The cashier had to break their little self absorbed moment by saying, "Could please move up an put your items on the belt!?"
Well weren't they surprised! Hello! Grocery store! Public place! Lots of people! The cashier didn't say anything but she would have disintegrated these two as well. I'm sure she wasn't thrilled with the 20 items either. I had 20 dollar bill in my hand, the woman in front of me was holding a her card. As their groceries are being totaled up, the two have both lapsed back into the cyber world.
"That's $32.78." They both snapped back to reality and the guy starts fishing in is pockets for some money. He counts out the bills when his female companion declares, "Wait I think I have the change in my bag." She begins fishing through her bag. We had to witness this whole thing right down to hearing, "...75..76 77... 78." Oh the twits walk among us.
About my Godzilla/Julia Child header. I was just fooling around with my photo program, though the image of Julia was too small and looks washed out. Julia Child lived in Cambridge Ma. She occasionally shopped in the store that I work in now and also worked in back in the early 80's. She was a tall, imposing woman. Not that she was standoffish. She was fine. Of course she could attract a crowd but she dealt with it and besides the locals were used to seeing her around. Well we were joking about her size and then that morphed into her fighting Godzilla. A few weeks ago I was sitting in front of the computer and decided to make the movie poster. I was just amusing myself for about an hour.
I have been going through my pictures as I mentioned before. We went to a local country style fair back in 2007. It was fun and very colorful.
Of course there was also top shelf Las Vegas caliber entertainment.
The popular Twirl and Urp.
Well that takes care of the Topsfield Fair. To make this blog even longer. Here are picture (slideshow) taken in Boston on a spring day in 2007. We went, among other places, to the Old Granary Burial Grounds. Buried here are Benjamin Franklins parents, Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, and John Hancock. The interesting thing about John Hancock is that the hand that he signed the Declaration Of Independence with was stolen soon after he was buried. I didn't get all the gravestones photographed.
Well that's it for this long winded edition. Now back to, ugh...housework.
I'm outta here.
