How We Fixed the Saturday Conflict

October 26, 2008

Wow!  45,000 Obama supporters went to UNM last night to hear our next President speak.  John McCain was in Albuquerque yesterday morning and 2,000 went to hear him.  I am so relieved that the really nice people at the Albuquerque Academy permitted our VST (tracking) seminar to be at their facility on Saturday because it would have been impossible to park and then to work the dogs at UNM — with the faithful coming in.  People parked miles from the campus and walked.  When Johnson Field filled, people stood across the streets and into the neighborhoods to hear him.

Actually it gave us (tracking people) the opportunity to work at two splendid VST venues.  Our seminar leader opined that we should submit both locations to AKC for approval for future tests.  Great weekend — in so many ways.

    Is McCain doing the same thing as Bush was 4 years ago? Only the already faithful could get tickets to attend the rally when he came here. There could be no possibility of a protester being within his field of vision. This meant that his rally had much lower attendance.

    We have no post-primary visits this year. Oregon has long been solid blue state-wide. It was interesting the last week seeing which counties were blue and which were red based on yard signs.

    I’m ashamed to say my state is mostly red… tho it was mentioned on the news last night that it’s turning more and more blue (yay!) as the years go on 🙂

    It’s okay, Traci. You may join the United America blue country with Ariel and Jeri — we don’t leave our friends behind!
