I feel a mixture of amusement, horror and curiosity everytime I read the local Penny Power classified ads newspaper that serves Bucks County and the Lehigh Valley. A sampling from this week’s edition:
♦ PETS R KIDS TOO! Has quality puppies, kittens, fish, small animals. Feeders. All animals guaranteed. New! Clearance bin. New inventory arriving weekly. Stop in and see our specials.
♦ NOW THAT WE ARE on our way into this New Year, what better way to get the year off to a good start than by having some new flooring installed!
♦ FREE REMOVAL of sawed logs, vintage stereo equipment or let’s barter for any power equipment items for firewood.
♦ PET HOLSTEIN COW, $400.
♦ THUMBS DOWN to the person who stole two baby cars seats out of my son’s and daughter-in-law’s yard on December 30th. You should be ashamed of yourself, to steal something that a child depends on for safety is a disgrace. To go into someone’s yard and just walk off with things that don’t belong to you is just so wrong. You left my grandshildren without car seats and they were unable to go visiting for the holidays. If you don’t have a clear conscience and want to return them, please do. If you choose not to, you are the one that has to live with yourself. Every time you use them, just think of the children who have no car seats. Upset Grandmother
♦ MOVIE NIGHT Sunday, January 27, 6pm. “The Last Sin Eater.” Cornerstone Community Church.
If you want phone numbers for the ads let me know.
