For Your Viewing Pleasure...

...your scribe is pleased to present these pictures of life in our fair Town. Enjoy!

Here we have the ever-popular Texas boot, immobilizing a local scofflaw who had run up some $310 in unpaid parking tickets. Oh, and add $75 for the boot.

If you click on the above picture, you will be able to get the wide-screen view and read the hand-written love note from the Department of Parking Services: "CASH ONLY!"

And here we have the Avenue at mid-morning on a snowy day. Notice that the snowplows seem to have overlooked the main street in Town. Schools were closed and residents were told to stay home because of the weather conditions. Your scribe, of course, took that as an invitation to get in the car and go out to see what was to be seen. No parking problem on Greenwich Avenue, obviously!

Finally, here is the extraordinarily talented James Kennerley showing some of the choir girls the different sounds the organs of Christ Church can make when properly coaxed. He gave them a ten-minute soup-to-nuts Cook's tour, and they were utterly riveted - whether by his skill, the organ music, or his boyish charm is a matter for conjecture. Perhaps all three?

Yeah, even that thing is all clean and pretty, new looking. Not used much are there are they?

Not really - most people get the message before it comes to that.

The meter maids in this town (most of whom are men) carry little hand-held gizmos that let them know if a particular car has a history of unpaid tickets. Then they call HQ, and the bootmobile comes out of its secret lair and affixes the hardware. All very high-tech!
