Worst Bank

FirstBank: Together we are one
This should read, "Together We Are None."

I do some of my banking at Worst Bank, and ALWAYS use the ATM machine for deposits, withdrawals, and payments. This morning, at 8:30, I stood in line to get change for a friend's business. I never stand in line. Lines are dead to me.

I was the second customer. I felt like I was in The Twilight Zone. Seriously, eight people behind the counter, and one (friendly, I'll give her credit) teller working. All of those people behind the counter were fascinated by CNN News, and I don't think they cared about Senator Kennedy's death. They were more glued upon Michael Jackson's cause of death.
Fifteen minutes later, I was done, and didn't even double-check my transactions. They were all fine, but more on Worst Bank, later.

An Excellent Day!

OK, so today went great. It smelled like my dryer was catching on fire, and the appliance man was here in EIGHT MINUTES! "Just" a dead mouse on the heating element. Got my hair done, had a quick lunch with a friend who wishes to remain anonymous, had an excellent doctor's exam, scored a parking spot in town and did not get towed, and I GOT MY 2008 TAX REFUND CHECK FROM THE IRB! With $16.10 interest for being late.

How in the World?

How did these guys back this dump truck into the crater at The Great Cruz Bay dumpsters? Oh, I know! They wanted the day off.
Photos are blurry since I was sort of, well, not really sort of, driving when I took them.

What is this?

An Easter egg? Waa? Why would you want not one, but two, of these things at the top of your driveway?

Going Postal

Check it out, an actual piece of mail received, which was run over by some vehicle while laying upside-down in the road. Which reminds me of the cargo plane carrying our mail, which caught on fire, and much of the mail was destroyed.

I did receive one piece of mail salvaged from the fire, with a little scorch line across the top, and water damaged, and smelling of fire. Kind of like "Scratch and Sniff Mail".

I'm back!

Hello, people!

I had to delete my first blog, not that there was much to delete, anyway! Three entries and a friend's photo (sorry, dude!).
