Sunday Stuff

I had the most delicious tomatoes this weekend. Dad has grown some real winners this season. The are full of flavor and juicy. It makes me want to grab the salt shaker and head out to his garden. Yum.

The tomato plants that we have here are struggling to make a go of it. Next year they are going in the ground. I do believe that is the problem. Being in post requires so much constant watching to keep them from drying out and then the heat on top of that. It doesn't take them long to dry out.

This afternoon I went out to lunch with Mom & Dad. We had a great time together. It was fun getting out with them. We don't get to do this too often. Fun time. Thanks again Mom & Dad.

The dogs have been on guard duty all afternoon - the cats have been teasing them. I wouldn't want to be one of them if Bounce got out. I'm pretty sure that he'd chase them, but not too sure of what he would do with them if he caught one.

Credit Cards for ALL
Today at 9:09am

The Bank: Bank of America, can I help you?

Customer: Yes, I want to cancel my account. I don't want to do business with you any longer.

The Bank: Why?

Customer: You're giving credit to illegal immigrants and I don't think it's right. I'm taking my business elsewhere.

The Bank: Well, Mr. Customer, we don't want to see you do that, but we can't stop you. I'll help you close the account. What is your account number?

Customer: (gives account number)

The Bank: For security purposes and for your protection, can you please give me the last four digits of your social security number?

Customer: No?

The Bank: Mr. Customer, I need to verify your information, but in order to help you, I'll need verification of who you are.

Customer: Why should I give you my social security number? The reason I'm closing my account is that your bank is issuing credit cards to illegal immigrants who don't have social security numbers. You are targeting that audience and want their business. Let's say I'm an illegal immigrant and you've given me a credit card. I have a question about it and call for assistance. You wouldn't be asking me for a Social Security number, would you?

The Bank: No sir, I wouldn't.

Customer: Why not?

The Bank: Because you would have pressed '2' to speak in Spanish. We don't ask for that information when calling in on the Spanish line.

If it does raise the hair on the back of your neck, then forward it to every human in the country including every representative in Washington, DC four times a week for a month.
