A few months ago, when the owners of Sangre(Jeff et al)left town, there was a loud gurgling noise when they pulled the plug…that sound has diminished some but if you listen carefully there is still a slight murmur of running water/money/sweat going down the drain. The employees who took over have been trying to work a miracle and it will take another miracle for the local vendors who didn’t get paid by the previous tenants.

Telma, she of the sparkling smile, is always ready to offer excuses as  to why your shirts aren’t there but she does it in such a nice way that one really doesn’t mind(much). They even give you hand-made metal coat hangers, which come in handy for unlocking the car door when you’ve left the keys inside or serving as a suspension device for the garbage bag that hangs on the light pole outside(above the reach of the neighborhood dogs).
