It's NOT Funny!

Saturday afternoon, my grandparents and I set out on a "city tour" of downtown Tucson. Our main goal was to find the memorial statue of my great-great-great-grandfather, Captain Jefferson Hunt of the Mormon Battalion. On such a beautiful sunny day, it wasn't too hard to find. He's the guy sitting down.

Now this may look like a normal memorial, however, as I was approaching, I noticed red all over his fingers. Blood? Why? What was going on here? Go ahead. Take a look.

Oh my gosh! Did somebody REALLY put red you-know-what's all over his fingers? That's NOT funny! That's disgusting!
Well what was funny was this...



Should grandpas REALLY be climbing up a huge slab of cement to remove a plethora of nasty red condoms from statues? Isn't that something the young spry granddaughter should be doing? Not this grandpa. You go old man!

That is too neat that the statue is one of your great great " grandfathers. Were you there when we did that big long mormon battalion trek as we marched through the washes of downtown Tucson to find this statue? And to think that you are related to him. Cute pics of your gramps climbing up on the statue and removing an interesting part of the story to your blog. Thanks for sharing, fun read.

Your Grandpa is great! I don't know that you are in a better place to be scaling statues though. If he can do it- let him! I'm glad you had a good visit with them!
