I saw something "different" literally driving around out here last week...

and if wasn't a fluke because my wife saw it again today...

someone is using a full sized Cadillac to deliver pizza...

The thing is a tank...  the front end would be at your house by the time the back end was leaving the pizza shop...   I guess the pizza would be hot for sure that way...

but it has to cost a fortune for gas 8* 8* 8*

It did, I believe mid-April.   Must be 21 yrs old and carry extra insurance, and a few other requirements that I can't remember.

I noticed that Monroe Package Corp on Huber Dr. is no longer.
I took a picture of the water tower in case it is torn down.

The name of the company was Modern Packaging. I used to service their network about 10 to 15 years ago.

And I see there's a lot of new concrete there for the new monument you're working on 8) 8) 8)

When will it be ready?

From what I know of the Civil War monument, just a little touch up and the placement of the miniture tombstones that was on display last year.

No problem, just wanted to let you know. You being our main resident historian, I know how important it is to keep your facts straight. ;)
