What’s in a Name?

As the political season heats up with the 2016 Presidential campaign already beginning,  I thought it would be fun to start paying attention to the political posters that have already begun to dot our landscape.FullSizeRender

While traveling on Corridor Z in south Georgia recently, I saw this sign posted on the side of a building in Ty Ty.  I wondered how Mr. Scarbrough acquired his nickname  “Tarzan.”  Is he big and strong, does he swing through the jungle, is his son named “boy.” hmmmm?

I found some other funny names for political office seekers that I wanted to share with you …..  Kinky Friedman – candidate for TX Agriculture Commission; Janelle Lawless – a judge in Michigan;  Timothy Shotwell – a sheriff in Washingon; Twinkle Cavanaugh – AL Public Service Commission; Ryan Fattman – current member of the MA House of Representatives; or poor Frank Schmuck – Precinct Committeeman in AZ. 

Funny and somewhat unfortunate names to be sure, but ….. do they have a friend named Cheeta?  Send me any funny slogans or names that you might see this campaign season.  I think I will have a contest to see who submits the best one.  You may just be the winner of the Campaign Sign Contest for ruthiecurtis.com! 

About Ruthie Curtis

About Ruthie I am a real estate agent in Columbus, GA and love my “job.” I enjoy being associated with the professionals at Bickerstaff Parham Real Estate and the folks that I come in contact with each and every day. I basically just love houses and all that is associated with them. It is so rewarding to help buyers and sellers reach their goals and to be a part of the process that makes it happen. I especially love gardens and how they can work to improve a property both in aesthetics and function. As a Master Gardener, I feel that I can add another dimension to the home buying and selling process. Partnered with my love of creatively doing the “what if we” changes to houses and my attention to detail, I can offer my clients a well-rounded approach to meeting their real estate needs while having some fun along the way. I have lived in Columbus for the past 25 years and have been actively involved in the community. My involvements include being the 1996 Race Director for the Steeplechase at Callaway Gardens; a past board member of Girls,Inc and the Columbus Regional Tennis Association (CORTA); a board member of the State Botanical Garden of Georgia, the Columbus Botanical Garden, the Chattahoochee Valley Camellia Society, and is a member of the Women’s Reading Club of Columbus and the Overdue Book Club. I am a member of St. Luke United Methodist Church where I serve on the Altar Guild.photo (10) I am a UGA Bulldawg – having grown up in Athens and attended the University of Georgia where I received a BA degree in Advertising. I have two daughters, two great son-in-laws, five grandchildren and a Jack Russell Terrier named Jasper. I live in the historic Overlook area in Columbus where I recently purchased an older home and enjoyed the experience of putting my creative knowledge and skills to work!
