Grapevine : September 2011
Dear Grapevine clerk told her that they did not do this type of work. "Well, I drove here from Slave Lake because they told me you did," she proclaimed. "I'm sorry," said the clerk, "we've never restored photos here. We can only copy them for you." "Who does?" the woman persisted. e clerk said that some photographers do photo restoration. "WELL," she snorted, "where am I going to find a photographer at 7:00 PM in a strange city?" I tapped her on the shoulder and said, "Ex- cuse me, but I do some photography." "No you don't," she blurted out. "You're just jerking my chain to have a laugh." "No really, I do. Here's my card." She looked at it and said in a snotty tone, "I suppose you do photo restoration, too." "As a matter of fact I do," I said. e clerk loaded up my website, and I showed her my work. "I repaired these pics. Do you think I can help you?" "Well," she sighed. " is is an embarrass- ment for me. It would truly be a miracle if you were also a member of a twelve-step group." She near fainted when I told herIwasonmywayto an AA meeting. Just one of God's footsteps. Allan A. Edmonton, Alberta God's footsteps IDROVE to an o ce supply store recently.
