Chris & Me

There are people I know who will trample innocent bystanders to get their picture taken with a politician or celebrity.  I suspect it's just a feeble attempt at validation.

Me?  It takes a bit of history for me to whip out the camera and smile a bit.

I ran into the great Christopher Columbus on Courthouse Square in downtown Scranton Monday morning.  I gave my camera to my friend Jasmine, and asked her to snap one for me.  She did.  As you can see, I was happier about the encounter than Chris.

Mr. Columbus was in town for the annual wreath laying, sponsored by the Columbus Day Association of Lackawanna County, as the Scranton Columbus statue.

Let's hope we all "discover" better times ahead.
