Running into largo police

So I’m on my way to ST.Pete to meet Knight Hood with Artisteroi…
…and we pass a couple of Largo cop cars with their overheads on at the side of the road behind a van that has a rim but no tire what-so-ever on the rear passenger side. We decide to offer the cops the use of my Floor Jack, maybe we can pick it up enough to get the rim off. We do a U-turn & swing around behind them & I get out & walk up, it turns out it’s a Sergeant & a road Officer & the Sergeant looks at me & says “Out doing your good deed for the day?” and smiles. I offer him the use of the jack but they have a wrecker on the way. Odd thing is everybody on the scene is bald, even the van owner so I say OK I can’t help but I’ll tell you the bald guy joke” …
“What did the bald guy say when his daughter gave him a comb for his Birthday?”
“I’ll never part with it.”
We all had a good laugh & Artisteroi & I took off, some time you just bring Humor…but it helps.

You Guys won't believe this one…

You guys won’t BELIEVE this one….
So I got done at the gym today & I’m headed up East bay in a hurry to make it to work on time and at the intersection at Keene there’s a BLIND lady with one of those red canes (How I knew she was blind) trying to cross the intersection with cars flying everywhere! I pull into the Firehouse sub parking lot & bail out with the engine running & try to cross the inter…section to get to her. I’ve got the crosswalk & the light (And I’m not blind so I know I do) and this big girl in a beat up Buick turning right decides to go anyway. Fortunately I’m still pretty spry and slam my hand down on the hood & use it to launch myself backwards out of her way while she slams on her brakes & sits there with her hands over her mouth…I got other things to do. I run around behind her (I’m not giving her a second chance) & finally make it to the blind lady. She hears me coming even thru the traffic & I say “I’ll help you across the street.” She calmly tells me “Oh it’s ok, I just wait until I hear the oncoming traffic and then walk in its direction across.” I’m like “Wow…well the timer just changed & you got about 30 seconds I’ll walk with you anyway.” About halfway across I stopped & just watched & couldn’t believe it. There were cars flying everywhere & this blind lady was just unstoppable. She stayed calm, like she did it everyday (Which she probably did) & I nearly got creamed trying to reach her. Really lets you know who the Superheroes are.

Team Justice Descends on 'Burg's Film Fest

ST. PETERSBURG – Treacherous villains were nowhere to be seen Wednesday, as Team Justice Inc. descended upon downtown St Petersburg. Superheroes Master Legend, Symbiote, Superhero, Capes, Lady Hero and Artisteroi are the stars of Superhero Me, the premiere film of the Sunscreen Film Festival at Baywalk 20.
“I have unlimited metaphysically powers,” explained Master Legend, Winter Park native and founding member of Team Justice Inc., a non-profit tax-exempt organization.
“I’ve died twice, and it’s not fun to die. But, I am here to save the world.”
Other superheroes boast less awesome skills.
Symbiote, another founding member and active participant in the Real Life Super Hero Movement, does not claim to have any special powers. Rather, he recognizes that conscientious citizens need to stand up against anti-social behavior.
“We do a lot with charity, we give handouts, clothes. We make sock and water runs, as well as basic crime prevention. We want to make the society better for everyone,” he said.
Team Justice Inc’s mission, according to their Facebook page, is “[t]o help all peoples currently in need and to protect those who can not protect themselves”
Part of the responsibility, or fun, of being a Real Life Super Hero is donning oneself in a costume, or uniform, that represents one’s alter-ego. The aptly named Superhero embodies this stylish requirement.
The former power-lifter and pro wrestler dresses himself in tight-fitting red spandex with blue shorts. His picture on Team Justice Inc’s website shows him standing beside a flashy sports car.
“It’s an adventure,” explained the Clearwater native. “I’ve been in a fire and nearly been shot. But for the most part, people are appreciative.”
The League is not completely made up of men, however. Lady Hero, for instance, offers her services to the superhero collective.
“My superpower is the ability to listen and give empathy,” she explained. “Most people don’t listen, they just wait for their turn to talk.”
VIPs, board members and citizens of St. Petersburg delighted in the red carpet affair. Most took the opportunity to snag a photo with actual superheroes, and the caped crusaders themselves were friendly and eager to illuminate their mission.
“I’m sort of a mix between the professor from Gilligan’s Island and Sherlock Holmes,” explained Artisteroi. “I make a lot of gadgets to solve mysteries.”
After getting to rub shoulders with their saviors, the public could sleep easy knowing that these heroes are on our side against evil.
Tomorrow is the last day of the Sunscreen Film Festival. Visit their website for information on showings and events.
