Public service

I know that local councillors are often called upon to do duties way beyond their job description. But this one seems way and beyond the call of duty.

One of my rival bloggers and occasional commentator on this site, Professor Chucklebutty, spotted Colin Eldridge and team out with shovels on Allerton Road in south Liverpool over the weekend.

What was he doing? Clearing ice off the pavement so that local pensioners could get to the shops.

Now that is what I call public service! And I found the following photo yesterday on Dale Street Blues.
I have to ask, were Luciana and Wendy out hacking back the ice this weekend, or where they at home in front of the fire, playing with kittens?

Hey Dude-I love your blog! I discovered it thru Google blog Alerts. Please check out my blog at: www.boccibeefs.blogspot.com. I think we're soulmates!
I had a short humor piece published in the May 2009 issue of Dog Fancy and hope to return this year to promote dog adoption. I also get the hair on my back raised (and I've go a lot of it!) by our national politics and have tried my paw at commenting on the insanity. See post titled: Stalking the Wild Squirrel Part 2.
I smell a really cool collaboration here!
If you have an extra minute please take the time to become a "Follower" of Bocci's Beefs. I've got one from Dublin, Ireland-hope that's not a deal breaker!
