POPEYE CHICKEN AND POLITICIANS
Thursday, Feb. 21, 2008 - 3:30 a.m.
It was a good meal.
And the mashed potatoes
tasted like potatoes, not cardboard.
I am without a schedule. (retired)
I am finding it hard not to abuse my newfound freedom. (time)
My brother (70 yrs old) just bought a new motorcycle.
My ex-wife/friend is researching my genealogy. I appreciate the time and effort she spends doing that.
I copied some papers at the library, and found out my great grandfather was a Baptist minister and a politician.
He first took office in 1884. Lost his bid for mayor of Battle Creek a few years later.
Then he went on to become a Judge in Calhoun county.
He started as a whig. Then a prohibitionist. A Republican defeated him in the mayoral bid.
Also learned that my grandfather retired from Union Pump in 1930.
I always remember he was called the meanest man in Eaton County.
Don't remember him much as he died in 1953, and I was only three years old.
He was 80.
