There are things I find I am getting too old to do. What made me think getting up on a step ladder inside a bath tub to paint was a good idea?

I learned of a new concept today. Well, it is an old concept, but new to me.

Ghost Signs.

Old painted signs, usually on the side of brick building, but faded and pealed and almost unnoticed in today’s modern world. But once I got the idea, it didn’t take me long to find one.

Look who’s back.

For those of you who don’t know, William J. Kelly had a minor brush with fame.  He’s the guy who got Chicago reporter Jay Levine to threaten him with the infamous line, “Let him finish or I’m gonna deck you!”

You can read more about the incident here:

As you can see from this page 13 article in today’s Sun-Times, Mr. Kelly is now running for Mayor of Chicago.  He actually announced his candidacy back on June 20th, but outside of a few blog posts, no news outlets in the City of Chicago reported on this.  I wonder why?  Could it be that in the past, Mr. Kelly and his self-proclaimed Kelly Truth Squad have been somewhat lacking in the whole Truth thing?

Here was my opinion back in 2010:

I wish Mr. Kelly luck, but it is my understanding that he still quite short of the 20,000 signatures he needs to get on the actual ballot.  I will be watching.  But I will probably be the only one.

There is a city out there. Somewhere. Under the clouds.

Won’t be very many more new blooms this year. We have to enjoy them while we can.

We are not moving. But if my son does not get his boxes moved out of my front hallway, I will move them to the street on garbage day.
