Vacation Redux

It appears to have been deemed very short-notice-like that Annabelle and I are going to take one more shot at a ‘vacation’. After the previous fiasco I’m keeping my fingers crossed that things will go a bit better this time.

We won’t have internet access on this trip, so I won’t be able to catch-up with everyone until our return. In fact, if you’re reading this post we’re already… off… somewhere. So you get a well deserved break from me. For a while, anyway.

Also please don’t make too much fun of my fake Wayfarers… I did save around one hundred bucks on this deal, you know.

Don’t worry, it’s just a prop… still, please don’t try this at home. People will look at you strangely.

Customer: “Hello, shop-keep… how much for your finest broken bottle?”

Salesman: “Here she is… she’ll run you fifty cents, if you’re interested.”

Customer: “She’s a beauty, indeed… but I’ve promised myself not to spend one cent more than twenty-five…”

Salesman: ” ‘Fraid I can’t do that, sir… I got’s to pay the rent, I do!”

Customer: “I’ve got coupons!”

Salesman: “SOLD! You, sir, are a bargain shopper AND a gentleman!”
