Nipped out for some milk earlier this AM, (remember that 'AM', you'll need it later)
and spotted this notice in the Post Office window.

The USP of the 24 Hour clock is that it avoids ambiguity.
4.50, unless qualified by AM or PM can be in the morning or the afternoon.
1650 can only be in the afternoon, but you knew that, didn't you?
So why 1650PM?

I didn't notice the entry for Saturday until I downloaded the pic.
12.15AM. That's 0015, isn't it?

Sorry for your loss Bruce. I knew a man like that my father. I still hear from friends and relatives something he said or helped them with. As long as people remember then the deceased are still among us.

I'm sorry to hear about your friend, Bruce. You have my sympathy. Losing good people is bad enough, but really good friends are tough to lose.

Bruce's post reminds me of what Richard Petty said when Buddy Baker died:

Quote:
He was the kind of person that it made ya feel good just being around him.
That's about as good as it gets, right there.

I have. I went to her funeral today.
Actually, I have.

I went to her funeral Sept 2 last year.

Today the water heater was leaking because those damn steel nipples at the inlet and outlet, that Sears says not using voids the warranty, rust out. Of course once they are rusted enough to leak they collapse under a wrench.
My plumber buddy saved my ass but had to remove the sheet metal jacket and cut away the foam insulation.
