Monday, August 27, 2018 – Me and Beto
Here is my picture collage from the Beto O’Rourke rally last Saturday at the VFW Hall in Navasota, Texas. The Texas Congressman from El Paso is challenging Ted Cruz for the Senate seat.
Regardless of your political viewpoints, it was refreshing to hear an articulate, issue-focused, non-blaming individual speak and LISTEN to the issues facing Texas and the nation.
I was impressed by many things, including his charisma, his energy and even his worn brown desert boots. He is very unpretentious. However, I was most impressed when Beto took a long question in Spanish from an audience member. He then responded with an equally long answer in flawless Spanish. He then translated the question and his response in English. And if that ain’t enough, the man played guitar on stage with Willie Nelson at Nelson Fourth of July picnic.
Happy Monday. Here is a shout out to a faithful reader who had a scary happening this weekend. Thankfully all is well. However, Alabama Staple Head could be your new nickname.
Next week will be the first of My Monday After College Football Awards.
