One special evening...

ezs note:  Last night, I was doing my usual thing (blogging, of course) when I saw the familiar face of the manager of Anytime Fitness.  He asked if he could sit down, to which I readily agreed.  We started chatting,  and eventually the subject turned to local issues.  He mentioned a bike path which would be placed on Albany Avenue.  Intrigued, I asked what organization worked on this.  He said he was a member of the Bishops Corner Neighborhood Association.  When I asked where the meetings were held, they were directly across the street from me!  (Duh...)

Bishops Corner is, as a neighborhood, especially vibrant and active.  Of course, the people being so welcoming and friendly doesn't hurt either.  However, wherever there is a city or town, there is also a neighborhood... where YOU live.  Yeah, I had a stroke.  Yeah, I'm in a wheelchair.  But I'll be damned if I prevent that from getting involved.

How about you?

ezs note:  What the hell is this?  Too many horseshoe games interfering?  A "speedy trial" should be started in weeks or months (six at the very most)  never in years. Get with the freakin' program!!!
