Went for a walk to enjoy the sunlight and milder temps today. Rooftop icicles reminded me I was going to shovel my own roof edges today, so I cut the walk short. Before turning around though something out of the ordinary caught my eye. It looked like Mr. Yuk on a high wire. Like he was saying, "don't bite these wires!"
I shoveled the roof, working up an appetite for Arby's. I knew the five for $5.95 you see on the commercials would never look as good as the pictures on TV, but I was pleasantly surprised. It was a good deal for the money and the sandwiches certainly were close to the ads. Onion rings weren't bad either with thickly sliced onion, not minced. It was odd that there weren't any customers in the dining room at 6:00 on a Saturday night though. Had myself a little tour of the dining area while waiting for the takeout. The space was decorated with tastefully framed nature prints and the radio was playing on the sound system. I knew it was the radio because all I heard were commercials - two Subway commercials in a row. I wonder if these guys ever did a study on how much they save by playing the radio versus how much they lose by advertising for their competitors? Well, the dining room was empty ...
There's a primary this coming Tuesday and I finally found out who/what we're voting for: a seat on Wisconsin's Supreme Court. Just in time too. I'll again be chief inspector at the polls, this time back in my home district. (It might come in handy to know who we're voting for.) I expect a much lower turnout than the 66% we had during the last one.
It's notable there will be seven world champion Green Bay Packers here in Waukesha Sunday, exactly one week since their Super Bowl appearance. Of all the places in the world these players could be right now... Pretty amazing stuff. I have to hand it to little old Waukesha Sportscards on Meadowbrook Road for this coup. Of course it does come with a price. You won't even be able to see anyone without spending a minimum of $15.00 for a signature. What did you expect? I wonder if community bloggers have press privileges?
