Not only was he an expert on kiosk history, but he cuts a fine key! And also replaces a battery with professional precision as well. Diann and I celebrated with sister "power" by donning our own style - she just happened to have a moustache in her purse, and not to be outdone, I inverted my sunglasses to look 'stached' as well. Dave took our pictures and we parted as two satisfied customers.
Due to the recent change in status of being part-time city dwellers, I am going to begin a series much like that of the Pink Suitcase Chronicles. This is the first installment! And it's a good one for learning about what we find in our new neighborhood.
Yep...here you have it: the only drive-thru key (and watch battery) kiosk in the U.S.A.! (Maybe even in the world if you believe our "guide" Dave.) He's been recently relocated here from the confines of the Sears store less than a block away and he likes it just fine in his new digs.
We fielded him - my sister and I - many questions about the place and he was happy to give us details. Such as that this little building was shipped in from Arizona after the filming of Back to the Future where others just like it were featured. And he willingly posed for a picture that I got permission to share with you all. Here he is, according to his nametag The Key Expert Dave.
Want to hear the funniest part of the story? He told he's he'd like to go out for "beverages" with us, but he had too many hours still at work. He thought we would be fun to hang out with. He's apparently got that number right. We do have our fun!
