While attending this festival and wearing a Bernie Sanders t-shirt a senior gentleman asked me “Who is this Bernie fellow and what is he running for?”
I replied “He is running for President on the Democratic ticket.” He replied “Oh you mean that fellow from New Hampshire?” I paused for a moment not sure if i should correct him as to Bernie’s home state being Vermont, lovely wife piped in with, “Yes, are you going to vote for him?”
He responded with a quick and abrupt “No.” I just smiled and walked on.
Now fast forward to last week. Leaving the doctor’s office at Covenant Medical Center. 800 Cooper Avenue Saginaw, Michigan. Waiting for what must be the slowest elevator in the continental United States. I was wearing the shirt pictured here.
The elevator doors opened and two senior folk, one man one woman looked at me and simultaneously said. “I like your shirt.” I smiled and said “thank you, I like it too”.
