Still re-grouping in the aftermath of Christmas. (whew) Just so Indigo won't be reported MIA, feast your eyes on some of her pasties.

When my wife and I showed up at a very popular restaurant, it was crowded. My wife went up to the hostess and asked, "Will it be long?" The hostess, ignoring her, kept writing in her book. My wife again asked, "How much of a wait?" The woman looked up. "About ten minutes." A short time later we heard an announcement over the loudspeaker: "Willette B. Long, your table is ready."

Early one Saturday morning, the flashing lights of a police car appeared in my rearview mirror. After checking my license and registration, the officer asked, "Do you know why I pulled you over?" "No," I responded. "One of your tail lights is out," he said. "I'm going to have to issue a warning." "Whew," I said, without thinking. "I thought it was because my inspection had expired."

For years I've been getting a terrific rotisserie chicken from a nearby restaurant. One night as I placed an order to go, I told the girl behind the counter, "I'll pick it up later. Do you want my name?" "Oh, no," she said. "I've seen you come in here a lot." Then she scribbled something on a piece of paper. Feeling flattered, I did my errands. When I grabbed my order, I glanced at her note on the bag: "Old man in the pink shirt."
