I began the day with some (needed) organization, and then made some calls for Senior Voice.
Sharon and I ate at Ruby Tuesday’s, and then got haircuts from Kim Soto at Headquarters Salon.
We had a dance lesson with Anya Kwan at Avon Ballroom, and then rushed over to the Avon Lake Democrats Annual Summer Picnic, where keynote speaker David Pepper – our next attorney general – gave a great talk.
The crowd at the Lake House.

Back home, I studied Russian for 20 minutes, and rode the bike for 25.
Began with a workout at Fitness edge: chest and biceps primary. Less mouth pain…
I organized in my den, read some serious books, and then we had dinner at Danny Boy’s in Rocky River.
Starting at 8pm I deployed Dennis Kucinich
yard signs at strategic locations at each of the seven polling locations in Avon Lake
, and a few other very visible locations as well. The last location was at Westview school, and after I finished there, I decided to check the section of Lake road by the old shopping center, and see if there was a location there: there was, but a Dennis sign was already in place. I went back out onto Lake road, and went slowly, looking for another key spot. A police car came up behind me, with every know color of light flashing. I moved over, expecting it to pass me, but it pulled onto the berm behind me.?!? I waited, put the down window. He came up: “Good evening officer.”
” What are you doing, where have you been?”
“Putting up campaign signs – see the back seat.”
”Where was the last place you put one up?”
”Westview school, and then I drove over to the shopping center.”
”You seem very nervous”, he said. Nervous? Totally Fucking
Paranoid, I thought!: It is a Very Short List of Good Things that happen in front of Those Lights. He ‘ran’ my plate and operator’s license, and then told me he had followed me out of Westview into the center. Drug activity there, he said.
I asked him his name, thanked him, and told him I had worked to defeat SB5.
“Keep up the work, he said”. I might have said “Voter for Dennis”, but I decided to leave it right there!
The victory libation will test even better.
Both Colbert and Stewart took the factually challenged fat boy to task.
I went to Fitness Edge – primaried on chest and biceps.
We had a late lunch at Bob Evans in Avon, and then I made calls for Dennis Kucinich.
Updated several blogs, and then got ready for a WCAL board meeting.
Rode my bike for 45 min.
Sharon had a hair appointment with Kim at Head Quarters Salon at 2:15, and after it we went to the Lorain County Board of Elections, where she voted (early). We then went on a cruise, looking for Fall Foliage, not seeing much. We stopped in Vermilion, and had a cup at the Main Street Grille (above).
Back home, we had a dance lesson (foxtrot, rumba, and swing) with Anya at the Avon Ballroom, and, after a quick meal, I went to the Avon Lake Democrats meeting.
Ended the day watching the Daily Show: the guest was Walter Isaacson, whose biography of Einstein I liked, and whose biography of Steve Jobs I downloaded onto my iPad (how fitting!)
We also watched the President on the Leno Show – he was great!
