It is Monday, May 21, 2012 @ 10am And we are starting another week without the wind turbine not working. Today it is shrouded in clouds, but you can still make it out and it's not turning. The Groovy Gator is the perfect location for a wind turbine repair center!

I think a purveyor of risque ladies undergarments would be a terrific addition to the rest of the upper crust stores. I know it crashed and burned across from Clemments but what the hey.

But it was nice having a buxom woman in a scanty French maid’s outfit waving at you as you drove past. Those were the good old days when we didn’t have broken wind turbines, failing state funded video gamers, and all of our bridges were good-to-go without tolls.
