Have you seen those new "electronic" billboards that now line the Highways around Western New York? Worst idea ever for anyone who wants to actually read one. Every single time I go by one and see something I want to read, as soon as I focus on it, it's gone! Next thing you know you are long past it and so much for that. I can't believe advertisers actually pay to be on them. At the very least I hope they are only paying a fraction of what they used to pay, because that's all they are worth.
Remember that blog I wrote a few weeks ago about the guy at Wegmans who kept going up to the self-serve soup kiosk and never paid for it? Night after night after night. One of two things has happened. He either died or he read the blog! I haven't seen hide nor hair of him since the night I wrote it!
Believe it or not, I vacuumed and dusted my house today. Had no choice really. It's just been me and Frankie for a while now and we are kind of messy. I didn't like it, and to top it all off, when i bent over to reach a low spot, i put my back out! What's wrong with a few hair-balls blowing around anyway? Well, at least it is done and we're good for a couple more months now.
Is there anyone in Western New York who isn't ill right now? It all began in November and hasn't let up! We are definitely getting our pay-back from the last few mild winters. I had the flu shot like usual, and then of course i got the flu. Then it spread through the News Department. That was our Christmas present this year. Just in time for the holidays. Now is the dreaded "cold". I was on an airplane last week and I knew it was trouble! At least three people right around me were coughing and sneezing all over the place! Anyway, it's been a week now and i just can't shake it. I was wondering, can dogs catch the flu or a cold from a human? Even Frankie seems a bit under the weather these days. I wait wait till we finally see the sun again!
I've been around for a while. Every time I think I have seen it all, something happens to shatter that belief. I was sitting at Wegmans tonight, as I usually do a few nights a week for my "executive" dinner, when I spotted one of the "regulars". I am still convinced that there are some people who actually "live" at Wegmans. This guy has been there every single night for years, and tonight he put on quite a show. I have to give him credit because he is such a "smooth" operator. He has his scam perfected. I am sure it has taken him years to get it down just right. He goes and gets a tiny little morsel of some food, then goes and pays for it, then goes and sits down at one of the tables and eats. But then, the show starts. After a few minutes he gets up and goes and gets one of those small "sample" containers. He then proceeds to "slither" over to the Soup Bar, always right next to his table. He fills the container with the latest offering, then "slithers" back to his seat and gobbles it down. I swear, within 60 seconds he gets up, takes his container back and then fills it up with the next offering. Looked like clam chowder tonight I think. Once again, he's up and repeats the offense. He's slick! Never the same dish twice! he rotates around the display, beginning with maybe, chowder then chili then cream of tomato then broccoli-cheese. Oh, did i mention he does this delicate dance without ever making a trip to the cashier!? I watched him make 5 trips! He then carefully cleans up his table, grabs his cart, which never has anything in it, and disappears into the produce section. I'm tempted to try it myself but the vision of me being dragged out of there in handcuffs and the resulting story in the paper the next morning, has made me think otherwise.
