In the Dark
This is my Guy de Maupassant rose bush. The flowers take a long time to open and are like an Old Garden Rose form. Very unlike what we expect roses to look like in the United States.
The most important news of the day is that Mrs. Sneed and I are celebrating our thirty-ninth wedding anniversary today. Happy anniversary, Mrs. Sneed.
I had to work today, like all Saturdays. The only good thing about it is that I get off work at four, instead of six.
The adventure for the day was when a car knocked down a power pole, and killing the electricity to the neighborhood. We spent the afternoon trying to wait on customers in semi-darkness. The cashiers had to keep track of all the sales by paper and pencil until the registers came back on. It was not unlike a hardware store from a century ago.
The cashiers were processing credit card transactions with an imprint machine. I haven't seen one of those in years and our eighteen-year-old cashier had never seen one. Time flies I guess.
Any thoughts that the employees had about an early closing were quickly dashed by the manager. When I left at fourish, the power was still off. The show must go on.
