The Dog loves Joe Biden Stories!…..The Brooklyn Bridge CellPhone call…..

This involves Biden visiting New York’s Brooklyn Bridge…

Once there…. he meets this guy who told his wife he might see the Vice President….

He, he, he…Sure enough there’s Biden…BSing with the guy…and he tells the VP his wife won’t believe he actually met the Vice President Of the United States!

So Joe grabs the phone and talks to his Wife!

Biden is the man!


When Tom Shepherd, a chief inspector on the Brooklyn Bridge rehab project, left for work yesterday, he told his wife he might be meeting later with Vice President Joe Biden, so “I’ll tell Joe you said hello.”

What Shepherd could never have imagined was that his flippant joke would be become reality a few hours later.

Not only did Shepherd get to chat with the VP, but when he mentioned the earlier conversation with his wife, Biden suggested he call her right then and there on his cellphone.

When Betty Shepherd answered at her office, the next voice she heard was that of the vice president of the United States.

HELLO, IT'S JOE: Vice President Joe Biden shocks Betty, the wife of DOT inspector Tom Shepherd, with a call from the Brooklyn Bridge yesterday.

“I’m Vice President Joe Biden. I’m here to make sure your husband isn’t messing up the bridge,” she recalled Biden saying.

“I was shocked. If he didn’t have such a distinctive voice, I would have thought Tom was messing with me.”

Shepherd, 44, called it fitting that his once-in-a-lifetime encounter with a vice president happened at the Brooklyn Bridge.

“I think it was third or sixth grade when a teacher showed us a picture of them building the bridge,” he said. “I was just amazed by that. It’s been a lifelong dream to work on the Brooklyn Bridge.”

Shepherd got the chance when the city began a $508 million rehabilitation of the 127-year-old span last year, and he was hired through a contractor, Greenman Pedersen, Inc.

Biden joined Mayor Bloomberg, Rep. Jerry Nadler and other officials to spotlight the $30 million in stimulus funds going into the four-year project.
