How perfect that not only is it Good People Day, that it also JP Patches 80th birthday. If you’re a long time reader of Mortgage Porter, you know I’m a Patches Pal who has watched him since I was a tyke.
Today’s article in the Seattle PI also announced that the Statue will be complete and unveiled in Fremont on August 17, 2008! Donations are still needed and JP’s handsome mug will remain on my blog (right side of the page) until the fundraising is complete.
It looks like the statue has changed from what was previously unveiled…I wonder if it was the finger issue? During the unveiling at Fremont last year, the statue featured waving hands of the duo and someone (can’t remember if it was JP, Gertrude or from the crowd) said…"wonder how long until someone breaks off the fingers leaving just one?"
A tip of the hat to The Tim of Seattle Bubble.
