Whatever happened to hiring kids?

The town’s using up its budget for snowplowing – not really a big deal, because we budget on the average snowfall, and some winters we save money, some winters we lose it, but back in the 60’s, kids like me could make $6 an hour – big money back then – manning sand trucks. I’m pretty sure Greenwich doesn’t do that anymore. But why not?

Sometimes, you get what you pay for

Mackey’s Mobil, in Old Greenwich, is probably not the cheapest garage in town, but I like Peter, Paul and Kenny (don’t know what happened to Mark) and I appreciate dropping off my car and walking one block to my office. And then there’s this: my daughter Sarah was heading out west last week and casually mentioned that her car (which, of course, had been sitting in the driveway for six months) had two bad tires. I went to Mackey’s at 8 the next morning and within 45 minutes, we were equipped and Sarah was on her way. That was great service, and it turned out to be fabulous service when I saw that Sarah’s route through Atlanta, Mississippi and Louisiana were all buried in snow just a day after she passed through. Thanks, guys.

Nope – no real estate news today

Fudrucker suggested that I just make up some stories, and I may resort to that tomorrow during the snowstorm but for today, there’s nothing happening.
