Remember last week's post, where I was lamenting the fact that no one wants to read the classics anymore - even if they're free? Well, apparently no one wants to read free mystery romances either.
We have had a basket of these things (note the desperate sign! Ha!) sitting out next to the other paperback romances for a few weeks now. They have less pages than most VCR instruction manuals but still - no takers.
Meet Speedy. He is the pet/mascot for the children's department. They assure me that Speedy is alive despite all evidence to the contrary.
Speedy used to have an albino frog buddy who reminded me of a raw floating chicken drumstick.
And here it is - our "gun free zone" sign. It's posted at the back entrance - I guess just in case employees start getting funny ideas about wanting to protect themselves.
I "feel" safer now, don't you?
