Orchids and Onions

Another beautiful day in Havasu...

Orchids to fractal enlightenment. Some are hung up in their childish ways unable to own up to the fact they may have hurt someone.

Onions to greedy servers. A tip is a gratuity, not a requirement. Ask the business owner if he thinks spending $1,000 is being cheap. We can take our business elsewhere and you will be out of a job and the business may close. Perhaps we should also pay your student loans and health insurance. Grow up.

Orchids to the young man that closed my gas tank at Smith's this morning. I was in a hurry and completed everything except putting the lid on and closing the door. Saw you in my mirror closing everything for me. You rock, and made my heart sing all day long. Blessings Dee

Onions for not allowing leashed dogs at the swap meet. There are so few places to be able to take your dog in this town. Chalk up another, "no dogs allowed" zone.

Orchids to over 200 hot rods and custom car owners that came out to support local veterans and their families at the Classics Club Veterans Show at Windsor Beach. Lots of money raised for a great cause.

Onions to the Mohave County supervisors who don't want to enforce the "red flag" gun law that would keep guns out of the hands of mentally ill/dangerous people. That means that we citizens are going to be in constant danger of being killed by one of these people. Guess I'll stay home more.

Orchids to the announcer at the Havasu 95 Speedway for his public safety announcement to remind people that the left lane "hammer lane" is for passing, not parking. Punch it chicken

Onions to the eye doctor office! My appointment was 1:10 p.m. and waited till 2:15 to see eye doctor. Waiting room overflowing! Stop booking so many people and see your patients on time! My time is just as valuable as yours!

Orchids to whoever moved the tire on the vacant lot to the trash pile. Shame on the nincompoop who discarded a tire at the 95 and N. Palo Verde vacant lot.

Onions to the remodeled store with all of the self-checkout areas. They take jobs away. We complain about jobs going to other countries, but we are doing it to ourselves every time we use self-checkout.
