Mayoral Inauguration

Ohhhhhhhhh was I pleased as punch when Mayor Elect Arty invited me to say a few
words today.  One thing about Southern gals you all may (or may not) know is we are never, ever, no never at a loss for words.  It has been said we could talk the ears off a corn stalk!!

Mayor Arty asked me to speak about being Mayor and a citizen of Blogville.
Mayor Arty you are following in the pawprints 3 fine men mayors Frankie, Murphy and Stanley
and moi, Madi, the first feline and first female mayor.  Congratulations on being elected mayor of this fine community we lovingly call Blogville.  If I was only allowed one word to describe  being a citizen of Blogville, it would be "ACCEPTED"!! 
That is what my little Feline Heart felt when I took office.
Speaking of females Mayor Arty you have one fine one by your side in
Mabel and I hear she is a huggy puggy too!!
I was a feline walking in K9 pawprints and everyone accepted me.
Even though I shop on the dark side of Petsmart.
BUTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT  thankfully I can use more words.
In closing, I would like to use each letter of Mayor to describe the office.

Many hats
Awesome job
You will cherish every moment
Outreach to community creating fun and gaiety


Mayor Arty, good luck, have fun, and holler if you need me to help.  I'm here fur you good buddy.
Hugs Madi(son) D. Cat, 
Feline Female Mayor Emeritus,
Director of F.L.U.F.F  and Dispatcher 2017 Mayoral Cabinet.
