Ash Wednesday

Old Jack, in my mom's lower pasture, Jefferson  Co. TN
And pray to God to have mercy upon us
And pray that I may forget
These matters that with myself I too much discuss
Too much explain

~ T.S. Eliot

Old Jack had to get the ashes for the sin of what? Being the Dems symbol?

Old Jack has been my "mascot" on Facebook for several years. In real life he's at least 30 years old and has been the family pet away from home, i.e. when we go to Grandmaw's. He's an Andalusian Mammoth, so he's very gentle. He loves peppermints and dog biscuits, and once ate a red velvet cake.

As a fixture in overwhelmingly Republican East Tennessee, I'm pretty certain he ain't no Democrat.
