FROM LIGHT BULBS TO DIM BULBS AT 7TH AND MONTANA ...

   

It was a Heartwarming Homecoming today as the gang at Starbucks kept a candle -- or in this case a light bulb -- burning for me while I was on vacation.  "Welcome back," said Barista Extraordinaire Rob, "We changed the light bulb and have your Grande Half Caff ready!"  The lighting fixture in question, hanging directly over the pastry case, became a source of controversy last week when word spread that the bulb had been out since July 23.  Speaking of Dim Bulbs, Our Friendly Neighborhood King of the Road, known for leaving his unsightly trailer parked in front of neighborhood homes for days on end, returned to 7th and Montana this morning after a brief hiatus.  Let's hope he left his trailer behind!

Bet that made you feel special!  I went to starbuks today and got into it with some parking dufus.  Afterwards, I wondered why did I bother.  He said he worked at McDonalds but I think he was kidding me...they are too high class to have the likes of him working with them!  :-)
