Post Picnic Post Saturday, September 17, 2005

It was great to get out to the picnic today. There were a lot of Democrats out there. Some of the more noteworthy included: Dr. Dan Mongiardo, Congressman Ben Chandler, Senator Wendell Ford, Governor Paul Patton, Heather French Henry(I didn't realize just how pretty she was), House Speak Jody Richards and the list goes on. The highlight was meeting former Georgia Senator and Vietnam Vet Max Cleland. He was something else and a real American hero. How they could bill him as unpatriotic boggles the mind.

All in all, it was a great experience and am really excited. It was meant to be an energizing experience and it was.

ah crap, you were there?

I was wearing a blue polo shirt and was sitting up in the front during the speeches and walked over to speak with Ben during them.

I was there too. Stayed near the back during the speeches. I really enjoyed hearing Max Cleland speak. What a great American he is.

Max Cleland was great. I got a chance to shake his hand and told I thought he was the definition of what a good American should be.

Some folks might have seen me. I'm about 6'3" rather large all around you might say. I had on denim shorts and a blue/gray striped shirt.

It was a great event though. I think Lundergan should do those more often, maybe not everything they had at this one but these types of events are good ways to get the word out and do the grassroots work Rocky talked so much about.

Yea, I thought it was a good idea though I'd prefer it to be in the summer.
