Little Caesars. One of my last posts mentioned a sad individual without balloons and, even though I haven't gone hot air ballooning in months, wasn't referring to me. At least I didn't think so. No, I'm not the clown who lost his balloons. But I am sad that Little Caesars on Summit is closed. Sunday the pizza shop made one last attempt to attract customers by attaching bunches of yellow and orange balloons to a sign in the parking lot and by Monday they were permanently closed. Now I'm not a connoisseur of fine pizza, but did love the fact that we could run in for a quick, hot, inexpensive meal that everyone would eat.
Auto Show. My last post mentioned the Auto Show last weekend was the reason for parking problems downtown Milw. Saturday. Well, now that I've got my facts straight, the Auto Show is this weekend.
Voting. In my 2/21 post about working the polls I failed to mention if my district saw any write-in votes. There was one - for Al Gore. Even though I said 10/14 that I would vote for him, it wasn't me. Speaking of the polls... I got paid today for my work. Sixteen hours on Tuesday plus two hours of training = $135.00. I would do it again even if I didn't need the money. It was great to see so many of my neighbors in the middle of a long winter. BTW, Deputy Clerk, Marie Bieber is looking for additional poll workers. If you or someone you know might be interested she can be contacted at 262-524-3550.
Laying down arms. The snowman standing sentry in front of my house for the last two months has finally surrendered to the elements. He put up a brave fight in the freezing/warm/windy/sunny/snowy/rainy/icy winter we've been having.
