School of Cash?

cash.jpgThey are building a new elementary school in my area, that #2 will eventually go to.  They are discussing what to name the school and there are some interesting possibilities….Station Camp, which is the name of the high school that will be next door and the roads surrounding the school. It makes sense, but, I think it’s kinda blah. 

Another possibility is naming it Durham Elementary School after a noted Sumner County historian.  Bleh.  The Durhams name is on just about everything in Hendersonville and they have more money than God. 

There’s a few other names of people you would not recognize, but, one name you would…dig if you will, the possibility of Johnny Cash Elementary School….I kinda like his given name better….”John R. Cash Elementary School.”  #2 absolutely loves Johnny Cash and he would be absolutely proud as punch to say he went to Cash Elementary.  How cool would that be?  What could the mascot be?  The possibilities are endless. 

I bet they won’t do anything so cool though. 

Grocery Rantin’

This may come as a shock to some, but, the woman that does the voice on the Self Checkout computer at Kroger is also the voice of the Self Checkout at Publix.  I wonder if the Kroger people are aware of this?

It’s a different voice on the Wal Mart Self Check Out.  I like that one better anyway cause the Kroger one is so damn picky.  The Kroger  one is so contrary about how and when you put your item in the bag.  Wal Mart doesn’t care if you bag it or not.  Like, if you have a pack of gum, it doesn’t weigh hardly anything and the computer at Kroger doesn’t pick up when you put it in the bag, then it says “Wait for the attendant.”  Psssht.  I don’t have time for that.  If I’d have wanted to take lots of extra time, I’d have gone through the regular line and listened to the teen cashiers converse with the teen bag boys.  Gah.

Friday Funnies

Get your Depends on.

I wish they’d have put the clip in here that had Tim Conway as the dentist that accidentally put the novacaine shot in his hand. This stuff cracks me up.
