I Have Been Replaced!!!


click for bigness - although bigness is not a problem for most here.

I knew it was too good to last. The GOP (Good Old People) self-investigation committee did some investigating and decided I was not the man to run for Mayor of Marietta. The have in print that I said a bad word. Well, actually it was two bad words, but only one of them is actually bad, the other one used by itself is not bad. They claimed they have in print that I used the B.S.word. Of course I denied it, it just isn't true. But they said they have proof. Isn’t that a bunch of bullshit?

So, they gracefully asked me to respectfully resign as a nominee. OK! No problem!

They replaced me with two clean-cut Americans with no scandals in their past.

Tonight was the GOP Tuesday night meeting. Chef Monte’ prepared hot dogs and chili which would compete with Betty’s and Brandi’s chili. There was onions finely diced and just the right bit of spice….and assistant chef Don McCall prepared the onion rings…. They kept coming hot.

And on top of that was watermelon. And of course, we had the always constant cool breeze.



This guy showed up, which he has been to most of the meetings but for some strange reason his picture has never been taken. I know, I know, he is a handsome brute isn’t he?

Here are some random pictures... in other words, the ones that stayed in focus.

Do such people really exist? Surely they don't want to run for office.

Paul Roper had told me an opponent was coming if I did not attend the GOP on Tuesdays. First, Ruppert, then Lightning. Is Arnold Guest next? Would yall like to be in my cabinet? Lightning could be the "CZAR" of Marietta history. Guest-Tumlin would have a familiar Marietta flair similar to an old Ford Company off the square. Incidentially, many people were asking who Lightning was running for Mayor and the paper even called. Thanks, Thunder (still in the Mayor's race.)

Judy,
Let the scandal-free throw the first rock - or mud.

Thunder,
I told my cousin Johnny Hunter that you might show up for a GOP meeting and he said to tell you "Hey!"
So, Hey!
I remember the Ford Dealership just down Cherokee Street, next to a magazine shop I think... and they sold popcorn. I almost bought my first car there with my Daddy co-signing with me - but I backed out.
Guest and Tumlin would be a good team again. Just talk Arnold Doodle into it.
