Walking back to Plum Garden, I found this cute little dog sitting in the back of McHenry Alderman Andy Glab’s truck:

Dressed for the occasion was this dog of the Andy Glab household.

  1. Cal jack franks is not talking to volunteers that is Mickey shuck from the gop and Tina hill

  2. Is Sandra Salgado married by any chance?

    Just had a thought that’s all.

    I don’t mean to offend you Sandra.

    Thank you.

    Dave

  3. Sandra, after re-reading my ‘post’ above, I felt it a bit awkward sounding.

    I am returning to McHenry County very possibly in the near future and I wanted to meet with you about a precinct position in any area you are presently lacking.

    As we all know in small towns, an innocent lunch out could be mistaken for something not very innocent.

    I apologize if my post above caused you any embarrassment.

    Should I decide to relocate back to McHenry County, I would very much like to help out the party in any capacity needed.

    Most sincerely,

    David J. Bachmann

  4. Stand4Truth: Maybe Cal should have posted: Jack is talking to his supporters.

  5. They’re not necessarily supporters just because they talked to him.

    Do you know for sure they are supporters of him?

    They could have been talking to him about anything — asking him questions, criticizing him, praising him, making small talk.

    I can’t speak for them, but I know that I have no problem speaking to people who I disagree with.
