Just in case you’re wondering, Hot D***a is still without a functional soda fountain, and I still haven’t figured out how to be able to send outgoing messages on my computer like I could in the good old days. A number of other things are keeping me pretty darn busy as well Someday…

So, I apologize for the erratic upkeep of this blog and thank you for continuing to be a Hot D***a customer.

In the mean time I ask you to ponder why it is people get so excited about tomorrow’s newspaper today. It’s not as if the contents in the paper changes with a different label. But, boy, when I hand out papers for the Trib a lot of folks ask me if I’ve got “tomorrow’s paper” today. They’re disappointed when I don’t. I suppose it could be because they’ve already read today’s paper. I think it’s because they want to know the future.
