Bits & Pieces - Who will sit there in January?

Who will sit there in January?
Bits ‘n Pieces
By Bob Robinson

The power of the pen. No sooner had I posted my earlier blog than I had the photo. However, Advocate reporter Tony MacKenzy said I was supposed to give him my email address, which I thought he had but evidently he didn’t. He got it from Tina Chalmers, his Editor. The caption on the email was “That wasn’t the deal, Bob.”
I was also told I can “use it for whatever sundry purposes you might have in mind.”
I’ll take your word for it, Tony, and I apologize. I also thank you. The only sundry purpose I have in mind for the moment is this blog, but I’ll file the offer for future reference. The photo is a kick. Here it is, folks… 

So who WILL sit there in January? Only one of them, but they got a taste of the furnishings – if only briefly – on Monday afternoon. Left to right, Republican Candidate Mike Stegall, Independent Candidate Keith Smith and Democrat Candidate David Niley. Think they’re having fun? Note who is holding the paperwork… ready to get down to business.
I had a great time campaigning to be one of those individuals… but I’ve got to be honest. I’m having more fun as a Watchdog and Citizen Activist than I ever did as a candidate.
Who said retirement was for rocking chairs?
