Finding Opportunity …

One of the tasks of the candidate is to spend hours on the phone, seeking both votes and contributions.  As I worked this past Tuesday, my eye was drawn to the site of my keys highlighted in the waning sun.

39 Days!

A New Milestone

It’s been two weeks since I’ve posted!  Where did the time go?  🙂

Thankfully, in between closing down the old practice, opening the new, and campaigning for Delegate, I was still able to find a few moments with the camera.

This first photo is from Carson’s Courtyard, a little resting spot in downtown Radford, created with Community Development Block Grants.

On another day, I stopped by the American Legion Building.  Built in 1928, the building has served as a temporary courthouse, Catholic church, daycare center, Radford Arsenal hiring office, dance hall, voter registration office, polling place, and home to Main Street Radford.  The American Legion members have started a restoration drive to raise funds for this historic building.

On July 4th, I rode the motorcycle to visit a few of the communities in the 12th District.

One of three covered bridges in Giles County, the Sinking Creek Covered Bridge was built in 1916.

This next one was taken with my new Samsung Galaxy.  Those of you who know me well, will realize that I have changed phones after 15 years as a Blackberry user.  Not sure it was a good move yet …

was followed by the Blacksburg Parade,

and then it was back home to the City of Radford for music and fireworks.

A few days later, the campaign office was buzzing with the sound of volunteers and staffers working the phone bank.

So thankfully, despite the pace of life, I’m still finding moments to pull the bike over and enjoy the view.
