    True story – before we closed on the house I had to go get a certified check from the bank for closing. I walked in and asked for the check to come out of our checking account. She asked for a form of ID.

    I pull out my SOCIAL SECURITY CARD.

    “Sorry”, she says, “that’s not an acceptable form of ID. Do you have a credit card with your name on it?”

    No. No, please tell me you’re kidding. Please. I’m beginning to despair…

    When you started to describe Her, I had a vision of Shelob.

    And I’ll add…

    ..your nostalgic description of a pastoral summer of sweet leisure and content transported me to a time and place so beautiful that for a moment I actually forgot where I was.

    It was a good juxtaposition to the image of me standing in that dirty, stinky Village Pantry flashing various licenses and certificates to prove I exist so I can buy a cigar.

    WOW. I’m laughing and nearly crying simultaneously. Such hilarity can ensue from those attempting to squeeze a few precious drops of “power dew” from the unsuspecting pawns that step into their domain. Good stuff Gimcracker. Ahh…the memories…
