Smile of the Week: Another funny comics store experience: "the Box"

As I mentioned last week, Wednesdays are new comic days. So, every Wednesday, Tom and I put our
Comics box
three canine kids in the truck and we drive to the comic book store (after a Dunkin' Donut sandwich dinner).  

   At comics stores, you can have subscription box, where the new comics that you collect are placed inside on a weekly basis. As soon as a known customer enters the shop, one of the employees says hello and goes to the back of the store to get the customer's comics out of their subscription box. 
  Last week, a young bearded employee named Jake saw me come in and said really loudly "Hi Rob, I'll grab your box!"  
   I looked over at Torma, one of the other employees,  and said, "Well, Jake can grab my box any time!" - as raised my eyebrows.  I'm out to everyone in the shop and of course, no one cares. Torma got the message and laughed out loud. It's always fun to go to a store where you know the employees and can joke around.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
