We adopted Luee from the Humane Society in 1996. He was 2 years old, but still a pup. He has slowed down a bit; his age is catching up to him. He is the best dog anyone could ever have. Luee had to be put to sleep on April 15, 2009. Rest in Peace Pup.

GUARD THOSE KIDDIES;GIVE OUT THEM PILLS
Happy Thursday Guys and Dolls:
On this second week of January we pay honor to those brave men and women who are there in sun, rain, snow and freezing temperatures to protect our little ones. I’m talking SCHOOL CROSSING GUARDS. Stand up and raise your glasses and give a mighty cheer for the services they provide. I say give them all a raise they desire it. They risk their own lives stepping out in traffic to cross the little tykes safely and truly deserve the recognition of this honor. Maybe stop and bring them a hot cup of coffee to enjoy. Down here in Florida we have more than our share of idiots who have driver’s licenses. A friend of ours is a crossing guard and told us of one bozo the troopers pulled over going 45 when the 20 mile per hour lights were flashing. A little advise from Joey Z make the guard’s job easier, slow down and watch out for the kids.
Today is also “NATIONAL PHARMICIST DAY” those great dispensers of pills and advice. Most of the pharmacies down here are of the national chain variety, the food stores or the big chains Wal*Mart, Targets etc. I’m sure in the small towns one may find a family owned business which I personally miss the most. Growing up in my neighborhood I remember having Harbourt’s Drug Store, later changing to Scott Taylors. There was a small hole in the wall drug store called Brunswick Drugs; it was a hangout with a cool soda fountain and a place to have that secret cigarette. There was another drug store on the corner of Brunswick and Pine St right across from the fire station. I can’t remember the name, I want to say Rexall but I’m sure my reader the “Skipster” will come through with the right name. I can’t go on without naming Episcopo’s Pharmacy on Liberty and Chambers St. a great family owned pharmacy and the great service they provided when we lived in the Villa Park area.
