"Down the Drain With Jane"

It was, “Hello Dolly!” and “Good bye Dolly!” If you only got a spit spat and sput from Dolly, it was better than a dust storm!

I was thinking the other day; don’t think every day, as it's way too tiring! Who made the decision that the Democrats would be the donkeys and who made the decision that the Republican Party would be an elephant. If I were picking a mascot, it sure wouldn’t be a donkey or elephant. It would be like a bulldog and a stallion. While a donkey is known to be on the stubborn side and the elephant on the large size, I find nothing to support either political party of these two mascots. I could have ‘google’ this on the internet, but just thinking about it was much funnier.

You see some years ago, a fat man with big ears wanted to run for president and his wife was a real whiner for remembering every little thing that happened to her. So these two said, “We’re Republicans and some say I’m as big as an elephant and you can remember like an elephant—so we’re the Republican Elephants!

In that same year there was rather a cocky old man, that was stubborn as all get outs and his wife was named Jenny and his name was Jack. They wanted a Democratic life and he, too wanted to be president. And seeing as how the big fat man with the big ears was running as a Republican Elephant. He’s just run as a Democratic Donkey! (Others might have called him a Jack A—, but a Donkey was much kinder.)

So, now you know how the two parties got their mascots. Well, you know one version of it!

P.S. Grandkids come and Grandkids go. And it’s so nice to see them come and then go!
