Default Don't Let Them...

...find you 'standing' around; they'll find something for you to do.

The Mayor here liked the election sign stands I built for him last time around. They must have worked 'cause he was elected.
Apparently post election, he loaned the stands to somebody and then lost track of them.
Sooo...guess who got asked to make new ones.
Finished them off this afternoon, came in the house, checked my e-mail; Msg. from the Mayor, 'How are you coming along? I found the old ones...')

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Oh he will. I know where he lives...

Re the number of signs. The number and size is strictly regulated here; it'a small town. This way there's lots of opportunity for all the candidates, Mayor, Council, and School Board, to find a place on either public or private land for their signage. These would be for his 'big' signs...pretty sure I'll be sick of seeing all the 'Vote For Me' brochures by the time this is settled.
Seriously, in this town, if you don't know who to vote for you haven't been paying attention (to the issues) and probably shouldn't be voting anyway. I'd rather go to an all-candidates mtg. than look at pics of these guys/gals for a month.
(Last time around there was this Sweet Young Thing running...I wanted one of her campaign posters. I wasn't quick enough. )

I’m so sick of political ads here I can hardly stand it. And we got get to November 4th to get to the end of this one. Then they’ll start on 2020. And don’t forget the damned media crap.

He came. He saw. He liked 'em!
I'll drop them off in the morning...he's a block from my go-to coffee shop.
Single malt was offered; I opted for some nice red.

Always good to have a Mayor in your pocket. But seriously, nice job.

Yep, he'd have two sets or who ever borrowed them is in luck.
