Early interesting Cars:
I have related this before, but here it is again. A ‘dry-wall finisher’ who was my subcontractor in that area called me one morning. “Mr. Darnell, I apologize but something very important has come up and I can’t finish the drywall today.”
“William you know I need that job done, but we will work around it. I hope everything works out ok!”
That afternoon William’s truck pulls up towing his boat. I went out.......
“Now Mr. Darnell I know I lied to you this morning, but you have got to see this Bass I got.” He had a beautiful 14lb largemouth Bass.
My response, “William I don’t know whether to fire you, kiss you or kill you!”
“I know, but I just had a gut feeling this bass was waiting for me.”
I thought of an old joke at the time. A priest looked out and it was a beautiful 'GOLF' day, but he had a service and Mass that day. He called an assistant and said, “I am too sick to serve today, you will have to fill in.”
That day God was watching and allowed the priest a hole-in-one. St. Peter asked, “God why did you do that?”
God smiled, “WHO can he tell?”
We figured since they had sent us the ballots months after we had moved, that it would be a normal thing, BUT it wasn’t.
We checked here for early voting and headed out to check the lines.
Found it was Tavares, actually less than a half mile from where we once lived on Lake Dora.
Only 2 or 3 people in line.
And now we have honestly finished voting, fed the ballots into the machine and trusted it to know how to count. LOL They gave us a pen and the Stickers saying YEP we voted (this time).
PS: I did make this entry shorter. And Again I wanted to say, with no disrespect to your state, I think the volunteers and paid state workers here in Florida are a cut above. The Valushia Co. worker could have just voided our votes, but instead took time to call and tell us to vote in Lake County.
