Local cycling paths and running trails will be a little less crowded for the next few weeks,after a cycling accident late Thursday afternoon left real estate broker, ex-mayoral candidate and present city council candidate Tim Leigh with a broken femur.
The good news is his ego is still intact.
Tim underwent an operation this morning, and the prognosis is good, say those close to him. He’ll have to stay in the hospital for a few days and full recovery is expected to take a couple of months.
This morning, he was on his cell phone at 5:30 – so if you got a call from some guy claiming to be Tim Leigh who gave you some story about being stranded in the hospital without a dime, and insisting that you close your real estate deal right now…that’d be Tim!
I’m extraordinarily fond of Tim. If ever there was a time to make massive real estate investments, this is it – since Tim’s not around to snap up the best deals. Unfortunately, I’ve had my problems with subprime loans, the economy, and the general stinginess of bankers.
Suppose we send flowers and our wishes for a speedy recovery, huh?
He’s stuck for a few days in room 662 at Memorial Hospital – so send flowers, chocolates, champagne, and signed contracts.
