Ice Cream Trucks Have Outgrown "Pop Goes the Weasel"

I live in a neighborhood with a twice daily visit from the ice cream man. I know he’s coming because my lab and German shepherd go crazy when they hear that familiar tune – Pop Goes the Weasel.

How many Area Directors get this kind of text message?

This past sunday, Albuquerque lost another restaurant. While I was reading the paper, getting ready to watch some playoff games, others were getting a TEXT MESSAGE saying not to come in, since the restaurant was closing. I won't give the name of the establishment. It's unimportant. The tragedy is the message and the way it was delivered.
