|When we just think that we have heard it all, it’s guaranteed that something new will dazzle us.|
I have been thinking that I should get myself registered at a public library to have something to read when the time is at hand. So, both Banff and Canmore have nice public libraries and since I am currently camped close to Canmore, I went to “ELEVATION PLACE” as they have called the monstrous multi-purpose building. The public library is just to your left as you step into the huge open-concept arena.
At the counter I met a friendly lady who I hoped would register me as a library user. First she told me that there was a membership process to through. Then it appeared that she wanted something official stating my address, which I didn’t have. Next thing she started talking about a $12.00 membership fee.
Since when do people have to pay membership fees in public libraries? Asked that question the poor woman started to stammer around until she had to concede that she didn’t really know, but that she “thought” it had something to do with the local tax base.
And there I had it again. Canmore, through-out an unfriendly and most of all greedy town, had managed to p*** me off again.
I really must consider to take my business elsewhere.
So I went to the Alberta Information Centre to pick up a few local brochures. Bus drivers are supposed to know just about everything. A book would probably have been better, but that would have to wait until next day when I again would be in Banff.
I got some gas for the HONDA Genny. It comes at a pr.gal-price of $4.87. Remember that I am in oil producing Alberta, where we send our oil out of the country to buy it back refined for big bucks. When KeystoneXL is a reality, we will even send out more of it. Business as usual.
You have a great day and thanks for dropping by again.
