It is always easy to have misconceptions about regions of our United States. For instance, I admit I have had a misconception about New England and New York State. I have always thought that no one in the far east corner of the U.S. listened to country and western music. Well, Baby Jack's first cousin, the other Jack, sure put me straight this weekend. Jack Mulcahy is only two and a half years old but he certainly is into country and western music. Samantha, his mother, said his first word after Momma and Dada was Brad. Short for Brad Paisley, the country singer. And when he is listening to his favorite country station up on Cape Cod he can tell you who is singing some of the songs. He recognizes and likes the country sounds of Trace Adkins, Kenny Chesney and Martina McBride. What a hoot that is! And this little guy is a real worker bee. Last fall when Jenn and Terry were in Cape Cod for Thanksgiving with the relatives they discovered that this Jack just loved to rake leaves. Well, on Sunday afternoon after church services he begged Jenn to let him sweep the floors in the house. So here he is sweeping with the broom and dustpan. Sweep on you cute little Cape Cod Country Boy.
