Braden's Guests Tonight.... SCFYR Chair Britton Pruett, Musical Guest Theory of a Deadman, and ME !!!!
Sorry gang, I missed my usual 900 PM deadline, but I was in Sumter tonight, for the local GOP Monthly Meeting. It had been so long since I had shown my face there, that I kinda felt a bit guilty, but it was a great meeting.
I'm telling you, if you want to be entertained while discussing politics, go attend a meetign in Sumter, and watch Braden Bunch. It felt like I was at a taping of a talk show. Braden is relaxed , fun, interesting, and just aloof enough to really make the time fly by. He used to write for the Sumter Item, so you know that not being able to give an opinion was probably pretty tough. No doubt, he's letting it fly a bit more, but without having it all be about him, which many Chairmen seem to do.
Sumter couldn't have picked a better Chair. As much fun as Braden is, I discovered his best quality during his time on Mark Sanford's staff, and his time with the Giuliani campaign. Everytime Braden needs your help, he feel like you are doing him a big favor, not like you should be honored to work for him. He is truly a class act, and if you don't get to work with him, you are missing out on a privilege. Hopefully, this will make up for the picture that pops up when you Google his name - all thanks to me.....
I only ended up taking two pictures tonight. I got a pair off, then I was suddenly was beaten senseless by a couple people who thought I was from a rival hotel. Those innkeepers don't mess around...
A Pair of Chairs, where's the end table? Britton Pruett and Tommy Grimes discuss Planetary Domination, and the Salisbury Steak for dinner. Britton will be doing her first interview here soon - once I finally pick the questions !!
Aside from the rabbit I ran over on Hwy 76 in Mayesville, the night was pretty great. And speaking of the musical act ??
