……… The Indignity !
My wife Cindy and I spent an hour this morning, standing at the infamous 5 points intersection in Wilton Manors, stumping for Wilton Manors Mayoral candidate Doug Blevins.
me and the candidate Doug !
……. Now, going back to the title of this post, there’s certainly no indignity in stumping for Doug! …… Blevins is an old friend or ours. Over a decade ago, Doug was President of the South Middle River neighborhood, and gets much of the credit for starting to turn that neighborhood around…. He is a real go-getter.
…… No, the indignity came from this –
Yup, see those BIG damn birds up on the wires above…. well, I was just below them and they made a deposit right on my arm that was waving the Blevins sign!
….Now a little mea culpa – I had to think quick…I had a job to do and the bird’s offering was starting to dry- quick… I looked behind me, thinking I needed something in a hurry to wipe this indignity off … and there it was …
……….. So, sorry Governor ….. But if Crist wins tonight, I don’t have anything to worry about …. And if Doug does win, the first thing I’ll ask him to do? ….Do something about those overhead power wires at 5 points!!
