amazing weather this new companion will witness in their tenure atop the rock pile.

    Hope, you did a fantastic job with the platforms! I am sure everyone will agree that those write-ups put us all in the primary spirit.

    I am sure the hard working, dedicated professionals now includes a new summit cat. The radar map shows that we are preparing the summit with snow to greet the new Top Cat on Wednesday!

    And it is wonderful news the other two cats have homes already also.

    We are not sure that Marty is to be the summit cat. The staff might say that a different one would get the position.

    Default Sound familiar?

    "Let's not forget the lesson we learned in the last presidential election, that winning the popular vote doesn't necessarily put you in the whitehouse."

    Your response:

    "KD, the election was not even close. Even with a few folks fudging in extra votes, Marty was the clear winner. As long as he does not bite an observer in the interview, he has it in the bag - bed - and beyond."

    Just keepin' things honest here!

    I would want to say Marty was chosen but no one knows what went down at the shelter. I'm sure they went in with an open mind and with the thought of which one would suit the obs the best. After all, they are the ones who will have to live with the cat.

    Is there really any BAD weather???
