Only Republican on my block no longer?

One of my neighbors is very active in Democratic politics and whenever we get a new neighbor, he always checks their party affiliation against voter registration. He’s delighted for the past few years in pointing to anyone who would listen that I’m the only Republican on my block.

We just had some renters move in who we haven’t had an opportunity to meet, it being winter and all, but one of them has a “Castle for Congress” bumper sticker on their car.

I pointed that out to my neighbor and said, “Maybe I’m not longer alone on the block.”

“Looks like it.”

“Of course, it is a Castle sticker, which might argue against the owner of the car being a Republican.”

“True.” And he perked up a bit.

So, time will tell.
