The backside of time.

The other day I was called out to the D & F Tower downtown to look at some structural work they’re doing in the upper 3 floors.  As it turns out, I was right behind the clock part of the tower, and I took some pictures.  Which I’ll share with you, ‘cuz they’re kinda cool.  Enjoy and have a fab Thanksgiving.

cursing

5 year old son:  “Daddy, I know what the worst word in the world is.  It’s fuck!”

————————————————————————————–

Me, playing a rhyming game with 5 year old son:  “What do you get if you replace the ‘d’ in ‘dog’ with an ‘f’?”

5 year old son:  “Fuck!”

————————————————————————————–

Me, to 5 year old son:  “I hope Santa brings me something nice.”

5 year old son:  “Like a booty?”

My son has no idea how relevant that is.  ‘Cuz yeah, I’d like some booty.

All you need is……candy?

My kindergartner:  “Daddy, what’s the importantest thing in the whole wide world?”

Me:  “Love for your fellow human beings.”

My kindergartner:  “Oh.  I thought it was candy.”

Before Obama…..

…I had never had a bumper sticker for a political candidate on my vehicle.

…I had never owned a piece of clothing (much less four pieces!) with a political candidate’s picture on it.

…I had never come so far out of the closet as a liberal.

…I had never voted for a winning Presidential candidate (sorry, Ross Perot!).

…I had never cried watching a political candidate win a race.

Such is the power of an intelligent, intellectual, compassionate and inclusive candidate.

Such is the power of Hope.

Early returns are in……

Well, the boys’ elementary school took a vote today and the results were 392 votes for Obama and 35 for McCain.  Let’s hope tonight goes as well, shall we?

It’s your duty.
