Couldn't help but scoff upon seeing a reference to “Picture retake day” on a reader board outside an elementary school.
In my day, there were no retakes. When it came to school pictures, you got one chance and that was it.
If you made a goofy face during the photo session, there was no turning back.
Do you remember sitting for school pictures back in the day? How did yours turn out?
Yes, I realize “Picture retake day” could have come about because of technical problems with the first go-round. Or it might be one of those deals where they take a group picture of all the students and teachers. And maybe too many people were home sick on the original date.
Maybe it is for student I.D. cards. Or something.
But I don't like to miss a chance to trot out my grumpy old man act. For further evidence of that, check out Saturday's Slice column.
A reader board on the Wall Street side of the North Hill Chirstian Church's parking lot caught Jim Price's eye.

There's a sign outside a gas station mini-mart in downtown Spokane advertising a special on milk.
It's for something like two gallons or several half-gallons. In any case the price listed is $600.
Maybe they didn't have any decimals for the reader board. Or maybe they reasonably assumed that would be understood as meaning six dollars.
But since I started seeing it a couple of days ago, I always think “That is how much milk will cost after the zombie uprising or whatever.”
“OK, if I put that on my charge card?”
