A Few Thoughts as We End August

The month of August will finally end this week.  It’s a been a long hot one. 

(author’s note — we having a “Chappy Hour” at the Auld Shebeen in Fairfax on Thursday, 8/30 at 7 pm.  Please come join us to watch Jason Campbell and the Redskins)

I’m grateful for all the people who have been walking neighborhoods and knocking on doors for me.  I can’t say that enough.  I really can’t.

This August has personally been one of the busiest of the campaign.  I’ve covered four precincts and hit about 3,000 doors on my own.  I’ve met a lot of people and heard a lot of ideas — including one man who wanted Virginia to have its own currency. 

Thanks to everyone who spoke to me, encouraged me or just give me a glass of water.  It’s been a pleasure.

Through it all, I’ve continued to go to the office every day and practice law.  I had a trial two weeks ago, which took a lot of time and preparation.  Fortunately, we were successful.  Don’t forget — politics in Virginia is not for professional politicians.  Or shouldn’t be. 

I don’t usually do this but …

My wife Sharon and I celebrate our wedding anniversary on Friday, August 31st.  It’s been eleven years together.  They have been the best years of my life. 

See you in September!
