Hampton Roads' Biggest "Born & Raised" Know-It-All!

That construction that blocked off Redgate Avenue
between Colley Avenue and Hampton Boulevard sure took
a long time. Was that fake contruction or did they
go on vacation and leave the street blocked off?
-- Blocked In, Redgate Avenue.
Dear Blocked In,
As you probably know, that construction is over now
and Redgate Avenue between Hampton and Colley is now
passable. I heard someone in a nearby condo wanted
to have a hot tub in their condo so they blocked off
the street in order to put the proper pipes in to
lead to the condo owners house. The pipes had
to be shipped in from Oslo, Norway. The pipes didnt
fit so they had to order some more and it caused delays.
Thanks for your note.
Dear Downtowner Answerman,
My wife says she is not serving turkey this year for
Thanksgiving saying that I am too fat to consume a
fat turkey. Instead, she is serving a Cornish hen
and told me that it will help alleviate my fatness
during the holiday season. I am 98 years old and feel
that I am entitled to have what I want. I have always
had a turkey dinner on not only Thanksgiving but Christmas
as well. My new wife is only 24 and she wants me to
start going to the gym and to eat a more healthy diet
so that we can enjoy many more years together. Do
you think its fair for her to keep me from having
a turkey dinner on anksgiving?

Dear Missing Your Bird,
Your wife is trying to keep you healthy and reach
the goal of celebrating a 50th Wedding Anniversary.
By that time you will be 148 and she will only be
74. My advice is to cut down on the turkey and concentrate
on your diet and drinking plenty of Ensure. Leave
the beer alone, too, pal. Thanks for writing.
